3. You Have Two Choices – Give Up or Go On!
One thing that you will always find on the path to great things is the constant bumps of discouragements and tough situations, you probably would have discovered that it is never a smooth ride to achievement. And sometimes it gets so difficult that you begin to contemplate if it is worth fighting for.
A friend of mine once said to me “Nicholas, If I had known this thing would be this tough, I would not have started it” and I replied “Thank God you did not know because you would most likely not have started it and you would not have achieved what you have achieved today”.
We all get to that point where we have to make decisions like this, either to go on or to let go, either to keep pushing or give in, either to keep believing or lose faith, either to succumb to defeat or to keep fighting. In such times, I try to answer the following questions: Am I comfortable with the current status? Is there any chance that I might get to achieve it with a little more sacrifice? Is there any story to tell from letting go? Has anyone ever gone down that path and achieved it? If they did, why will I not be able to?
Robert Tew once said “Sometimes what you’re most afraid of doing is the very thing that will set you free.” So, what do you do? Keep going or give up? It is a choice you would have to make at critical times along the way.
And just before you draw your conclusion remember this “The doubters said “man cannot fly”, the doers said “maybe, but we’ll try”, and finally soared in the morning glow while non-believers watched from below” ~ Bruce Lee.
Decide where you want to belong and I do hope you make the right decision.
Have a great weekend.
I honour you!
