We all face challenges in our daily lives.
Some challenges are harder than others. I believe it’s when we’re faced with the harder challenges that we see who we really are.
It is easy to be nice, polite, and easy going while things are going great for you. How long will that last though?
For all you know, the world may come crashing down tomorrow. It is in these moments that it’s hard to be nice, polite, and easy going. This is where we find our true selves.
This is the place where I currently am.
It feels like my world is going to crumble.
It feels like I have hit this massive brick wall that just won’t let me through. This wall has no door or windows either. It also stretches on for miles. Yet, what I want lies behind the wall.
It’s a massive force that’s stopping me from getting what I want. There’s no way around it. So, there’s only one way to get to my objective, and that’s to smash through it indefinitely.
There is no way I’m going to lose to some brick wall. No, I decide what I achieve and what I do not achieve.
If there is something I want, then I need to go through each wall that blocks the path of the reward I seek.
As I said, I am currently in front of this massive wall. This particular one might be one of the bigger one’s that I’ve faced in my life.
I’ll be honest, it’s been kicking my butt. However, I did not let that stop me today and I will not let it stop me in the future.
Today was my running and exercise day. This wall made it incredibly difficult to find the motivation to go out and do these things. Thus, it created a mini wall for myself to pass through.
I want to emphasize that I really did not want to exercise today. I just wanted to lay down in bed and sulk, if I’m being honest. I know though that if I do that, then I won’t be any closer to breaking through that bigger wall.
So, I strapped on my shoes, did my stretches, and I ran straight that mini wall. I have to say, I felt quite a bit better after I did so. It felt like a tiny little win.
With that small victory, I have made the path clear to take on this bigger wall. I know that I will break through this wall somehow. Like I said, I am not going to let a wall stop me from achieving the life that I want to create for myself and my son.
This is how I picture my harder struggles. Each struggle is just a wall. There’s nothing scary about it. It is just going to take a little bit of work to get through it. Once you’re through it, you have a nice long path to enjoy before you hit the next wall. Who knows, I may find a major key on how to reach my big goals on the path leading to the next wall.
One thing is for certain though, there will always be another wall. We as a society are always trying to improve ourselves.
With each improvement we hit walls such as the one I have described. If you turn around and look behind you, then you’ll see the hundreds of other walls that you have smashed through.
This is evidence that you can break through your current wall, no matter how big, tough, or wide it is. You can do it, and I want you to keep trying. You are not alone. If encouragement is what you need then leave a comment and I would love to provide some.
My point is to not let anything stop you from make your dreams and goals a reality. The moment you stop trying to push past that wall is the moment you abandon your dreams.
This is how regret happens, and that might just be the worst feeling in the world.
No, stay motivated and keep on pushing forward. Know you’re not alone and that even if you don’t have someone next to you to encourage you, that you at least have myself thinking about you.
Bruce lee once said, “Do not pray for an easy life, pray for the strength to endure a difficult one”. Be strong and break through the wall that is your difficulty.
