Finish. Don't quit.
Sometimes life can get pretty crazy. Many times I feel like giving up myself. Even if I have all the tools, coaching, people around to lift me up and keep moving me forward, I need my mind to be right for me to be able to continue.
There is no other way around, producing at high levels is a mental game we are playing every day. The game of pushing not only when we are winning, not only when we are being praised, not only when we are feeling accomplished… but in those tough moments in which we wonder… is this worth it? Would I be able to do it? What if I don’t? What if all of this fails and I end up changing my name and running away to some Caribbean country?
The more responsibility, the more people in your teams, the more around you hitting you from all directions… the more that voice that urges us to run away pops up. But guess what? There is no running away. There is just nowhere to run. Because even if you think you are running from the stress, the frustration. You only want to run because you haven’t risen yet to the point in which you can handle all that and move it forward.
But you will. You just have to stay consistent there. It doesn’t matter how long it takes you. It doesn’t matter how many times you have to be reborn a day and change yourself and improve yourself and grow yourself at every second. It doesn’t matter how many mistakes, how many disappointments. We must continue. We must finish.
There is only one lifetime that we have in this universe. And Fear, feelings of lack, insecurities… whatever challenges… are only illusions. We can overcome them if we train our mind. The journey never ends. It will never end, and it will just get crazier and crazier, but we will get stronger and stronger and more and more able to handle our crazy dreams.
If you dream big. There will be big joys. But also big responsibilities. You have to learn to embrace it all, integrate it within you and become that person that can handle what you wish to create, what you wish to have, who you wish to impact.
