“Don’t listen to what anybody says except the people who encourage you. If it’s what you want to do and it’s within yourself, then keep going and try to do it for the rest of your life.”– Jake Gyllenhaal
Giving up when you are faced with obstacles is never the solution. Obstacles are often only temporary roadblocks along our journey. For the most part, they are nothing more than interpretations that we make about people, events, ourselves and circumstances.
Moreover, obstacles are there to teach us great lessons and help us to better understand our situation, others, ourselves, and the world around us.
The funny thing about life is that it always seems to present us with innumerable challenges and problems on a daily basis.
It throws left hooks when we were expecting right ones. It even presents us with seemingly awful surprises that we weren’t expecting. And it bloats us with unresourceful emotions that tend to tie us down to a life of mediocrity and unhappiness.
Despite all this, it is not so much what happens to us that actually makes a difference. It is rather what we do with what happens to us that determines where we will end up, what we will have, and how we will be transformed by our experiences.
Remember, what you focus on becomes your reality. If you are constantly searching for problems and focusing on the things that you do not want. Then that is all you will perceive within your reality.
However, on the other hand, if all you are searching for are answers, solutions, and opportunities. Then you will always be turning lemons into lemonade.
You must effectively teach yourself to search for the seeds of opportunity in every apparent problem that crosses your path. By undertaking this deductive process, you will create a powerful habit that will allow you to spot what others simply fail to notice.
Take the Bull by the Horns and Never Give Up. Confront your problem directly without “beating about the bush”. Focus on your desires, have faith and believe that with perseverance you can conquer your fear of failure.
I would encourage you to take the Bull by the Horns and Never Give Up. Learn to cultivate a mindset of determination that will help you to persist through the toughest of challenges along your journey towards the attainment of your goals and objectives.
As a final thought, I’d thought I leave you with a quote by Simon Sinek, he wrote: “Don’t quit. Never give up trying to build the world you can see, even if others can’t see it. Listen to your drum and your drum only. It’s the one that makes the sweetest sound.”
