If I could share 500 words to inspire, this is the important wisdom I'd want to pass along to others...
Let’s start from the beginning… When you learned to crawl, it required a pushing movement. You had to learn to push your knees to move yourself to another point. Then you learned to walk, same push, different position. Then you ran, you pushed further and harder.
To think that pushing is not a necessary element of growth and life, try crawling into work or school tomorrow. Pushing is a physical activity that exerts more pressure out than you accept inside. Pushing is a fundamental of life. So why do so many resist it?
Because it is uncomfortable, it is unknown… and sometimes it hurts.
To become a success, you will be uncomfortable… most of the time. Furthermore, remaining a success means you MUST be comfortable “not knowing”.
Drill into your head that you WILL not succeed the first time. People will laugh at you, roll their eyes and cut you off in the middle of your story. This is part of the PUSH.
Drill into your head that you will be so very afraid of stepping into your purpose and destiny. It will be one of the most uncomfortable situations to be present in. But you are right where you need to be in that moment. This is part of the PUSH.
Drill into your head that you will want to give up many, many times over. It’s a natural feeling when something is unfamiliar and difficult. You will think that you are nuts for wanting to pursue something so risky. This is part of the PUSH.
Discomfort, the Unknown and Failure are the required mountains of any successful person.
People in the gym are always pushing. It’s the only way the muscles are strengthened. When stagnant muscles are pushed beyond their “comfortable capacity,” they are strengthened.
What is true about the physical is also true about your mind, your intellect and your thoughts. When you have faith in what you see, you have sight, but when you push past what you see, you create vision. Show me someone who failed because they “pushed” and I will show you the leprechaun and white unicorn I have in my backyard.
Stop peddling and pushing a bike uphill and you will roll back, perhaps further than you started. Pushing and quitting do not go hand in hand. They are opposites. No one pushes just so they can quit.
Life is a Big Push. It requires more of you than you will receive, but the rewards of pushing are amazing. What if great inventors such as Thomas Edison (the light bulb), Alexander Graham Bell (the telephone) or George Washington Carver (peanuts) stopped pushing?
Once you get the fever to push, it’s hard to stop.
Push till you reach your goal and then set another one.
Push yourself to do more, to learn more, to be more.
It’s all in the P.U.S.H… Pursue Until Success Happens!
