Life is a journey, the greatest experience you will be living.The strength you need you will find within. In life, you’re going to struggle at times, struggling to find motivation to pursue your goals, do the work you should be doing or just work towards something you want or like to do. We all need motivation at times. Note to self: The motivation and strength you need are all within you. It just takes something or someone to give you that drive so you can exhibit how motivated you are. Everyone has their own different sources of what or who motivates them.It could be a friend, a family member, someone you look up to or aspire to be like, a quote, or just something that comes to mind whenever you lack motivation.
The journey will be difficult and it will be rough, but in the hardest of times you should never give up. The journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step. Making the first step in the right direction towards your goal or plan can also be the hardest. That’s why the first step is so important. There are no guarantees in life, but it’s important to make sure that you’re on the right path going in the right directions towards your goals and aspirations. When you start your course, there are times when you have to ask yourself:
“Is this what I really want?”
“Am I on the right path to achieving my goals?”
“Am I doing the necessary things to be done?” etc.
Life can be very intricate at times. There are going be moments when your journey gets rocky and when it gets really tough, leading you to feel hopeless, doubtful, and questioning the decisions you’ve made. In those moments, you should never give up. Always remember that all good things take time. Nothing worth having comes easily. It takes laborious work, smart work, dedication and good fortune. Be resilient and keep toiling; your breakthrough, victory, or success is closer than you think.
“It’s always darkest before dawn” is a perfect example of why you should keep on toiling despite all the struggle. The moments when your journey seems to be at its lowest could also be when your success, breakthrough, or victory is approaching. Many people give up way too early without knowing how imminent their breakthrough was or that the bumpy road they were on was about to get effortless. With all the work you’ve been doing, having some faith and hope could be all you need, so take the leap of faith and be hopeful. All that you need or all that you’re working for could be imminent. Note to self: It’s always darkest before dawn.
The hardest battles produce the sweetest victories, so give it your best shot and never doubt your capabilities. Stay focused and keep working towards your goals despite all the struggles and distress you may face. Your victory will be sweetest like never before when you’ve made it through the hardest of times. Let’s talk about time. Time is the master of all things, as you know, but it also teaches you to appreciate who you’ve got and what you’ve got. Oftentimes, the goals and aspirations you have stop you from recognizing the good you have. There’s always something to give thanks for, and even in your hardest of times, there’s always someone experiencing worse than the situation you’re in. There’s also that person who made it through worse than what you’re experiencing, so instead of thinking about giving up, recognize the blessings that you’ve got and be thankful always.
Life involves making decisions that may never pan out, but you’ve got to take the risk, keep the faith, and never lose hope. There’s a lot of risk that you take in life. You never know what’s going to happen until it happens, but you make decisions based on what you expect or want to happen. Decision-making is not alway easy. At times you’re going to get caught up in which is the best and which is not, etc. When the decisions you make involve people ,it’s always more intricate, because then you’re going to realize it’s difficult to make a choice that pleases everyone. In life, you cannot make everyone happy, and people will always disagree with some of the choices you make. Sometimes you have to put yourself and the ones you love first. Note to self: It’s impossible to satisfy everyone, so live your best life.
In your journey of life, you should always be a reflection of what you would like to receive. If you want to be respected and loved, be respectful and loving. If you want kindness and honesty, be kind and honest. You reap what you sow. Give a lot and expect a little. Always be good and helpful when you can, because no man stands alone and everyone needs help at some point in their life.The person or people you help the most and give the most love to will not always be the ones who help you in return. You never know when or who you might need help from, so be a reflection of what you would like to receive…Don’t just be a product of your environment; know your worth and what you stand for, and never get too relaxed about settling for less than you deserve. Note to self: Set the right standards for yourself and always imagine your self on the receiving end of your own actions.
The more you know, the wiser you become, so surround yourself with people who you can learn from; people who will build you up instead of tearing you down; people who see the good in you even when you find it hard to see it yourself; people who want the best for you, bring out the best in you and can help you become a better person. Life is what you make it, so make the best you can and be joyful. Happiness starts from within, being content and appreciative of what we have. In life, there’s always going to be more to learn, no matter how experienced you are. Note to self: Experience teaches wisdom.
In your journey of life, you will experience difficulties or discontent, and you will end up having a lot of regrets, and you may even ask yourself “why?”. Certain difficulties and discontent happen for the right reasons, which you will not be able to understand at the moment, but in time it will work out for the best and then you will understand why. Oftentimes, you’re exposed to difficult and discontented situations as a learning experience to prepare you and build you for much better things that are to come in your future. All the good things and all the good people you have in your life, the ones that love you, and hold you dear, and bring out the best in you, appreciate and cherish them right now.

1 Corinthians 10:13
No temptation has overtaken you except what is common to mankind. And God is faithful; he will not let you be tempted beyond what you can bear. But when you are tempted, he will also provide a way out so that you can endure it
A man’s heart plans his course, but the Lord directed his steps.
Delight yourself in the Lord, and he will give you the desires of your heart.
