You can only chase a butterfly for so long:
Sometimes running would appease the nightmares, but soon discovered past won’t let go so easily. Things are not what they seem, and I begin to question the world as I know it.
I truly believe that we can all get what we want in life if we follow our dreams!!! Life can be challenging but dwelling in the past will never fetch you anything. I meet people who say they can’t or it’s too hard. For most of my life, I believed those statements as well. In reality “can’t” is a lack of positive thinking and self-confidence and “too hard” is simply exaggerated.
How do these butterflies know where to fly?
Instead of avoiding what challenges you, run head-on towards it! 99% of the time things that challenge you the most at that moment, is something that will give you the greatest benefit in the long run! Yes, it is hard and most of the time painful, but albeit if you take a moment to breath, think slowly about the long-term effects of the task (you will get stronger, you will get closer to achieving a skill you need, you will become more flexible, etc.), and set your mind towards defeating that challenge, then the challenge will be accomplished even before you realize it! The more you think about how horrible and hard it is, the harder it is to make yourself complete it. It doesn’t matter where you began; what’s important is whether you’ve reached the destination or not.
Planning:If didn’t catch anything:
I would suggest a method to cope this: When you find yourself making excuses, write them down and see if they are factual (i.e, “I want to run an extra mile mile but I have a broken foot.”) or if they are limited by YOU (i.e, “I want to travel but I don’t have enough money”).Don’t be pushed by your problems rather chase your challenges.Just take the leap forward and everything will fall in place at right time step by step one at a time.
Ultimately, even if it is factual, you must accept your reality and begin to look for alternative options, if these limitations are put in place by you, get creative and find solutions!!!
There are a lot of things which are not under our control in life, like times like today ,but we can control how and what we do during such times.Anything is possible if you want it badly enough!!!.
This pandemic has taught us to slow down and look around.Distress over uncertainty will cause anxiety.Take your time breathe and and think about good times in front of you.When one side few people were cribbing about the changes like lost jobs,financial crisis there are also some others who made more money more success stories.How did they manage that? They thought out of the box …they looked and chased other avenues to succeed.
Success doesn’t happen overnight one has to keep working on it.For the time being till uncertainty prevails look else where and try to chase your challenges.
“Whatever your passion is, keep doing it. Don’t waste time chasing after success or comparing yourself to others. Every flower blooms at a different pace. Excel at doing what your passion is and only focus on perfecting it. Eventually people will see what you are great at doing, and if you are truly great, success will come chasing after you.”
