Push yourself, because no one else is going to do it for you.
Let’s face it: we have all had our fair share of failures. Some failures often lead to disappointment, which in turn saps us of all motivation to get out of bed the following morning. A sense of gloominess arrests our inherent desire to continuously improve upon ourselves. Some of us may even have completely given up on our goals and settled for something far less than what we deserve. On the other hand, most of us subconsciously fall into the habit of expecting someone else to reignite our lost motivation. While it may happen in some rare cases, the exception can never be the rule.
Life is hard; it is definitely not a bed of roses. That said, it is okay to trip and fall, so long as you know how to pick yourself back up and keep walking down the chosen path. Remember, to err is human. Failures need to be accepted and embraced as part and parcel of life. However, it is even more important to learn how to pick up the pieces and regain our lost confidence.
We need to keep at it, no matter what. This will automatically happen once we acknowledge the fact that nobody is going to fulfill our dreams for us. The more you expect or even wait for someone else to do it on your part, the more vulnerable you become to repeating your failures. You need to do that on our own. You need to push yourself to make sure that you do not end up losing sight of your lofty goals. As someone once rightly said – and this quote is often (erroneously?) attributed to yoga teacher Rhyanna Watson – “Push yourself, because no one else is going to do it for you.”
