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?

Is Hard Work Enough To Win

What separates high achievers from others is hard work. As Sam Ewing once said, “Hard work sportlights the character of people: some turn up their sleeves, some turn up their noses, and some don’t turn up at all.” You can’t succeed without hard work. The question is, “Are you giving your best?”

Remember that to get the best, you must give the best. And you can’t give the best if you don’t know what you are good at. To know what you are good at, you must assess yourself. You must develop the ability to assess yourself. You must find out what you are not good at, what you are really good at, and you must turn your weaknesses into your power.

Whatever you are doing right now, no matter how difficult, do not give up. As Thomas Muller once remarked, “All things are difficult before they are easy.” If what you are doing right now is not going according to your plan, keep doing it. It will get better. You will win if you don’t give up. Helen Rowland said, “You will never win if you never begin.” You have what it takes to change your life. Don’t talk yourself out of it. Be hopeful. Thomas Fuller said, “Great hopes make great men.” Be happy. Keep pursuing your dreams. That is why you are here.
