According to Joe Girard, “the elevator to success is out of order. You’ll have to use the staircase, one step at a time”.
Things could get tough along the way: then what! Stay focused.
It could get worse when the steps lose their interconnected integrity and you have nothing to elevate yourself to your intended destination. “Make hay” now while it is day and “the sun (still) shines”. Darkness is just ahead when your vision, as in choices, would surely become limited. Stop wishing for the golden parachute, or this and that…! Do something good with what’s available to you until something better happens for you.
Make it a great day!!! (Oh wait: – God bless you)!
So, do you just throw your hands up and hang your feet up in the air and just give up? You can’t! Even if you foolishly decide to do the latter, the all constant gravitational force will not allow you. You will surely fall or just crash, like “Humpty Dumpty”, into pieces such that you may never be put together again.
Never give up on your dreams or aspirations because of a few hiccups on the way. As they say, pick yourself up by your bootstraps and keep climbing “upwards”. It is true that there are many negative forces that would look to pulling you down at all cost, but there are usually many more that are looking to helping you rise above your difficulties.
As a famous empathetic and realistic American would say, it does not matter how many times you fall, “ya keep gettin’ up”, and I may add, keep rising up till you can stand on your once rubbery legs and walk, even, run: okay, don’t get carried way now- don’t try to fly- “you ain’t got no wings”, be realistic!
Good luck. “God love ya”!
