Life is tough and you will have ups and downs. It’s all a part of life and it is what you do during those moments that define you. You can either sink or swim. Looking for excuses and an easy way out will come back to haunt you. Trying to find a shortcut to edge your way around will result in nowhere.
Be in it for the long term and not for the short term pleasures. You have the ability today to decide how you want the rest of the year to look like. Where you are today is a result from all the choices you have made to this point. Winner’s take full responsibility for where they are in life no matter what is thrown at them. Do not look at other people to blame as you control your own destiny. There are plenty of victims in this weak water down society in which we live in today. You can take the easy way by looking for a shortcut to pass your exam, get to your fitness goal, hit your financial goals for the year, but the only person you are cheating is yourself. Your self-worth and confidence will soar every time you accomplish a big goal knowing you put your blood, sweat, and tears into it. No more shortcuts or quick fixes. There is no magic pill.
Do something each day that you know will benefit you but you do not feel like doing. Whatever in your mind sucks, take action on it. Your fears will diminish when you take action upon them. Your fears will grow by sitting back waiting for the right time or opportunity to strike you. The right time is now, today! Less thinking and more doing. Action, action, action will get you to your target. Your desire for success must outweigh any fear of failure.
