“It’s okay to fall down sometimes, just don’t stay there”! ~Deetra La’Rue
People are so quick to throw in the “white towel”, because it’s so much easier to just quit. However, what they fail to realize is, the moment they give up, they forfeit their hopes and dreams. Hope nowadays, seem to be the very thing a lot of people don’t have. As I mentioned in my book, “Let’s TALK”, so many people are okay with falling down and remaining there, because it’s too much of a hassle for them to get back up again.
Rather than use their strength to get up, they lie there, because they feel as though their situation isn’t going to get any better….which is something they don’t want to face anyway. Every body has had their fair share of failures, and will probably expect more throughout the course of their lifetime. We all know it doesn’t matter how many times you fall down, as long as you get back up. For some, getting back up is almost instant and adds fuel to their fire, which gives them the drive they need to succeed.
For others, falling down just confirms the idea that they aren’t meant to succeed, so what’s the use in trying, right? #Wrong! Our mind wants us to believe that when we aren’t experiencing the success that we envisioned so quickly, we need to “wave our white flags”, because we’ll never achieve our goals. That’s the problem, too many of us are still waiting on the microwave to go off at any moment now, because it’s much quicker than allowing our hard work to bake, while we sit through and enjoy the process.
That’s it! Nobody wants to endure the process, they only want the results. But, how can you honestly appreciate and enjoy your success, if you didn’t do anything to get it? If anything, it should make your success that much sweeter to have, because you know of all the hard work, sweat (stress, yes that too) and tears you put behind it. Nobody ever said it would be easy, but rest assured, it’ll be worth it in the end!
So, resist the urge to “throw in the towel” and “wave the white flag”! Success is hard work, and again, it doesn’t equate to how much money you have, so stop beating yourself up about it! Remember, “It’s okay to fall down sometimes, just don’t stay there”!
