Encouragement for a quitter
Do you often think of yourself as a quitter? Do you tend to quit early and easily? If so, why is that? ..... Is it because you fear that the weight of disappointment might overwhelm you later? Or you want to escape from the pressure coming from opposing voices?
Life is all about choices. We make choices all the time whether we are aware of it or not. Life is about making choices. It's about setting our priorities and communicate that through our actions. A few days ago, I heard an inspiring statement from a Japanese soap opera. It says, "you would know whether something is doable or not ONLY IF you've done it." I can't agree more! If you are certain about where you want to go, you quit early then you will never get there. As to the discouraging attitudes or words from others, sometimes, I just think that we need to learn to train our hearts and ears so that we can filter them out. Noise belong to the background, doesn't it? We might have to stay in a noisy room for a little longer, but we don't have to pay attention to it the whole time and let it stop us from doing what we should be doing. After all, like Tony Robbins says "where focus goes, energy flows". Who would devote his/her energy to listening to noise?! It's such a waste of time!
"Don't let what you cannot do interfere with what you can do." (~ John Wooden) Do you rather have a life of 'what-if' than a life of 'oh-wells'? Be encouraged. Life is full of opportunities. Your life is.
