Year 2010 is coming to an end soon, in about 1.5 months time, time flies and we are welcoming 2011 soon. The final lap is not finished yet and I am still running my final lap, are you running your final lap for 2010 ?
Running and running, keep on running, new obstacles, difficulties and challenges kept appearing in front of me, yet I am rewarded with achievements, rewards, gifts and blessings. If you do not control your emotions well, the negative side of you, the dark side inside you would swallow you, leading you away from the good side (Ok … I am a Star Wars fan)
Pressures can be boiling, controlling them is a must and it would guide you through the battles easier and faster. Many a times, the amount of time, efforts, blood, sweat, tears and joy, into the business and projects that I embarked on, seems to have no return of anything at all. These can be demoralising at certain times, however, the journey undertaken is never an easy journey to begin with and neither an easy straight path to the end point.
Quote : “When you feel like giving up, remember why you held on for so long in the first place.” – Unknown
If you are experiencing the same shoes as me or you are able to relate something with this, we have to dig deep into our hearts and ask ourselves why we started to embark on this special journey in the first place.
Quote : “Before success comes in any man’s life, he’s sure to meet with much temporary defeat and, perhaps some failures. When defeat overtakes a man, the easiest and the most logical thing to do is to quit. That’s exactly what the majority of men do.” – Napoleon Hill
Don’t give up in your final lap, whatever goals, objectives and targets you set for yourself. The journey ahead maybe daunting yet conquerable and achievable !
Perseverance Poem from an Unknown Author
“When things go wrong as they sometimes will;
When the road you’re trudging seems all uphill;
When the funds are low, and the debts are high
And you want to smile, but have to sigh;
When care is pressing you down a bit-
Rest if you must, but do not quit.
Success is failure turned inside out;
The silver tint of the clouds of doubt;
And you can never tell how close you are
It may be near when it seems so far;
So stick to the fight when you’re hardest hit-
It’s when things go wrong that you must not quit.”
Let’s run your own marathon, your own race ! Don’t give up and keep on going !
