Sometimes, right when you are at your breaking point, is when you find the answer. That discovery defines the difference between a failure or being great at something.
We all face situations that sometimes seem become intolerable. We become tired of giving more than a good effort and seeing less in return we’d hoped for. We may look at and secretly envy others and wonder how they achieved only what we have dreamed of. We all come across moments of wanting to quit. What’s the use, right? Why keeping going?
The moment, you decide it’s over; that is when you realize failure always was an option for you. No one won a Grammy, an Oscar, made it to the Hall of Fame, because they chose to quit. Winning maybe temporary, but quitting lasts forever.
Delays and setbacks do not equate to failure; failure comes when you make the decision to stop making forward movements. When you disengage persistence and patience. Quitting is then engaged within your mind, and you reveal it by your outward actions. On the road to success, pain is inevitable. Success isn’t linear, it’s a maze.
You will never ever be successful, until you can turn that pain into greatness. Until you allow your pain to push you from where you are, to where you need to be. Stop running from your pain and embrace it. Your pain is going to be your biggest motivator, your fuel that separates the good from the great.
Take chances to push yourself. Let go of the brakes. Beyond the comfort zone lays the unknown – where we discover who we really are, and decide who we want to become.
Make greatness a habit. Make Pain a process. Endure it. And, then you will realize success becomes inevitable.
