When The Going is Tough
When The Going is Tough, This is What You Say-
I’ll keep running and going for my dream goal
When I can no longer run
I’ll walk faster and keep going for my dream goal
When I can no longer walk faster
I’ll take a deep breath, and walk slowly towards my dream goal
When I can no longer walk slowly
I’ll crawl and keep moving towards my dream goal
When I can no longer crawl
I’ll sit, take a deep breath, and keep shifting towards my dream goal
When I can no longer shift
I’ll do in my mind all that I can’t possibly do physically
Until I have no mind to think or to imagine or to dream.
When The Going is Tough, This is What You Think-
-Both good times and bad times pass. Tough time never last, it passes, and this one too, will pass.
-It’s tough because it’s not easy. I’m on this journey because I’m brave and strong. I ought to celebrate my bravery and strength.
-Nothing good comes easy.
-Rather be a failure than a loser. A failure tries and fail again and again, but never quits.
-A loser quits and leaves the game.
-Live in the moment, after all it’s all we have
-Fear is only a thing; useful at times. Try yelling at it, and watch it run
-Procrastinators say they are waiting for time
-Time says catch me if you can
When The Going is Tough, This is What You Do –
-Pause, think and look at things from all angles
-Stay away from people who discourage you and sap you of your energy
-Grind every negative you were given into powder
-Mix up the powder with just a little faith to form a brick
-Use the brick to build more steps you can climb up
-Keep trying no matter hard it seems
-Do it first, seek perfection later
-Just go do it
When The Going is Tough, This is How You Rock It-
-Love you, you, and yourself first
-Stopping walking within the rule for it’s too crowded. Walk around the edge
-Never bow down your head. Keep it straight up
-Learn your craft
-Seek fair deal, and be fair to all
-Play chess, not checkers
-Keep your eyes on the goal, and want it like you want nothing more
-Your mind carries messages that are transmitted from beyond- be quiet sometimes to listen and process
