When working towards a dream or goal, the final hours, the final leg before a breakthrough can be the hardest. How do you push through to the finish line when it feels like you don’t have that last ounce of strength in you to get to the other side?
You are enough. Just as you are. Not in the future. Not when someone else loves you or acknowledges you. Not when you finally have the perfect job. Not when you are finally “rich”. Now. Here. All of you. In all of your present glory. You are enough.
The most important time for a seed is when it goes underground. The most formative moments happen underground. Exposure at the wrong time could destroy your seed.
Are you feeling stagnant and frustrated? Do you feel like “nothing is happening”? Watch this now.
When we fight life, life fights us back. I know this for a fact. I also know that some of the best things that have ever happened in my life have happened without my “help.” It is not about giving up but, instead, allowing your intuition to lead you toward inspired action. You are not fretting or worrying or chasing and you are not tied to any particular result or outcome—you are acting from a place of truth and trust.
Whenever we're going through a difficult time, we become so fixated on how wrong things are and eventually get stuck on the feeling that things will stay that way forever. We forget that there was once a time when that situation didn't exist and that there will eventually come a time when it will cease to exist again. If there is one thing life guarantees us, it's a lack of permanence. Everything eventually passes. Take solace in that.
What happens when you get exhausted in the middle of your race? Do you stop completely? Do you go back home? Do you give up? You can stop, but don’t stay where you’ve stopped.
When we embark on a journey to bring a dream or passion to life, we often focus on what we don’t have instead of what we do. Stop discounting what is readily available to you –what already exists within. If you don’t have it, you don’t need it. Take what you have and run with it.
