The world today has managed to convince us that results are obtained easily, and with little to no work. If you are not seeing results quickly, be it in business, relationships, or anything else, then you must be doing something wrong.
This way of seeing things couldn’t be further from the truth. Everything that is worth going after will require work, and time to achieve.
You are free to go about life any way that you want to, but do not be afraid to keep going when it gets hard. If you know in your heart that this is what you are meant to do, and if it feels right then you have no other choice but to keep going.
Listen to the advice you receive from the people around you, but also analyze them, because it is not them who will need to support the consequences. You are the only one responsible for the things you do or don’t do.
The way they turn out will not always be in your control, but you will still need to make the best of them. Making the best doesn’t mean that you will be able to turn them into successes, but rather that you will manage to build your future on the remains of the failures.
There will be many dead ends in your life, and when that happens, all that is left to do is back up and try another direction. If you are afraid to turn around, you will be stuck forever. Fight for what you believe in, but if it turns out to be wrong, don’t be afraid to change direction.
At times, it feels like you don’t want to do anything. You just want to relax and unwind. There is nothing wrong with that unless it goes on forever. It’s natural to get tired sometimes. Nobody is able to keep going without any rest, but this doesn’t stop you from always pushing.
You are not unbreakable, and no amount of perseverance and determination will change. When the energy ends and you find yourself looking for rest, it is time to have a conversation with yourself. No one can change your way of action except you, but to do it, you must first understand that the way you’ve been acting is not good for you.
Before you break down, there will be signs on the way. They are there to make you aware that something is wrong with the way you are doing things. Due to your focus on what needs to be done, you will ignore many of them, but it’s enough to see one and then your situation becomes clear.
The amount of responsibility that has been dumped on you is far more than what would allow you to function optimally. Right now, all you do is run from one fire to another, trying to put them out, but with no success.
There is no clarity in your actions because it’s physically impossible to do what you are required to do, though you try. It is fine to want rest and relaxation. You are allowed to take some time away from responsibilities. The time spent away will provide clarity, strength, and newfound energy.
