If You Can’t Find A Way, Make Your Own Way

As the saying goes, “Do not give up, the beginning is always the hardest.” Don’t give up just because it is hard to do. Hard is not impossible.

Philip Sidney said, “Either I will find a way, or I will make one.” Yes, if you can’t find a way forward, make your own way. Follow your own path. Do not give up. You are almost there. You have done it before. This time, with hard work, you can create your own world. You can create your own life. Because no one is going to create your life for you. Commit yourself to your growth and development. Work on yourself. Because if you are not growing, your life is not growing.

We are all growing. We are all learning. Learning is a journey. Because it doesn’t happen overnight. It takes time to learn something new. It takes time to learn about who we really are. And it takes courage to do it. It takes courage to live, to grow, to change, to face our fears.

“If you can see it, if you can feel it, you can change it.”

Everything takes courage to do. As Annie Dillard once said, “You can’t test courage cautiously.” If you want to test your courage, you must get out of your comfort zone. You can’t test your courage in your comfort zone. To do that, you must get out. And to do that, you must start something new. You must change your thoughts. Because if you can change your thoughts, you can change your life. Do it for you. Do it for yourself. No one is going to change your life for you. If you can see it, if you feel it, you can change it. Why not today?
