How often do we quit when the going starts to get tough, instead of using all our physical strength and mental power to see exactly how far we can go?
How often have you wanted something and just as quickly thought it was impossible to have that thing you wanted? Maybe you put forth a small effort to reach that goal but then the going looks to hard, impossible to reach. What do you do, quit or give your very best effort? Is it worth having if you don’t give your best, don’t quit on yourself.
Take on that project, that goal, that assignment giving it your best, learning something if you need to but always giving it the effort it deserves. Keep driving till you have nothing left, you think, then going that ‘extra mile’ one step at a time. With encouragement we can reach any goal.
That encouragement may come from within us, our own body and mind saying I can do this, if I don’t quit I will prevail, I will succeed. I can one step at a time, one more step and another. I will give my very best, my very best, I will do this, I can do this, my very best.
The encouragement my come from outside us, a coach, parent, boss, teacher, spouse or anyone who believes in you. They see something in you and know you can do it if you give it your best. This is how we reach our goals.
Leaders are Born
This is also how leaders are born. Leaders don’t waste their abilities, they capitalize on them and all their given strengths and build their weaknesses into strengths. Become the leader you can be, show by example that it can be done and how others can do it too.
Manage your reputation by how you lead by example, others follow what you do and listen to what you say if they are leading down the same path.
