“Stay true to yourself, yet always be open to learn. Work hard, and never give up on your dreams, even when nobody else believes they can come true but you. These are not cliches but real tools you need no matter what you do in life to stay focused on your path.”… Phillip Sweet

Life is a journey with unexpected events that change the course of our lives. When we pursue a specific goal, all too often we do not accept the fact that in the process of achieving a goal, there will be setbacks. I view the setbacks as “transitional events” that are not necessarily negative, as we would normally perceive them. They are just opportunities for reflection and adjustment as you continue your journey to achieving the goal.

Unfortunately, transitional events are often taken as fatal or just too difficult to adjust to, so we give up! No one ever said that change was easy, or that a new opportunity would be without challenges.

If you have given serious thought to your defined goal before proceeding to achieve it, why would you give up? Is your goal realistic, achievable and aligned with your values? If so, why would you give up and risk failure?

Never, never give up on a worthy goal that would add value to your life. It will not always be easy. You will have to go through some transition periods, make adjustments, but in the end, you will arrive at your desired result.

Where are you on your journey today?
