Just because it’s difficult

motivational saying
Start with self. Do this to yourself, for yourself.

 

Just because it’s difficult is no reason to quit.

In fact, it’s the perfect reason to double down on your efforts.

Because it’s tough is exactly why we have no choice but to press on.

What if?

High School Baseball field
Field of dreams?

 

Editor’s comment: this is written for an audience of one, me. If it resonates (or makes you feel uncomfortable), perfect. That’s exactly why i write these blogs to myself (and our Son, for future use)…

Where is our field of dreams?

Since 2000, i’ve become clear about the habitual pattern for using distractions, medications, and entertainment to manage the pain we experience from our unfulfilled promises to ourselves.

Yes, i think we all do it…

Medicate, distract, and entertain ourselves into a pleasurable state to avoid the pain from still secretly holding onto big dreams we have no intentions of fulfilling.

Yeah, it’s tough being an adult.

Giving up alcohol 15 years ago and caffeine one year ago have facilitated incredible focus on the obvious.

Achieving our crazy dreams require us to rethink, reprioritize, and recommit.

The long way is the short cut.

On April Fool’s Day 2009, jeff noel began writing five daily, differently-themed blogs (on five different sites). It was to be a 100-day self-imposed “writer’s bootcamp”, in preparation for writing his first book. He hasn’t missed a single day since.

When Your Life Changes

Patience is personal leadership strength

UPS Overnight delivery envelope.
This was waiting when we returned from Disney’s Animal Kingdom Park yesterday.

 

Are you working on something important but feel like giving up? What is the only thing that allows us to persevere in the face of long-term adversity?

It’s different for each of us, which is why we struggle. We want the fail-safe recipe for success.

In a nutshell, here’s your best clue for your fail-safe recipe. It revolves around motivation and patience.

In preparation for Mid Life Celebration’s first catalytic leadership keynote speech featuring The Disney Way, the client sent an incredibly valuable packet of Company and event information.

It only took six years.

Not for the UPS package, for Mid Life Celebration’s first paid speaking engagement.

Six years.

Who waits that long?

A patient person with a clear, concise, and compelling vision.

It’s almost always embarrassingly slower than our reputation and ego can handle

Constantly learning WordPress, from the ground up
Constantly learning WordPress, from the ground up

 

The beautiful reward for hard work, and refusing to quit (ever) – and being open to new paths, is this…

Slow and steady progress.

Almost always embarrassingly slower than our reputation and ego can handle.

Yet always stronger and more profoundly beautiful, meaningful, and impactful than we dreamed it could be.

Because it was so much work. So much longer. And defeat looked so much bigger.
