Control your own destiny or someone else will – Jack Welch
Don’t let others create your destiny and place it in your hands like you have no choice. Sometimes, it may seem your world is upside down and things are spinning out of control, that is not the time to give up, take a deep breath and take one small step after another.
Winston Churchill said ‘Never, never, never give up’
And we hear stories of triumph when people persevere, it is rightly said that it is darkest just before the dawn. When challenges threaten to overwhelm and drown you, what do you do? Some people bury their heads, some give up and some run back to their comfort zone, only a few stand up to the challenge, and know this, in life, only those who stand up to a challenge and fight, always come out victorious. You cannot receive anything while your arms are folded; even that act of receiving requires an action from you.
Do something, take some measure of control back because you will have no one to blame when at the end, you live a less satisfying life. How many times have people regretted not doing something or taking a particular action and yet, here they are, five or even ten years later and they still have not taken that action.
‘Between you and every goal that you wish to achieve, there is a series of obstacles, and the bigger the goal, the bigger the obstacles. Your decision to be, have and do something out of the ordinary entails facing difficulties and challenges that are out of the ordinary as well. Sometimes your greatest asset is simply your ability to stay with it longer than anyone else’ – Brian Tracy
It does not matter how slow things may be going, you may have a dream and for the past years, nothing has happened, don’t get frustrated, just begin by taking one small action and go on from there, there is always at least one thing that you can do, no matter how slow the pace may be, it does not matter, just ensure you do not stop. Keep the faith and Keep believing.
