Sometimes it takes great determination and perseverance to reach our goals.
We might have to defend our strategies repeatedly, we might need to request funding for a project every time we reach a ‘milestone’, we might need to reiterate to our colleagues or our boss that we will meet the deadline.
However, there are also times when we ourselves become the obstacle in our own way: When we wonder if the path we chose is the right one, when we question our skills and the values we bring to an assignment, when self-doubt arises and the believe in ourselves wavers.
When the realization of ideas takes a long time, we might loose hope of reaching our dreams, giving up seems easier than carrying on, and we might feel left alone in our pursuit.
In those moments of doubt, ask yourself if the goal is still worth striving for, if you are still passionate about your endeavor.
Then picture yourself at the end of this road. How will you feel? Certainly, your friends and family will be proud of your accomplishments, but more importantly, YOU will be proud of yourself.
You were tired but you continued working, you proofed that you had the courage and the stamina to go all the way! You overcame the obstacles and you did not give up!
Imagine yourself succeeding!
Now take a deep breath and show everyone that you can do it, even if you may have to fight a battle more than once to win it!
Wishing you a wonderful week with the drive for success!
