No one who has made it very far gave up at the first hurdle.
Recently, I’ve felt like giving up on a lot of things.
I’ve asked myself again and again “what’s the point of it all?”.
Why can’t everything just work out the way they’re supposed to – with ease.
“Why can’t everything just be alright?” I ask myself.
You see, hurdles are meant to bring out the best in us. They are meant to bring out our creativity.
I find that when I do not allow myself to be overwhelmed by the magnitude of the hurdle ,and focus on overcoming it, my mind becomes open to ways and means of getting ahead.
They key here is the virtue of persistence. The ability to continue in a course irrespective of obstacles and set-backs.
Whether it is the journey to lose weight, to start a business, to mend a broken relationship, to be a blogger or to get to the olympics, the same principle applies; if you persist and don’t give up, you will get there.
