Words of Encouragement

"Other people and things may stop you temporarily. Only you can do it permanently"

I really believe that there are people whose sole purpose on the earth is to push other people to the edge just to help the latter figure out if they really wanted what they were aiming for in the first place.

People may knock you down verbally but you have the option, the choice to disregard their negativity and remain confident. A broken leg can put a halt to your running but only until it is healed... if running is what you want to do. A severe weather event can crush your residence, but not your spirit if you do not let it. Don't let an outside event diminish your passion.

When someone or something seems to be sabotaging me in some way- I choose to be grateful- because it either causes me to realize how important my goal is to me and I push harder or, equally as valuable, it makes me reevaluate my goal and my plan to achieve it in light of the new challenge. Achievement of an unchallenged goal may be a wonderful success but will not help you to achieve other goals. Appreciate both successes.
