One step. And then, another. And another. And another. One step in the right direction today. Day after day after day. That’s what it takes to get where you want to go. To accomplish great things, impossible things, lasting things, we need endurance. The majority of us, like to have what we want, right now, with no effort, no work, no waiting. Just give it to us, RIGHT NOW. Our culture promotes this lifestyle, glamorizes this lifestyle, but reality is quite different. Reality usually gives us something drastically different, packaged in the form of hard, laborious, and difficult. Why? Because the fact of the matter is, life isn’t easy. Good things, great things, impossible things, lasting things, valuable things, don’t come easy. That which is worthwhile, doesn’t come easy. Change in life, isn’t easy. Reaching/accomplishing your goals in life, isn’t easy. What we are taught in our society, what is modeled within our society, promoted, and sold, is a far cry from the true reality of life more often than not. We need to embrace the hard life, the hard way. We need to embrace the fact that we grow in the grind and the grit of life. We learn so much about ourselves within the grind and the grit. Focus on one step. One step today. One step at a time. One step in the right direction day after day after day. No matter how hard it gets, just simply keep stepping in the direction you know you are to step.
