21 Apr Find a Way to Win
Sometimes there is absolutely no good reason to believe that you can win. Sometimes, there is no tangible evidence anywhere in your life to suggest you can pull off something extraordinary.
Maybe you don’t have the network, or the experience, or the education or the money to do the unthinkable.
But for some reason you just believe you can.
A part of you is terrified; and it doesn’t make sense; people laugh at you when you tell them or they give you the condescending “ooookkay” and yet for some reason your belief still lingers.
So, you go for it and what happens?
You fail of course. You fall flat on your face. Obviously, you have no network, or experience or money or education. What were you thinking…dummy!?!
However, it’s in this moment where all the magic happens. Some of us will agree with the doubts, the insecurities, the comments from others and decide to give up. While some of us will recognize the truth in what the legendary coach Vince Lombardi said;
“We may not succeed every time, but if we work patiently toward our higher goals, savouring victories and shrugging off the small setbacks, we will prevail.”
Some of us will decide to “Find a Way to Win”. Capturing the essence of what Tony Robbins so eloquently said; “it’s our resourcefulness not our resources that determine our results”.
If you’ll allow yourself to recognize the age old wisdom that if you could see it…it wouldn’t be faith. Something truly magical can take shape in your life. Understand that faith is the essence of things hoped for the substance of things not seen. Our higher goals require us to step out on faith (the things unseen), shrug off the set backs and maximize our resourcefulness to succeed.
