This cartoon shows it all ! Wouldn’t it TRULY SUCK if success was right around the corner and you picked NOW as the time to quit??? I know, I know…it can feel like “Well how much LONGER am I going to have to wait to attract the relationship I want? How much LONGER am I going to have to work on this business until it takes off? How much LONGER until my dream becomes reality? How much LONGER until I can finally let go of the past? How much LONGER until I make the money I need to do the things I want and create the experiences I want? How much LONGER until the incredible life I know is on its way actually shows up??? Any of these questions sound familiar? Well welcome to the the thoughts that sometimes creep up in my own head! lol But guess what! NO WAY am I ever going to be that dude on the bottom of the picture! DO NOT GIVE UP BECAUSE… IT IS THERE!!
It’s the endurance factor, it’s the keep going factor, it’s deciding in the begininng that no matter what obstacles come up and how many times you may FEEL like giving up..you will NOT STOP! Becasue what you want could manifest in a week from now and you would have never known it…it could happen in 6 months, a year…or even two…or get ready….even more than that…but it WILL HAPPEN! When you want to give up, just rememebr why you wanted it or started it in the first place! And yes, besides the fact that you need to keep taking action along the way (happily!), there is a massive belief and faith factor in this…and no matter how many times you feel defeated, you MUST GET BACK UP! What’s the proof of this? Visualize it! See it! Feel it! Now you’ve created it…now it’s out there…you made your own picture in the cartoon…and now it’s up to you to go and get it!
I believe that there is always the “bigger picture” and that we are guided…that it is all unfolding exactly as it should (yes, even when the journey is looking NOTHING like what we expected) When you feel like giving in, challange yourself to go the distance…whatever and however long it takes! Just like in the picture above…it’s there for you…waiting for you to see how bad you want it. The twist in the game is that you sometimes don’t get to know the “when” …so just focus on your “why” …and KEEP MOVING FORWARD! 😉
COOL QUOTE ALERT !
“Let me tell you something you already know. The world ain’t all sunshine and rainbows. It is a very mean and nasty place and it will beat you to your knees and keep you there permanently if you let it. You, me, or nobody is gonna hit as hard as life. But it ain’t how hard you hit; it’s about how hard you can get hit, and keep moving forward! How much you can take, and keep moving forward! That’s how winning is done! Now, if you know what you’re worth, then go out and get what you’re worth! But you gotta be willing to take the hit, and not point fingers saying you ain’t where you are because of him, or her, or anybody! Cowards do that and that ain’t you! You’re better than that!” – Rocky Balboa
