“Let me tell you something you already know. The world ain’t all sunshine and rainbows. It’s a very mean and nasty place and I don’t care how tough you are it will beat you to your knees and keep you there permanently if you let it. You me, or nobody is going to hit as hard as life.
But it ain’t about how hard you hit. It’s about how hard you can get hit and keep moving forward. How much you can take and keep moving forward. That’s how winning is done!”
Life, this endless tragedy unto itself. Silent in sanity, audible in madness. And somewhere hidden in the midst of all this, mankind’s urges. His urge to win, to dominate. To decimate, to succeed. To be the best at whatever he does.
But take a moment here to think about it. Is this as simple as it sounds? Is there a set formula for winning? Does there exist this magical route that leads you to all your dreams and aspirations, just because you will it?
I believe there does. There is a path, albeit a difficult one, that exists, a proverbial set of steps that ascend to the pinnacle of our aspirations.
Maybe whatever you are doing today is not working out. Maybe it won’t work out even tomorrow. But at no point in time, does this mean that you give up. Because there’s more dignity in losing and trying again than there ever will be in giving up, and going back home.
Try to recollect every incident in life where you gave up. Think if the outcome would have been different if you would have just persevered. Hell yes, It would have been different!
Of course, just because it is simple does not mean it is going to going to be easy. There will be days, when you are on the verge of giving up, when everything’s going against you, when the world seems so unfair that you just want to lie down and cry.
But as Jack Ma has aptly said, “Today is cruel. Tomorrow will be crueller. But the day after tomorrow is going to be beautiful. “
This Innovison, Do not limit your challenges. Challenge your limits. Challenge everybody who has ever doubted you of being capable enough to win. Challenge norms, challenge traditions. And you know what your weapon in all these challenges is going to be.
Persevere. Win. Level Up.
