The idea for writing on this phenomenal quote was birthed out of the life experiences and challenges which I faced in the previous year. This quote stood out to me as it was clearly reflective of all that I had endured; the good and bad, and has showcased that both serve very important purposes in embracing me along the journey of my destiny. As such, it is from this that I am now able to share the life lessons learnt with you, to help you along your journey and to reassure you that at your lowest point all you have to do is just keep going!
At times life can become extremely challenging in ways we could have never possibly imagined or perceived in our wildest dreams. Not only do the unfavourable occur in ways we can never seem to understand, it always appears to occur at some unforsaken time when every little thing in our lives seems to be spiralling out of control. In these times, it is extremely difficult to show a brave face and stay strong mentally, physically and emotionally; but as Einstein said, “life is like riding a bicycle, to keep your balance you must keep moving”! This discourse seeks to expound on the ways in which individuals may maintain composure and move forward in the moments when life seeks to wreak havoc on our confidence and peace.
To keep moving forward in life it is necessary to forget your mistakes and regrets in the past. Although this is generally easier said than done, holding on to past mistakes and regrets can most definitely hinder your ability to excel in the future and recover from the mistakes that have acted as restraints in your life. Don’t beat yourself up over mistakes, use them as a stepping stone to your destiny by learning from what you did wrong and those aspects of the situation which you could have handled in a better way, the information gained from those mistakes may facilitate the making of better decisions in the future.
Many times when we face problems and are stuck between a rock and a hard place, we find it not easy to ask those around us for help because we may feel inferior or unworthy. Think of it this way, there are millions and millions of people on this Earth, and everyone has been bestowed with varying talents and gifts, it is only natural to need help from others in certain areas of life, and there is nothing to be ashamed of when in genuine need of the assistance of another. To achieve your destiny and keep moving forward in the cycle of life, you cannot achieve it all on your own, you will need the help of those around you. So, boldly go forth and conquer those fears by asking for assistance!
Taking complete responsibility for your actions will create a sense of self responsibility and onus which will encourage you to pursue your dreams without excuses. You should want to achieve your goals so much that any obstacle which crosses your path will more than likely be demolished by your resilience and drive to achieve. Except for the rare and unforeseeable circumstances in which you may not be accountable; you are in direct control and the outcome of your decisions will be to your benefit or disadvantage.
