So stayed tuned for a personal insight on tips, information and advice aimed to inspire and motivate that I am discovering as I embark on my journey to unlocking my inner greatness. I hope it helps you as it is helping me!

Today I would like to share on the topic: FALL DOWN 7 TIMES, GET UP 8!

The notion of endurance can be a confusing one. It dictates that no matter how difficult or stressful the situation you are going through, you need to stick at it until it changes. As humans, we are programmed not to go through anything that causes us discomfort. For example, if you have a headache, you take painkillers. If you are cold, you wear a sweater and if you are hungry, you eat. Our natural tendency is not to tolerate uncomfortable situations. Endurance is not a natural act, however, it is very necessary in order to succeed in whatever you do.

Nothing worth having in life comes easy. Ask any person who has been privileged to grace the cover of a Forbes magazine. The one thing that all of their stories have in common is an unwavering attitude to stick to their chosen path no matter how tough things were. There is a time and a season for everything. When things are great in your chosen career, you will never think of quitting or finding another option. We feel we are exactly where we need to be. So what changes all of a sudden when things are bad?

Your attitude should be consistent in both good and bad times. Do not quit easily on your chosen dream no matter how hard things get. If it is meant to be a success, you will have to endure some pretty tough days. How else are you going to appreciate the rewards when they come? Endurance helps you focus on that inner strength which is God. It builds your faith in a higher power to take you through. It tells you that, you cannot do it on your own and that is ok. You are not alone. You are exactly where you need to be, and if only you commit to your chosen path, eventually, as it is with all things, that difficult time will pass and you will find you are much stronger than when you started.  Choose today not to be a quitter. Winners Endure till the end. There is a reason why you cannot win a race until you cross the finish line. Once you start a journey, always look to complete it and remember, no matter how many times you fall, there is always a last stand.

Be yourself, everyone else is taken.

Peace Hyde.
