I fail. I stumble. I fall on my face. I am beaten, defeated. How many times thoughts like this invade your mind? How many times did you feel like that?
Earlier, I had that kind of thoughts and feelings quite often. Recently, I have heard a sentence by Mohammed Ali that shift my perception of that. It goes like that.
“Only a man, who knows what it’s like to be defeated, can reach to the bottom of his soul and come up, with the extra ounce of power, it takes to win when the match is even.”
You are choosing to go on a new path. Start something you never have done before. And you expecting that it will be easy. It will go without any issues.
Hear me out. It might be like this, it is possible. However, it is very rare, to be this way. Usually, you will have to overcome a lot of issues.
First of all, your fears. You are about to leave your comfort zone. So you might think. How is it gonna be? Do I manage? How I manage? What people will say about me doing this? What if I fail? And so on.
Secondly, you might have some blockages. I have no money or other resources. I don’t have the knowledge required. I don’t know where and how to start.
Those are just a few of the excuses, fears you most likely will experience. Do not assume that starting something new will be easy. Think, rather, that you have the power within you, to overcome all of the issues.
Always focus on the goal that is waiting for you to get it. Have faith that you can accomplish whatever you decided to. And win your price.
