You have many challenges in life. Some you will overcome, some you simply will not be able to.
These latter challenges will thwart you because of either of 5 reasons:
- you don’t have the skill to overcome them
- you don’t have the willpower to overcome them
- The Universe got in the way
- Some things are meant to be (must be that “Universe” again)
- You give up
For most of us, 1. 2. & 5. are the relevant ones, I will talk about 3. & 4. later.
If you do want to overcome your challenges, then point 1. is salvageable. People with the will to overcome obstacles will get it together.
You may need help, however if you have the “will” to overcome then you will seek out all options to do so. And that will set you apart from others.
‘The Art of getting it together’ emanates from your very own Willpower.
Here are two examples:
The power of frustration … “I’ve had enough, I won’t put up with this anymore”
The power of wanting more out of your life … “I can do better”
When you decide to initiate your Willpower, You begin to turn things around.
Skills can be learned. You may not have them at the moment however someone who does have them can teach you. Or, you make the extra effort to learn them yourself. I’ve certainly been in both categories … and still am.
When you don’t have the willpower [or decide not to use it],then you are at the mercy of whatever comes your way. Some will flow with this and say “what the heck” or “I’m in the flow” (of whatever) AND some will simply get swept away (and complain immeasurably).
This is where The Universe does play a huge part ….. you have the power of Choice. You choose to take positive action or not. I can only suggest that you try the positive and inject some Willpower.
To give credit where it’s due, those who “give up” have in the most part, at least initially tried. They have had crack and that’s worthy.
If this is you, then more than likely your willpower has run out of steam or you have lacked support. The good news for you is that there is a glimmer of hope. In fact there is a rainbow of hope.
When you read this, do something for me. Reach out. You need a confidence boost, a shot of energy, an embrace of hope. There is someone out there who will support you through this. Reach out for the rainbow …. all the colours thereof exemplify the amount of options open to you.
Giving up is a poor option though I can understand that frustration plays huge in your life. It gets the better of me at times.
So, what is the answer?
When I have a target, goal, dream, desire that IS strong enough, emotional enough and important enough, I will work to see it through.
The time frame isn’t that important, however the “will” to get it done, is ….. because it’s that important.
You can do the same, I am sure.
