Don’t Be Ashamed Of Your Struggle

Everyone struggles. It doesn’t matter who you are or what your current status is in life, everyone struggles with something. Struggle is not an indication of worth or ability; it’s a sign of active engagement toward a worthwhile cause.

Struggle comes standard issue with life. No one gets out of life alive, and no one accomplishes their destiny or achieves their dream without struggle.

Struggle isn’t a reflection of what you don’t have; it’s a reflection of your determination to get what’s yours at all cost. Struggle is the evidence that you’re trying.

To be ashamed of your struggle is to self sabotage your own success. Shame is a self imposed. Stop it. Don’t allow societal pressure to dictate your self worth. Don’t allow struggle to try and convince you you’re not capable, or it will never happen for you.

Look yourself in the mirror and ask yourself

1. Am I giving it my all?
2. Is this the best I can do?

If the answer is “YES,” welcome to the club. You made it. Entrance fee paid! Keep Pushing you’re almost there!

If your answer is “NO,” stop blaming everyone else. Don’t play the victim; it’s not becoming. Fess up to laziness, lack of discipline, wrong thinking, overeating, whining, complaining; whatever your case may be. Correct it. Rise above it. And get on with it!

Correct it. Rise above it. And get on with it!

Don’t spend one more second in what you don’t want. Don’t waste anymore energy on justifying ‘what,’ or ‘why,’ just implement the necessary change and move on!

Don’t be ashamed of your struggle. To struggle is to be human. But make sure you do something with yours. Don’t struggle just to struggle; just for the story. Turn your struggle into success, into an accomplishment that can inspire others.

Make something happen out this mess you find yourself in. It’s the only way to shut your critic(s) up. It’s the only way to finally prove to yourself “I got this!”

“You Didn’t Quit; You Were Rescued.”

Someone Needs To Hear This!!

“You didn’t quit; you were rescued.”

You’ve been beating yourself for something you lost – A job, a business, a relationship, a dream that didn’t go right.

You feel like you fell short; that you quit on what you so once loved. But Life would say to you, “You didn’t quit; you were rescued!”

There’s a reason you are no longer there; a reason you can’t fully understand yet.

You were snatched from a way that was about to turn ugly. You were spared just in the nick of time! Trust where you’re at. It’s exactly where you’re supposed to be!!

You didn’t quit; you were rescued!
