It was Marry Ann Radmacher who said, "Courage doesn't always roar. Sometimes courage is the quiet voice at the end of the day saying, 'I will try again tomorrow'."
For those who refuse to settle for mediocrity, the journey is not always smooth and glamorous; it is normal to encounter rejection, negativity, push backs and sometimes failure. In the solace of our minds we sometimes go through periods when we are feeling discouraged, frustrated, hopeless; when in the middle of the night, tears of uncertainty well up and silently soak through our pillows as we search for answers, not knowing if and how to continue … but at the end of it all, success comes to those who summon the courage to lift themselves up and continue.
It is important to push back and fight these feelings of defeat. Our inner dialogue should be about persisting to the finish line.
There always comes a day when all the sowing and heavy lifting is done and the flowers of your hard work begin to blossom in the bright light of success.
Cherish the relationship with those (maybe not too many) who believe in you and cheer you on; collaborate with those who coach, motivate and inspire you; and most importantly, do not give up! for success comes by digging deep.The price for success is often paid upfront … no credits, no loans here. Whatever doesn't kill you only makes you stronger … go out there and win!
