Push Through it all.

When you are going through hell just keep walking. Why do people stop when they think they are in hell? Why do people give up when the odds are staked against them? Why do we listen to those that have no confidence in themselves? Why do we let other people bring us down? What other people think of you is none of your business. Let them talk! Because they will. Small people talk about people, leaders talk about ideas, design and inspiration. What are you and what are you listening to? What are you talking about over coffee, dinner and  friendly chit chat?

If we let other people’s opinion  of us define us, then we are shooting ourselves in the foot. Consider this: most people out there have little to no self-confidence. Those with the least self-confidence are not the ones you may expect. These people are usually the biggest and baddest bullies. The people are the ones with the loud mouths and attitude to boot. Such people usually have nothing inside to hold them up so they think they need to try to bring others down. Such people love to criticise, laugh at, and pull you down publically. This is the only way they know to try to elevate their status over you.

Once you understand that the loudest people have the least self-confidence and self-assurance, it stands to reason that every day people also have self-doubt.  Understand this: if you have self-doubt, you can be fairly confident that most other people out there have exactly the same issues, questions, nagging doubts going on inside their heads. It is not only you. Push through those thoughts. Do not give them validation nor the time of day. You are completely normal for having those thoughts! It is Ok. You are OK. Push through it! Do not spend time on them nor focus on them. Instead,  focus on taking the necessary action in making your dreams goals and therefore reality.

Why do we all constantly compare and make remarks about attributes in people we don’t even know? We make instant judgements based on premise. All fallacy. With nothing substantial to back up statements and judgements.  Stop spreading rumours.

Just Stop.

If you don’t, then how can you expect to be exempt from the critical eye? Criticism is a habit many people have developed in the comfort of their own home in front of TV. We sit there, on our couches giving our harshest criticism on people who have stuck their neck out. We openly condemn those that worked against all odds to actually get on TV and give it their best. Why do we do this? To bring them down. Secretly we all wish we had the confidence to try ourselves.. but then we worry what other people would think. Other people (critics) just like… .. ourselves …as we sit there destroying these people, laughing  at these people, and are appalled that they should ever think to audition or have an opinion!!

“Who do they think they are??!!””

  • These people are The Ones. The ones who pushed through. Pushed through all YOUR criticism, sneering, laughing, cajoling.
  • These are the people who WILL make it, one day, if not this day while you stay repeating the same ol, same ol. Getting older, getting fatter, getting lazier. Fading into nothingness.
  • These are the people who pushed through the tough times, the bullying, the self doubt.
  • These are the people who made a decision. A decision in which they decided to CUT OFF from all else. A decision which meant they focused on their goals to the exclusion of all else. So that they would give it their best shot.

Do more

YOU can be this person too.

Just get up off the couch. Quit criticising other people no matter how preposterous you think their dream is. WHO are You to judge another person’s dreams? Haven’t you seen the complete transformations made in some people’s lives when they hold on to a dream, take the necessary action and just keep getting up every single time they get knocked down?

If you doubt them, if you think it is impossible; then you think it is impossible for your own life. Think about that for a second or three. The only reason you say it is not possible for someone else is because you are speaking your own self-doubts over someone else. If that person has made a decision to go for it- nothing YOU say can stop them. Why would your words affect them one iota? They don’t care what you think. You have no right to speak negative over their lives.

Just as no one has the right to speak negative over yours. Unless you let them. Unless you speak negative over others.

So stop doing that.

Start new today. Right now. Start with endorsing other people’s dreams. Start encouraging other people and you will be encouraged yourself. Self-confidence does not necessarily come from focusing on yourself. Perhaps you have been doing that for too long! Start taking the focus off yourself and turn your attention onto other people. BE an encourager. Open your eyes to the possibility of hope manifested. Give hope. Give life. Speak words of encouragement and life over others, and without you even trying, you will become empowered yourself.

The more you encourage; The more you believe; The more you endorse as opposed to tear down- The less you will need to push through as you will find hard times become less and less frequent. When they do occur, you will have strengthened your resolve;  your self-confidence; your belief in the possibility of hope, that you breeze through events you previously may have thought impossible to deal with.

That is the power of love. That is the power of walking in love. That is the power of being in love. Being in peace. Living in hope and faith. Take your eyes off yourself and your situation right now. Focus on the goal. Do the work needed and push through being positive in your steps; being positive in your words.

If you have nothing good to say, then choose to say nothing. Pulling other people down only pulls you down further. If you want to push through, if you want to fly like the eagle, then start acting like one.

Push through it all. Push through them all so you can soar higher every day.
