Life is not for the faint of heart. It’s really not. Life can kick your butt sometimes. It can beat you down when you try to step out and achieve things in your life. It can drag you through the mud when you thought it was going to be downhill all the way.
You see, going after high goals or dreams is made to look like something that is accomplished quickly and easily according to Hollywood. They make it to where the bad stuff lasts only a few minutes and then you get everything in the end and it’s not hard.
But real life doesn’t work like that. Real life is tough. Achieving your goals is hard work. It takes a lot of determination and a lot of grunt work. It takes getting slapped around and continuing to go forward. It’s not easy work, but it is rewarding and it grows you, in ways you don’t ever realize till you are done.
So be bold. If you are setting off to achieve your goals and dreams don’t get disillusioned by what the media and the world will tell you. Friends may say you are crazy. Family may say don’t be dumb and take risks, and Hollywood will say it will be an easy road.
None of these are true. It will be tough, but you’ve got this. You were born to do great things. It’s in your DNA. Don’t deny it, don’t hide it. Go after it with all you’ve got.
