Like Giggs infamous lyrics say ‘It will get bloody, it will get gory’, such is the premise of progression, success and greatness.
I had a ‘moment’ yesterday where I felt like the aspirations and plans I had for my life weren’t happening nor had they come to pass.
I silenced everything and connected with that feeling. I allowed whatever emotion that came to me to flow, which in this case was tears. And I’m not a crier or I should say I don’t like crying.
After talking and meditating, clarity came; things will get ugly before it becomes beautiful.
You ever look at something or someone and think this came together like magic? Well it wasn’t magic, unless magic is effort, hard work, smart work, patience, dedication, consistency, passion, failure, tears, sweat, perseverance, losing, ungratefulness, unappreciation, stress, doubt, producing rubbish, then I suppose it is, but nothing great ever just happens.
A house didn’t always look like a house
A car didn’t always look like a car
Serena Williams wasn’t always THE Serena Williams
Everything had a small beginning, a messy middle and a refined end…and then repeat.
The difference between those that succeed and those that don’t, is tenacity. Successful people do not give up, they grow through it .
So, the question is, do you want to be successful or nah? If so, then expect that sometimes there’ll be confusion, wins, self-doubt, high points, losses, success and so on, it’s part and parcel.
Don’t let the ugliness of it all deter you from believing and working towards better.
P.s I haven’t forgotten about the challenge, I did one of mine, did you?
