"Persistence can change failure into extraordinary achievement." - Matt Biondi
Many people, more than half of us tend to fail on our goals and life vision, we always end up stopping right before our big miracle moment of achievement. Basically what ends up happening is we keep hitting a darn wall trying to push it down, only to give up moments before we break right through it. This only happens because of our FAST PACED WORLD programming us to believe that in order to be successful in our pursuits of our dreams and goals, IT MUST HAPPEN FAST ! It must happen so fast that we barely spend any time building it, enjoying each moment as it passes and learning something from our so called "failures". We just want the result without the "efforting" or what I like to call the process.
But that kind of thinking of how it should happen THAT FAST always leads us to so much pressure we put on ourselves, so much stress about our so called short time lines and inevitably leaving our goals behind, accepting the kind of life we were given. If we understand that life; life itself is a process and cannot abide to society's rules, we can let go of those false and negative ideas of how fast things should be moving in our lives and how long our processes should be. We would be more accepting of our own individual journeys, without the judgement of how other people have it and how their journey looks like.
Just because, we are all unique and have a different path we must go through in order to learn and growth.
Which is why I am bringing up as how self discipline is truly just self love. It's a love of yourself, your journey and the progress you are making. No matter how fast or how slow. It is yours, it is perfect and it is beautiful. So when you have mastered in your mind how self discipline is just a matter of self love. It's no longer thought of in a way as "punishment" or pushing yourself to accomplish something. It's about loving yourself gently but also strictly in terms of getting something done; goal-wise because at the end of the day you are doing this for yourself.
"Persistence is self discipline in action." - Brian Tracy
You are building your dream life and achieving your goals for no one BUT YOURSELF. And that truly is a deep kind of self love, not punishment or something you must FORCE onto yourself to do or accomplish.
Your journey is perfect, your progress is perfect. You are achieving your goals your way and they are getting done on your terms, as LONG AS YOU DON'T GIVE UP. As long as you keep going, reminding yourself who you are doing this for and at the end of the day it's all about loving yourself throughout the progress and journey of achieving those goals.
"Discipline is the strongest form of self love. It is ignoring current pleasures for bigger rewards to come. It's loving yourself enough to give yourself everything you've ever wanted." - Ama
Take it easy on yourself, in a balance of keeping you on track to where you want to go. Do not be tough or bad to yourself because it may be taking longer than other people. Your wall is about to break, keep knocking through that wall and just know that once it comes down, your journey and process will be so worthwhile to what is on the other side of that wall.
Keep going. I believe in you.
