“Difficult things take a long time, impossible things a little longer.” ~ Author Unknown
Sometimes the thing we need to do isn’t pleasant, isn’t fun, isn’t anything we really want to do.
Or it might have started out easy, and fun, and then suddenly we reach the hard bit!
Now, to get to where we need to go, we have to get through this somehow.
When the going’s hard, when all you want to do is quit, when you are despairing because it feels like nothing is working and you’ll never get to where you want to go, and you don’t know how you’re going to do this thing, and you don’t feel ready,
You just need to remind yourself WHY.
I’m doing this thing because…
IT WILL BE WORTH IT!
Why are we doing this thing? Because it will be worth it. Because this thing will change our lives. Because we will become transformed.
Don’t quit. Don’t give up on yourself and your plans for a brighter future. Don’t shelve that dream.
Life IS hard somethings. Healing things, changing things, learning things, improving things, creating things; none of that is easy – it all takes time, effort, sweat and some pain.
And lots of people walking your path have quit.
But some didn’t. Some worked through that pain and kept going…
And YOU need to be one of them if you want to break through and end up in a better place.
“When you are inspired by some great purpose, some extraordinary project, all your thoughts break their bonds: Your mind transcends limitations, your consciousness expands in every direction, and you find yourself in a new, great, and wonderful world. Dormant forces, faculties and talents become alive, and you discover yourself to be a greater person by far than you ever dreamed yourself to be.”
~ Patanjali – the author of Yoga Sutra
Keep going. Rest if you must. But hold that end in sight and strive towards it.
Today I’m going to hang in there, and I’m not going to quit. Why? Because I know it will be worth it.
How about you? Are you with me?
Start the thing. Keep going. I’m right here cheering you on!
