"Promise yourself to be so strong that nothing can disturb your peace of mind." John Wooden
People, things and circumstances can sometimes get you down.
People can let you down. Things can drag you down. Circumstances can pull you down. Instead of staying on track, you lose control. You lose your bearings. You lose your focus. You lose your intensity.
You get distracted, sidetracked and diverted. You get knocked off course, off balance and off center. Instead of making things happen, things happen to you. After awhile, you stop believing you have what it takes. And start believing you're not good enough, smart enough or lucky enough to get where you've always dreamed of going.
Sometimes you pull yourself out of the funk - and get back in the game. And sometimes you quit. You quit on life. You quit on people. You quit on yourself.
And down you go.
"The most beautiful things in the universe are the starry heavens above us and the feeling of duty within us." Indian Proverb
Life's path is oftentimes littered with undesirable potholes. Things you wish you didn't have to deal with, decisions you wish you didn't have to make. There are problems and troubles and pressures that get in your way - and make life more difficult than it needs to be.
How do you rise above the noise? How do you rise above the clutter? How do you rise to the challenge and start living your life with purpose, with passion and focus? How do you get above - and stay above - all of the things trying to get you down?
"Above the cloud with its shadow is the star with its light." Victor Hugo
Just like a good breeze can clear the skies, you need to blow away the dark clouds that surround you - and clear your mind. You need to open up and see the sun again. See your possibilities again. See the best of life once again. See what you could be. What you should be. What you would be - if you'd just go do it.
Focus on what you need to do. Zero in on where you want to go. Concentrate all of your energy and effort on all of the wonderful things you are destined to accomplish in your lifetime. And the clouds will disappear.
"We must have perseverance and above all confidence in ourselves. We must believe that we are gifted for something and that this thing must be attained." Marie Curie
Troubling times, objectionable people and unsettling circumstances can definitely get under your skin if you let them. But that's the key right there. Don't let them. Stay out of the muck. Don't sink to other's levels. Don't allow little things to get under your skin. Take on a Teflon-like resilience where nothing bad can stick to you. And stick to your guns.
Do what you want to do. Be what you want to be. Go where you want to go. Rise above the storm. Rise above your troubles. Rise above anything or anyone in your way. Be bigger. Be better. Be braver than ever before. And go have some fun.
Power Pointer: Above all things; be true to yourself. And become the person you were born to be.
