I HAVE A WORD FOR YOU TODAY.
HOW HARD IS YOUR RESOLVE?
IT LOOKS SO EASY WHEN IMAGINED, BUT IT BECOMES DIFFICULT IN REALITY.
PRESSURES ARE EVERYWHERE.
YOU CANNOT DENY THIS FACT.
PRESSURES FROM FAMILIES AND FRIENDS
(and maybe in-laws if you are married)
PRESSURES FROM THE SOCIAL MEDIA
(that is if you are easily carried away by the frenzies).
PRESSURES FROM EMPLOYERS OR EMPLOYEES.
PRESSURES FROM THE GOVERNMENT.
PRESSURES FROM WITHIN.
EVERYWHERE YOU LOOK, THERE ARE PRESSURES COMING AT YOU.
YOU CAN’T JUST COPE ANYMORE.
YOU JUST WANT TO TAKE AN ALTERNATIVE ROUTE.
WHY IS THIS HAPPENING TO YOU?
AT LEAST BILL GATE AND ELON MUSK ARE HAVING IT EASY FOR THEM.
BLAH BLAH BLAH
CALM DOWN FRIEND.
I feel your desperation and I most certainly sympathize with you.
I NEED TO BE FRANK WITH YOU.
YOU WOULD FAIL WOEFULLY IN LIFE IF YOU KEEP THIS CRAP UP.
PRESSURES ARE NORMAL WITH LIFE.
EITHER YOU ARE AT THE FOREFRONT OR BACKEND, PRESSURES WOULD ALWAYS FIND IT’S WAY TO COME TO YOU AND AT YOU.
DO YOU KNOW YOUR PROBLEM?
- you think your case is peculiar to you alone or your business.
(LET ME LAUGH SMALL PLEASE)
HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA.
YOU HAVE BEEN TELLING YOURSELF A LIE ALL THESE WHILE.
THERE IS NOTHING THAT IS PECULIAR TO YOU.
It is not about you.
It is about the life you have chosen to live, the choice you have chosen to make, the actions you have decided to take and the responsibility that comes with those choices and actions.
YOU CAN’T AVOID PRESSURES.
You just CAN’T FELLA!!!
You need to get this fact into your head quick enough.
DON’T FORM AN HABIT OF GETTING TIRED TOOOOOOOOOOOOO EASILY. - YOU WOULD ONLY HAVE SUCCEEDED AT SETTING YOURSELF UP FOR FAILURE.
What should you do in the midst of all these PRESSURES?
KEEP YOUR RESOLVE INTACT.
DON’T LOSE YOUR RESOLVE TO PRESSURE.
When you planned to start out, what were your expectations?
what are your values and convictions?
This is the only way you can thrive in the midst of pressures.
RATHER THAN COMPLAINING AND RANTING.
I HAVE NEVER SEEN ANYBODY WHO EXCUSED AND COMPLAINED HIMSELF OUT OF POVERTY AND MISERY.
YOU WON’T BE THE FIRST.
SO, IF PRESSURES WERE THE REASONS WHY YOU GAVE UP?
Then you’re a blockhead FELLA!
I have got an advice for YA.
Pick yourself up again.
DO IT AGAIN.
FACE YOUR PRESSURES HEADS-ON.
PROMISE YOURSELF NEVER TO LOOK BACK NO MATTER WHAT.
IN ALL - MAKE SURE YOU KEEP YOUR RESOLVE.
Hope you got my GIST?
I WOULD LEAVE YOU TO ANSWER THAT THIS TIME AROUND.
BUT DON’T FORGET THAT:
IN THE GAME OF SUCCESS, ONLY THE STUBBORN ONES WIN.
SO, HOW HARD IS YOUR RESOLVE?
HOW STUBBORN IS YOUR PASSION?
ANSWER THAT QUESTION even as you read this article all over again.
THE GOOD NEWS IS THAT.
EVENTUALLY THE PRESSURE INCREASES AS YOUR SUCCESS INCREASES.
SO, THE HUSTLE CONTNUES.
IF THAT IS BAD NEWS TO YOU,
I WON’T SEE YOU AT THE TOP.
I am out of here.
