"Defeat is simply a signal to press onward." Helen Keller
Things aren't really going according to plan.
You're not happy with the way things are going. You're not pleased with what you're doing. You're not thrilled with the direction your life is taking. You're just not.
And you're not having a lot of fun.
Things could be better, probably a whole lot better. But they're not. You could be doing better, probably a good bit better. But you're not. You have tried just about everything you can think of, but nothing seems to work. You're starting to run out of ideas. You're running low on energy. You're tired of banging your head against the wall and getting nothing in return.
Something's got to give.
"It always seems impossible until it's done." Nelson Mandela
Let's be honest; life can be difficult. Life can be trying. Life can test you right to your limits... and beyond. When you're laying it all on the line, you want to see progress. You want to see positive results. You want to move in a positive direction. Yet sometimes, in spite of giving it all that you've got, the positive you seek eludes you.
And it hurts. It hurts a lot.
Sometimes things don't work out as planned. Sometimes things do not turn out the way you hoped. Sometimes you fall short of your goals and aspirations.
And it really hurts. When you're giving it all that you've got, failure is one bitter pill to swallow.
"Edison failed 10,000 times before he made the electric light. Do not be discouraged if you fail a few times." Napoleon Hill
But all is not lost. There is sunshine beyond the clouds; light behind the darkness. Just because what you're doing right now isn't working, that doesn't mean it won't work. It just means that it's not working the way you're doing it.
Instead of continuing to replicate the same steps, making the same mistakes, why not make some changes in what you're doing - and how you're doing it? Then make some more changes. And keep tweaking and fine tuning until things turn around.
Stay positive, even when things aren't so rosy. Stay focused, even when you're knocked off track. And keep getting better. Let's face it; if it was easy, someone would have already done it. And you wouldn't have the chance to make something happen.
"Just keep going. Everybody gets better if they keep at it." Ted Williams
The world's greatest innovations and discoveries evolved from failure and disappointment. That's right; the best of the very best overcame long odds and difficult struggles before they attained success. These winners faced the same obstacles you are facing. They endured the same tough times you are experiencing. And they suffered the same defeat and desperation. But they never allowed failure to have the final word.
Instead of giving in, they gave it all that they had. And they gave some more. They kept working, kept moving and kept believing until they got it right. And so must you.
I know it sometimes feels like your goals and dreams are a million miles away. But why not take a lesson from history's greatest success stories? And refuse to give up or give in, even when all appears lost.
You've got to be stronger than the problems you encounter. You've got to be tougher than the troubles you face. You've got to be whatever you need to be.
If you're willing to work - and keep working, if you're willing to look - and keep looking, if you're willing to do whatever it takes to win - and keep getting better each and every day, you'll find a way that works.
And find a way to make all of your seemingly unattainable, unreachable, almost impossible dreams come true.
The Bottom Line: When something's got to give, make sure you give even more.
