In many aspects and parts of our life, we find ourselves cornered, cornered in our own box… Hiding from what is happening outside.. Sometimes we would be afraid; afraid from what will happen next… and hoping that by closing our eyes, all of this will just go or fade away… And then reality teach us that some things won’t just vanish if we ignore them, and that eventually we will need to face the music, and face our demons, and we will have one choice, either we win or they do…
I have been in lots of situations myself that I felt that the world is going to end, reached so low, that I couldn’t see the light anymore… But at that particular moment, I REALIZED THAT I DON’T DESERVE THAT… and therefore I SHOULDN’T ACCEPT IT… And so I fought my way out of my problems… and Guess what! Nothing last forever, even problems… At some point things will just move on, you just need to wait for the storm to pass…
So this week’s tip, is about Striving for Excellence, and Not Accepting LESS… You Deserve to be treated right, and you shouldn’t accept it any other way, You Deserve to be Respected and You Shouldn’t accept Not to… and the List goes on and on… YOU DESERVE WHAT YOU ACCEPT… So Don’t Accept Failure… Don’t Accept Mediocrity… And Don’t Ever Accept someone to put you down…
And I believe the best speech you can read is the one done by ROCKY Balboa to his son!
Let me tell you something you already know. The world ain’t all sunshine and rainbows. It’s a very mean and nasty place and I don’t care how tough you are it will beat you to your knees and keep you there permanently if you let it. You, me, or nobody is gonna hit as hard as life. But it ain’t about how hard ya hit. It’s about how hard you can get it and keep moving forward. How much you can take and keep moving forward. That’s how winning is done! Now if you know what you’re worth then go out and get what you’re worth. But ya gotta be willing to take the hits, and not pointing fingers saying you ain’t where you wanna be because of him, or her, or anybody! Cowards do that and that ain’t you! You’re better than that.
Enjoy your Week!
