What is it about the adversity in our lives that causes some people to engage their perseverance to succeed and others to crumple to the ground, paralysed in fear? This might seem like an odd question to pose. But when you consider that there are a multitude of books, seminars, and programs developed by psychologists, self-help experts and motivational speakers to help whoever will pay overcome their extra challenges, succeed in life and be happy with their lives, then it becomes evident that these are questions worth pondering.
There are many stories out there about individuals who beat the odds stacked against them and succeed. There seem to be just as many stories about people who have given up on life, who have no sense of hope. It is not my intention in creating this blog to suggest what people should try to achieve what others want them to. Rather that in the face of adversity, they can succeed in overcoming the things that hold them back from doing what they want to do. I do wish that more people had hopes, dreams and the wherewithal to at least make attempts at satisfying their desires. There are quite a few people who live in fear of change and lack the support they need to overcome the things in life that paralyze them.
I know that the right thing to do is to keep on trying, to keep on dreaming, and to shut out the many naysayers and put-down artists out there. Perhaps there are nay saysers because they do not know how to succeed themselves. They have probably not taken the time to understand your current challenges. Perhaps they have not considered that we all are continuously undergoing transformation.
I know this not because I have always accomplished every goal I have set for myself. And I don’t claim to know this because it made me fabulously rich or famous. It has not. I only know this because I would not be able to write this if I had given up. I know this because I have had to face my demons or cease to survive. I know this because I have been lucky enough to have people who support and love me enough to selflessly give of themselves to help me dare to succeed. It is a profound gift to have family, friends, and coworkers who just exspress their faith in you.
I hope in this blog to be able to help people having a rough time to find a way through their pain and fear. I invite readers to ask questions and offer constructive suggestions in their comments. There are many people suffering from illness and hard luck in this world who need hope, faith in themselves and the support of others to succeed.
