The secret to success isn’t previous success – it’s never giving up.
Today I was trying to post a new workout that I did last week, but my technology fails to co-operate – again! However, it gives me the chance to share something special…
I am currently writing a short ebook/email series (I haven’t decided on the final format). For some reason, Chapter 3 was jumping for attention today and I felt I should post it in a blog post instead. I shall write another chapter (or two) to replace it and write a bit more. plus this will give you a small taster of what the book is about.
I’m sharing my heart and soul with you in these short chapters. I want to take my life, which in many ways could have given me failure, to show you the ways I never gave up. Sometimes, I was extremely close to walking away from life itself because I couldn’t seem to keep myself on track and I was unable to perceive my own worth. Yet, for some reason, I never did give up. Do I have everything sussed? Eh, nope. Is that a reason to stay quiet? Eh, NOPE, NOPE, NOPE!!!
I want today’s post to show you that it’s never about getting or being the best, it’s about making the best of what you’re thrown.
My hope is that what ever you are going through, in trying to reach your goals or overcoming hardship in life, that you see it as a chance to press through and grow. I used to think some people “had it easy” and felt it was unfair that I had to endure so much to get where I am … that was before I was truly aware of the common challenge we ALL face (regardless of how it manifests) – seeing your current situation as a reason to keep going, not an excuse to give up!
And for God’s sake, try to inspire someone else along the way!
Today, I was inspired to post this, and the following song, by my friend, Kimberly Mills (Fit Possibilities)- who happens to be on a very similar journey to me Thank you, Kimberly for sharing this with me!
Now for today’s post…. which illustrates that without the journey, winning ain’t so amazing!
