It is the end result which is in my mind now and nothing else matters. If I didn't know why I am doing this I would have just gone back to bed right then, but in my head, i can see the end so I took the step and got out. The starting is always hard not matter how many times one has been running. It's always hard to get started. As they say, "it is always difficult until it is done". The joy of success is in the initial pains you go through. Both your body and mental resolve gets stronger from those initial pains. Until this happens your mind can even start playing games with you to a point where you literally think "i might collapse and die right here and right now.'' In so many ways it may feel like you are just walking to the very end of everything you have ever been but with time you learn you are just experiencing labour pains of the birth of a new you...
....so despite the darkness and being unable to see anything, step by step I keep moving. Ignoring the feeling and fear of the possibility of dropping and dying, I increase my pace and keep my chin up. And as if by magic, my heartbeat settles and my legs gets comfortable. All of a sudden its just pure joy I am feeling. Once again I can actually believe the sun will shine again, the storm will settle and life will go on. Purpose breeds confidence and confidence lifts the spirit which in turn brings strength. Once you have your goal and purpose of doing what you want everything else becomes simple.
Opportunities are lost not because we are not capable but because we often forget the reason why we are doing what we are doing. When someone shares an opportunity with us, most will say "it not for me, or am to busy I can't do that". Like they say, seeing is believe. If you want something, write it down, read it over again and again. Make a plan and be consistent with its execution and then see magic unraveling. It's that simple but not easy but it is achievable. You have to keep pushing every day and getting things done no matter how hard it gets don't give up even if you feel like this is the end and you are about to die. Remember to put a deadline on your goal for it is that which will drive you towards your destination with a sense of purpose. Finally, Just do it!! I did it and believe you me, I am happy that i did it. Feels so great and refreshing!
