Goals are to us as fuel to an ignition. It lights our flame. It gives us something to aim for while we live our lives. It may not always be smooth sailing for there will always be bumps on the road. Life will always hand us a few disappointments here or there. We may feel discouraged with all the stumbles and falls, but we have to keep going. We have to keep striving for our goals and objectives.
If things were handed to you, how would you appreciate them? How would you make the most out of them if you did not work hard enough to achieve them? You probably would not have learned anything from them. Most likely you remained in the same spot and without growth.
We have to keep going even when it seems so hard. As Confucius once said “When it is obvious that the goals cannot be reached, don’t adjust the goals, adjust the action steps.” Change your plan. Find another route to your desired destination. Life is full of obstacles, heartaches, disturbances. Things we deal with daily that make us feel hopeless. We encounter all kinds of people that are insolent, unprofessional, egotistic or that might take advantage of our caring nature.
You have to stay strong. Don’t let them defeat you! Don’t listen to anyone’s voice but your own. The same way we can choose our reaction to counterattack we can choose the reaction to not be bothered with. Some people just want to press our buttons, but our peace of mind is far greater! Keep going, it is your Journey!
