There will come a time in your life when you feel like giving up on your dream. There will come a time when you feel like throwing in the towel. There also will be a time when you feel like you don’t want to live anymore. That is the moment where you are tested, to see if you’ve what it takes to attain the pinnacle. Life is struggle. I’m yet to see something that’s devoid of risk. Nothing is easy, but nothing is impossible.
The moment you look beyond your limits will be the day you discover the meaning of life. Your business might not be going as you want. The money might not be coming yet.. What will set you aside is when you keep showing up, even when there’s no result. Great entrepreneurs never stop working on their dream. They passed through depression and failure. They once dwelled on self-doubt, but it never stop them. They forge toward their dream like a dauntless lone wolf and at the end, they won. I have seen people who began with nothing and ended up having the world. We see people everyday, start-up with nothing and before they finish, the had the world. They are proof that you can be anything you want to be. The only person stopping you is YOU.
Coca-Cola made only $200 on their first day, it didn’t discourage them. Beyonce was told by critics that she can’t sing, where is she today? Oprah Winfrey is someone who went through hell here on earth, you already know how it ended. It’s not about the thorns on the road, it’s about you being able to walk pass the thorns, those adversities trying to stop you.
I saw a quote the other day and it said; what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger. Stones weren’t made to stop a mountaineer from climbing, they are there to serve as stepping-stones. Our mentality in life determines how far we’ll go in life. One of the numerous mistake we make is when we go through life with the wrong association. You want to be a great business man, yet you keep flocking around people who just want to dwell in mediocrity. You want to be a lion, yet you keep walking with a sheep. Until you change some things, you won’t see a change.
There’s nothing like luck, it doesn’t exist. You and only you make it happen. Don’t fold your arms waiting for manner to fall from above. The real world doesn’t work like that. For there to be an effect, there has to be a cause. You can’t magically become a successful without working for it. It’s not possible to wake up in the morning and find yourself on roses. You have to make them happen through your hard work. Things are not working out. The money might not be coming. It might seem that your work is not yielding any result.. Believe me, what’s happening behind the scene is greater than you. All you need is to keep working, to keep showing up, to keep trying.
You think you’re the most horrible being alive? Take a walk to a mortuary. Visit the hospital.. Look at these beggars on the street. Are you better than them? Sometimes we worry so much on the things we don’t have and end up forgetting the things we have. Until you start appreciating the gift of life, the gift of waking up every morning, you might never truly know the meaning of life. When I had no money years ago, I thought getting money will make me happier. It ended up making me more moody. The ultimate purpose should be impact, impacting positively in a world filled with victimization. That is where fulfilment comes.
Don’t give up on your dream, don’t see yourself as a failure yet. You’re in a training ground, equipping you for what lies ahead. You might not see them now, but they are there. As you journey in this life, be open-minded. Be ready to learn. Keep learning, never stop! Warren Buffet once said; the more you learn, the more you earn. That is so true.. Don’t limit yourself. Learn a little about science, art, religion.. Never you stop learning.. The day you stop is the day you start dying.
The path to success is not a straight line, but what you know, the knowledge you’ve acquire is an edge. Life is tough, but you’re tougher. Inside of you lies a great giant, unleash it. You were not born to be average.. You were born to have the world. Nothing is impossible if you believe. The only limit is the one we impose on ourself.
