Your down, lost and questioning your purpose in life. Hopelessness sinks in as misery takes hold of your thoughts. You’ve strived to get somewhere but ended up in a fog of confusion. Nothing worked like it was supposed to. You’ve lost money, you’ve lost friends and there is no clear path forward. What are your options when all hope has been choked out of you? What do you do when life knocks you down and keeps kicking you?
You do have options when life is beating you down. You can give in, turn around, settle back into ordinary. Or, while you’re still breathing, you can fight. You can keep kicking and turning over every stone in sight. Often, the success we seek is just out of reach. Just far enough away to cause 99% of us to pack it in. Imagine turning back when the next victory is centimeters from your grasp, the next stone!
You must be relentless and prepared to create a path forward when others in similar situations would throw in the towel. Whatever your battle, if its meaningful for you, don’t throw in the towel. Getting your teeth kicked in is sometimes the price you pay to be a part of the 1% of us that grind forward regardless of how hard things get. Some people you just can’t stop, nothing holds them down. If you’re not one of those individuals, you need to become one if your life’s purpose is going to be extraordinary. No exceptions, no excuses, no regrets. Overcome the ape.
