Life has its ups and downs and many curve balls are thrown in the way as we go along. There are times we feel like giving up, sometimes we give up before we even try just because of the perceived enormity of what is ahead and unfortunately this can happen just as we are about to make a breakthrough.

As long as you are alive anything is possible, even if you get knocked down by life’s many challenges you can try, try and try again. A dead person does not have this option so being alive is a potential for success. Success or excellence in an area takes time, I realize in this microwave era with instant access to many things we would like things to work out in lightning speed and indeed it seems to happen for some people that way but be realistic in your pursuits, take the time to learn and make mistakes and keep on keeping on till you finally succeed. Michael Jordan one of the world’s best basketball players of all time attributed his success to his many failures. Digging deep and refusing to throw in the towel makes success even sweeter.

You are stronger than you think and a setback should not stop you from reaching for greater heights or realizing your goals. Take inspiration from people who have succeeded before you, if they can do it so can you , even if it’s just one individual who has done it, it’s one more than needed to keep you on track. In your life there will be many naysayers and dream killers that will contribute to your anxiety but the key is this “believe in your dreams” guard it jealously, don’t let anyone redefine it for you and tell you what you want to achieve is not possible.

Prove your doubts and doubters wrong. Say to yourself, I can and I will, the only time you fail is when you give up, don’t sell yourself short. Surround yourself with the people who love you and let them inspire you to persist and keep on. Unknown to you, you could actually be a heartbeat away from what you most desire so you owe it to yourself never to give up. When all is said and done, you resilience will become an inspiration to many others, who knows what mountain someone else will conquer just because you never gave up.
