What Journey Are You On
"We are made to persist. That's how we find out who we are." - Tobias Wolff
Anything we do in life is going to have some level of resistance. That resistance comes in many forms. It will create obstacles in front of us as we attempt to reach a goal, from reaching an accomplishment.
Think of those mundane activities we do such as driving to work each morning. Traffic frustration can be an obstacle to overcome in getting to your place of work. Or maybe it is the check out line at the grocery store with a long slow moving line.
There are also bigger, more important obstacles in life we have to overcome.
A job advancement that you might be struggling to grab hold of. It could be a relationship issue with a loved one. Even greater it could be a death in the family.
There are many and numerous major life events we encounter. Yet everyone of these obstacles represent opportunities to assess and find new paths in our life.
To find motivation in order to overcome the obstacles we face is a part of the process; your particular journey. And perseverance is key to continuing on that journey..never give up, never give up.
The journey may change, just don't give up on the journey. Overcome those things in life that will try to keep you from achieving your own brand of greatness.
Stay inspired my friends!
