You can only have three choices or approaches that you can take in life:
Both the first two options, which are giving up and giving in are the most common options that people take.What they do is that they tell themselves things like "It's too hard/I can't do it/I'm too stupid, I'm too ____ (insert excuse of choice here)" or a combination of that. These are the people who choose to let go of their visions, dreams, ideals, drives, hopes and whatever is and was meaningful to them because of setbacks, difficulties, boringness/unexcitement or whatever the reason is.
They chose to let go. They chose to let their eyes glaze over, and zonk out. They chose to sleep in. They chose to not do anything to bring them closer to their dreams. They chose to bury their hopes.
The other group of people, are the people who never say die.They may fall occasionally. They may cry in anguish amidst the pain, but they press on. They fight and they press in and they push forward and they push forward some more. They don't give up. They are relentless. They stay the course until they reach where they planned to. They stay until they finish.
I'd like to invite you pick up this new characteristic of being relentless. What www.dictionary.com defines being relentless as:
So that means that you do not relent, you do not yield, you are strict and harsh and hard and unending. You don't give up on yourself, you don't give up on your dreams, you don't give up on your hope.
You don't give up.
You hold fast to what you believe in, you hold fast to your truths and dreams. Even if you fall today, right now, and you bleed or you cry. Once you're done bleeding and crying, you pick yourself up, clean your wounds and dry your eyes, and you press on in again, towards your dream.
Every step matters. Do it right now. Take steps towards your dreams. It doesn't matter if it's just one step. Or if it's just one step an hour. As long as you keep pressing in. You are unstoppable. You are relentless.
It's all within you already, you've got to give it your 100%. Giving your 100% means to hold nothing back. You're letting go the floodgates and you're overrunning your tasks, your challenges, your enemies. You're pushing your boundaries. You're pressing close to fatigue.You fear you will faint or die before you get there, but you won't die or faint.
You know what? You have all it takes. You will do it. You will get there. You are relentless.
