People say things are “too hard” to accomplish. You know what? They’re absolutely right. It is too hard to do…for them. But not you. It’s not too hard for you because you want it more than they do. You care about your dream more than they do.
The brick walls are there for a reason. The brick walls are not there to keep us out; the brick walls are there to give us a chance to show how badly we want something. The brick walls are there to stop the people who don’t want it badly enough. They are there to stop the other people!
I love this quote. Often when chasing a lofty goal you can hit a point of exhaustion. That, or you can hit a point of rejection that gets you questioning if it’s worth trying. It’s just too hard…and it is too hard. It’s too hard if you’re not investing and if you don’t want it badly enough.
However, merely wanting something isn’t good enough. Sheer desire and wishing isn’t the whole battle. The truest demonstration of wanting or desiring is action. Are you putting in the hours? Are you being bold and sticking your neck out there despite potential mockery or rejection?
While this post may be coming off as another one of those feel good motivational chats, I don’t entirely mean it that way. I think it’s healthy for us to ask ourselves every so often when pursuing goals how far we’re willing to go an how serious we really are about making change in the world and making things happen.
Everyone wants the world to be a better place. A whole lot of people want to achieve greatness. How many are putting their shoulder to the wheel and willing to make it happen? Which camp do you fall in?
