It is what it is; face it and move on.
We live in a challenging world nobody cares about you or what you do. You are the biggest mistake to think you are essential and relevant. The moment you stop challenging yourself, that is the end of you.
Success isn’t for the faint-hearted people; success is for those who pursue greatness. They work hard day and night to achieve their dreams. They are not living in past victories and achievements. All they focus on is now. They worry less about tomorrow because tomorrow owes them nothing. They focus on today because today is all that they have.
We grew up in different life circumstances; all that you had to go through, good or bad, prepared you for what is happening now – the next important step of your life. Go out there, face it. You might fail. Yeah, that’s the point. It would be best if you took your chances. It’s okay to fall; fail fast, fail cheap, and fail smart. Don’t spend years to realise you are failing, don’t spend millions to know it’s not working, and every failure is an opportunity to learn.
Only fools will think they know everything. Talk less, listen more. Knowledge goes to those who seek it. Spend time learning new things, meeting new people and exploring. We all have the same number of hours per day, 24. You choose what do you want to do with yours. You can sit down there complaining and crying about why things are not working on your side. Or you can get up and start fixing them. The difference between losers and winners is the desire to FIX unpleasant situations.
We don’t choose our fate, but at least we can decide how much effort to put into what we believe in. If you lose hope, even God can not help you. You are not ugly; the world is. You are not a loser; the system makes you feel that way. You are an eagle, and your place is in the sky. As long as you believe you are a chicken, you will be one. The decision to change is the toughest one, and you are the only one to make it.
You are a seed to grow. It would help if you buried yourself. Bury yourself from all things that are pulling you back; those voices that tell you can’t do it, friends, who are questioning your abilities, and the family that believes your dream is too big to be achieved. Bury yourself, bury yourself too deep so that you can’t hear those voices, so that you can’t feel that pain of mistrust and judgement so that you can get back again better and stronger.
No one says it is going to be easy. Easy is not for you and me. Easy is for losers, and you are not one of them. You were born to great things, and like all great people, you need to go through a certain process. For you to succeed, you need to respect the process and build a system around it. Don’t focus on the results because even losers get results once in a while. Focus on the process and systems because that is what champions do. It is too cold at the top. It would be best if you always looked for warmth. Do that by maintaining your discipline.
Don’t worry; sometimes disappointments happen; it is what it is; face it and move on. Go to bed, kiss your loved ones, cherish the moment. Tomorrow is another day and an opportunity to start all over again. You better make sure you don’t screw up this time.
