you got this, hang on

“Many of life’s failures are people who did not realize how close they were to success when they gave up.” – Thomas Edison

  1. As Long As You Are Alive Anything Is Possible.
  2. Be Realistic & Patient, learning takes time – especially something new.
  3. Embrace failure as an opportunity to learn from your mistakes. Jordan, Beethoven and Stephen King were all rejected in some fashion and yet went on to super stardom.
  4. Getting knocked down is part of the game of life. Getting back up is how you win at it.
  5. Finding inspiration is a choice and one that can make a world of difference. Watch an inspirational movie and find some motivation today. I recommend “The Pursuit of Happiness”.
  6. If someone else can do it, then so can you.
  7. You already have what it takes, you simply haven’t found a way to access it. Keep looking.
  8. The feeling of regret or remorse is not a fun place to be. Neither is guilt.
  9. Feeling like a champion. The feeling of accomplishing something either you thought (or others thought) was impossible is enough to silence the critics and put a smile on your face.
  10. You are strong. Actually, stronger than you think but you will never know until you try.
  11. It’s an excellent learning opportunity.
  12. It could be worse. Sounds trite but there are people on this planet who are happier with less than you have at the moment.
  13. You are worth it. Seriously, you deserve it – now get after it.
  14. Things can and always get better. You have to keep moving forward to find out.
  15. Having breakdowns can lead to breakthroughs. The grass may actually be greener.
  16. Become a role model for success or simply model the behavior you would want others to see in you.
  17. Ask yourself this question, “are you missing something in your approach?” – maybe it’s time to course correct.
  18. Life is short, do something great today that your future self will thank you for.
  19. You may actually be closer to your goal then you realize.
  20. It’s a marathon not a sprint. Some goals may require a commitment of effort over a certain period of time. Overnight success rarely happens regardless of what someone may tell you.
  21. Embrace a setback. See it as proof that you’re working towards your goals and taking chances.
  22. It’s mind over matter. It doesn’t matter if you think about giving up 1000 times.  If you ignore the thought every time and persevere, you’ll still get there.
  23. You’re only as good as your weakest link. Take a look at your current support structure and see if it’s sufficient for you to achieve your goals.
  24. When one door closes, another one always open. So keep your eyes open and be ready to turn the knob. Some doors don’t require a key but a slight push.
  25. You are not your emotions or how you feel. Today is temporary, be with what comes your way but don’t allow a temporary feeling become a permanent emotional state.

“It does not matter how slowly you go so long as you do not stop.”– Confucius
