Stay passionate about what’s been put in your heart. All setbacks means you’re one step closer to seeing the dream come to pass – Joel Osteen.
I can’t even begin to list the setbacks I’ve faced while on my journey to self-discovery, the most recent almost shattering me to pieces. It’s really crazy, I must add.
But like they say, when something bad happens to you, you have three options on how to deal with it. You can either let it define you, let it destroy you or you can let it strengthen you. (or you can also learn from it and move on).
Certain awful things happen, no matter how careful or well-calculated you think you have been, heck, that’s life for you!
Setbacks, failures, mistakes, disappointment, do occur, so what are you going to do about it. Let it destroy you? Let it consume you? You have better options than that.
Life is not for the faint of heart, lol. You have to be mentally, emotionally and physically strong to face all that will be dealt to you inorder to come out a victor!
Setbacks are going to happen, you have to build yourself up for it. Be resilient. Be determined. Be focused. Expect great things from yourself.
Famous supermodel and America’s got talent judge, Heidi Klum once said I am someone who always gets up again, even if there are setbacks. I have a survivor instinct. I’m not sure where it comes from, but probably from all the little things that makes you into who you are.
You can be like that too, getting up always despite setbacks. Fall, but don’t remain on the ground, pick yourself up and continue on your life’s journey stronger.
For me, I am learning not to let setbacks destroy or define me. Some can hit you so hard, that you start doubting your entire existence but for all those times, the comeback was amazing because I thought about why it was happening to me and why/how I got there in the first place and what I’m still yet to achieve.
That always catapults me from my setback position, gives me fresh insight that indeed my dreams are almost fulfilled; way closer than farther plus a new opportunity to do better, be better.
And when it hits again, I come back with more fire to weather the storm.
Rise like a Phoenix and be the motivation you need. There is nothing as powerful as a made up mind.
As you step out on this beautiful day, we have been blessed with, remember that you are capable, you are strong and you definitely can handle everything that will be thrown at you.
Tough times don’t last, but tough people do. Focus on your passion and you will be fine.
Do have yourselves a great day!
Love Always… M.
