The only way for you not to back off is to keep moving forward.
I know, this may sound like a phone call, but it’s important not to give yourself permission to give up when something does not work the way you want.
We can of course say: OK, I take a break but: restart and always make this step forward that lead you to your dreams and goals.
For my part, right now I am all over the place and I know that I am late in relation to the dated goals that I set up for myself. There may be ups and downs, but I know that if I let myself go, I can be lazy.
I am not the kind of person who wants to be in that average, where so many People let Life choose for them. I decided to have this mindset of the 2% of the population. So if I take a step that leads nowhere, I step forward and forward. The truth is that it is not too difficult to move one step at a time. I build up my castle stone by stone, knowing that small efforts repeatedly overcome any undertaking and make a huge difference. And since I chose to live according to “Intentions «and Not according to “the methods”….
I have also decided not to let neither disappointments nor negative thoughts schedule my life. I watch them like a cat is watching a mouse. I am the captain of my life!!! my goals are clear, sharpened, accurate.
But if you’re scattered, like a sculptor who starts a work and changes ideas every 15 minutes, what do you think the result will be?
But knowledge does not apply itself. So be aware of your thoughts because they are the ones that shape your life. You become what you think.
Here is one of my memories that I cherish: During one of my trip in Argentina a few years ago I found myself one day in the middle of a semi desert, alone, with a backpack of 22 Kgs. What a bad situation. Someone told me that I had to walk 6, 2 miles to catch a bus that would leave 5 hours later and take me to a city which would allow me to sleep in a decent place and eat. I felt horrible, but I did not let this state of despair afflict me, on the contrary, I focused on a happy moment of my life, I thought about my chance to have a family who love me. An hour later, a car stopped by at my height, took me and welcomed me at their place for 4 days. I could never forget those moments.
When you have a negative thought that comes to your mind, it is up to you to replace it with a positive thought. Be that cat at The Lookout! Watch yourself and become aware of your emotions.
Today I am like the rain that erodes the mountains, the ant that eat a tiger, and the star that illuminates the earth. Nor do I allow that my success of yesterday falls to-day in a feeling of self-sufficiency, because it is the chief foundation of failure.
I am not a sheep, I am a lion and I refuse to speak, to walk and to sleep with the sheep. I always take a step forward because I am committed to myself and also to all those people who rely on me and trust me to achieve the goals they have set for themselves. We set up the steps of success together with these values of integrity, transparency, and strong human relationships.
Have a great week 🙂
