Despite Blood, Sweat, and Tears, do not Give Up on Yourself

Despite Blood, Sweat, and Tears, do not Give Up on Yourself
You need to do the common things uncommonly well to succeed in anything.

If you do not Fight for what you want now, you will fight against what you don’t want later. To gain anything substantial in life you have to do something that requires you to go an extra mile. To win a marathon race you have to undergo thorough training, disciplined lifestyle and strategize to win. You have to change and set your mindset to achieve and win.

Don’t always blame people, events and circumstances for your failures and position. The greatest level of warfare is when you truly confront yourself in battle. The greatest person on earth is that who conquers himself, Conquers his fear, position and perception. He breaks the status quo, takes risk and fights for his dreams, his destiny. He knows no defeat, He never quits.

The people who wish that you remain in your low position or even retrogress are more than the fans of Manchester united in the whole universe. The people waiting for your downfall are more than those waiting for Christ to return. Don’t be a people pleaser and dare not be affected by those who are not for you. As long as your heart and mind are set towards your greatness, you are on track. It’s not about what they say about you but what you say about yourself. The perception you have about you determines their reception towards you. You will not be defeated by what they say about you, you will be defeated by what you say about you.

Most people live a life of timidity, procrastination and quitting. They have very weird dreams but never commit to pursue it. If you listen to their plans they amaze you with their aspirations but they never take action. The next step after dreaming is taking action to pursue it. There will be ups and downs, people will not support you, and resources may not be favorable but dare not quit. If you quit now, what were you even fighting for. You have to put up the victor attitude and face your fears. It’s hard to beat a person who never gives up. Keep getting up until you get that breakthrough.

Never stop believing in yourself and never stop fighting for your dreams because if you don’t, who will?

Sometimes life can be tough, I know sometimes life can wear you down, but if you just stick it out…Even if you don’t get the result, the character you show will be your reward. The fighting spirit you develop will be the reward. And it will serve you well, for the rest of your life.

Fight for what you want now, or fight against what you don’t want later! you choose!

Don’t you DARE quit. Don’t you DARE settle. Don’t you DARE back down.

When the tough moments come, never forget, you are in that moment, writing your legacy.

In that tough moment you are setting the standard for your character.

Sometimes in life we experience divine delays depending on the size of our dream. If yours is to own a personal jet, this might not happen overnight compared to purchasing a pizza for lunch. The bigger the dream the great the urge for patience and perseverance. Do not compare your moment of waiting with your peers. We are on different paths with different destinies.

IMPOSSICANT is a word derived from the English words impossible and can’t(can not). It describes the impossible situation that cannot be solved. POSSICAN is derived from Possible and Can. It is the sure hope that something is possible and can be done. We should be people of POSSICANS and enemies of IMPOSSICANTS if at all we have to pursue our dreams and destinies. Don’t quit because a situation has shown you one reason why it is not possible, show it ten reasons why it is possible. Dare not quit.

When storms of life come your way, you gotta put up a life jacket and enjoy the adventure on the waves. Not all storms come to disrupt your life, some come to clear your path. Do not quit.

Never give up. There are always tough times, regardless of what you do in anything in life. Be able to push through those times and maintain your ultimate goal. It is yours for the asking and yours for the fighting.

Eliud kipchoge won the 2018 berlin marathon with his personal best time and broke the world marathon. At some point his shoe soles came out but this did not stop him from pursuing his goal. He had a reason to quit because of the pain on his feet but he focused on the main thing, the price ahead not the current pain. Quitting was not an option for Eliud.

When you can’t control what’s happening, challenge yourself to control the way you respond to what’s happening. That’s where your power is. Take up the leadership of your life and let God guide you. Set clear goals and pursue them. The secret of getting ahead is getting started. Some of the people who are jobless are a result of you not starting your business.

Yesterday is not ours to recover, but tomorrow is ours to win or lose. If we master today and give it our best, put our best foot forward, we shall overcome all odds and rise to greatness.

Replace the word can’t with can. Know that you can, believe that you can, and know with ALL of your heart that you will. You will succeed in spite of any obstacles that may try to hinder you. There’s so much power in having a positive attitude, positive mindset, and positive outlook.

Despite blood, sweat, and tears, do not give up on yourself. You are worth the fight for a brighter future. Stay on track and don’t look back, you are headed to a flourishing finish.
