A particularly frustrating part of struggle is the ability that it has to stop us dead in our tracks IF we allow it. The potential embarrassment of failure freezes us. The possibility for rejection discourages us. The idea of disappointment makes us check out of the game.
The problem isn’t that our struggles trip us up and prevent us from moving forward. It’s that we choose to stay stuck on the problems. We agonize over them; we obsess and analyze and dissect them. We decide that if we can get down to the root of our recurring challenges, we can defeat them once and for all. Most people get hung up on the details. Details can paralyze you. Highly successful people don’t worry about the details; they trust the details will work out themselves. They have faith.
Sometimes analysis serves as a weak excuse to stay stuck in the center of our issues. It’s easier to dissect and analyze them than it is to move on.
It appears that successful people inherently know this. Instead, always move forward. Always move toward the target. Keep putting one foot in front of the other and then do it again until you get to the target. The secret behind it - Intention. How you do it… the method is negligible. With a high level of intention and a focused goal, you will eventually discover the method.
Your abilities will increase as you advance and you will find even your intentions will increase. Through resistance and pushing through, you show your ability to succeed. Always move forward.
The solution to your problem is not to contemplate all the ways in which you’re not good enough. Get back up and prove to yourself that you are.
Put yourself back out there. Take the risks that you are most afraid to take. Look at your life as a series of averages rather than a series of individual hits and misses. Most of life is a series of failures before you hit success. Nine times out of then you will strike out. And eventually you hit it out of the park at least once.
That one hit is worth all the strike-outs in the world.
So get out there and get your nine strike-outs and - No Matter What - Keep F*cking Going!
