Life Issues Pt.2 - Against All Odds
Against all odds. I think that should be the motto of every person that is striving to be successful. The "odds" can be almost be anything: a lack of money, a lack of experience, a lack of self esteem and the list goes on and on. But to become successful, one has to over everyone of them and anything negative that comes your way.
You may have a dream that you "know' will come through, but as soon as you tell a love one it is immediately shot down.What do you do? Go against the odds. You are building a business but there are still no visible signs of success, what do you do? Give up or rise against the odds, you choose. You are in a long term relationship but suddenly things look shaky, what do you do? Give up all you have achieved or go against the odds? Again you choose.
Persistence. Anyone who has been successful in life has that weapon in their "success arsenal". When the odds are weighing against you heavily, a dose of persistence will see you through. Persistence is the stuff dreamers and achievers are made of, and it will help you overcome any obstacle on your journey to success. My friends, apply this remedy to your life's situations and you will realise that it was really worth it - going against all odds.
To your success and mine,

"Only as high as I reach can I grow, Only as far as I seek can I go, Only as deep as I look can I see, Only as much as I dream can I be" Karen RavenIn spite of the unpredictable weather (tropical heat, then snow blizzards!) it is Spring! (Or is it early Summer? I can't tell!) With Spring comes the chance to be outside more - even if it is dodging between rain showers! I know, the weather isn't really playing ball at the moment, but couldn't you be? After a winter conserving energy and warmth inside, and of lovely comfort foods, it is time to shake yourself off and become more active, to add more movement to your life and to begin to breathe.When you wake in the morning, instead of rolling out of bed groaning, take a moment to throw back the covers, raise your arms above your head and stretch! Take deep breaths and really welcome the start of a new day.
