An order of ups and downs

Lets get up and get moving again

Advertisements

Tired and with a side order of huge ups and downs. Not what you thought was on the menu but like so many things in life, it’s what is being served up anyhow. Life can come in fast and hot but it’s not about absorbing the blow. It’s about moving on after taking the hit.

We haven’t forgotten to write recently. Far from it as we been thinking about posting every day but the momentum wasn’t there and posts would have felt forced. Now that enough time has passed that we finally have the needed emotional and mental capital to push some posts out the door. You see, life has been piling up with things both good and bad. We’ve had some pleasant surprises and major disappointments. We have faced fears and embraced joys. We’d be lying if we didn’t admit to it wearing us out.

The grind had reached the precipice of what we could take and it only triggered us to reenergize and get back on the horse. So here we are and I life had you in the same spot we are here to tell you that we understand are sympathetic to your cause. You see you and us are no different. You can only take so much until you hit that wall. What happens in that moment makes or breaks you. Do you give up and walk away? Maybe, but maybe you don’t and you dust yourself off and try again.

We need more people out there who don’t throw in the towel. Grit is what will make you great and it’s al\so what will keep you moving forward and separate you from the masses. So join us in getting back on the horse by picking up whatever you put down and get moving again. Together let’s put quitting off for someone else.

We are so grateful so many of you have taken time out of your day when you could have done anything else to read yet another post about getting off your ass. Whether you are a first timer or have been here before, you are all special to us. Nothing would make us happier than you helping us spread our presence on the web by following us and sharing it with someone else. We also post different info and ramblings on Twitter/Facebook/Instagram so follow us there to

Today we break out of the routine

At some point we have to go after it or else we’ll never have it

How are you going to make things better today? What steps are you going to take to get that much closer to your dreams? We only have so many hours in a day and how we use those hours will determine just where you end up.

Every day that passes is a missed opportunity to achieve something greater and is a gift that has been given to each one of us. You have the tools whether you think you do or not. You have access to work and capital as well as information. There are people and resources everywhere that would love to help you succeed but are you searching them out? Here’s a newsflash, they aren’t going to come and knock on your door. You are going to have to get off your ass and go to them.

You are going to go to work today and daydream about what it would be like if you had more time, money or opportunities. Well stop daydreaming and start doing. It’s not going to happen overnight and you are going to take small steps forward. What this means is that you are finally moving forward. You are the one in control of your destiny. You get to call the shots for a change. No longer are you destined to get caught up in the winds of fate as they blow by.

Visualize that goal and decided that you actually want it. You want it bad enough you can taste it. This isn’t so easy as you can never be 100% you are willing to tackle all that it will take to reach your dream. You have to decide that you are going to commit to it, though. Create a plan on how you are going to get there. What obstacles are standing in your way? Just what is the best way to go over, around or through those barriers. This is where the frustration will set in because your dreams haven’t already been achieved because they aren’t easy and will take time. Your patience will be tested as you start down your path.

Remind yourself constantly about where you are going and why. Don’t give yourself opportunities to go astray and quit. You aren’t a quitter and this is no time to give up or put it off. You’ve been doing that your whole life. Now is the time for action. It’s time to pick yourself up, dust yourself off and get on that daily grind.

We all have different versions of what we want to become so everyone’s path will be different. Make no mistake, though, even though we are all different we are all going to have to man up and do something that is hard, uncomfortable and scary. We will have to step outside of our comfort zone and in some cases way outside and take a risk. We will have to through caution to the wind and gamble a little bit. We may have to spend a little less time with someone we love or a little more time with someone we don’t. We may have to spend a little money one something or not spend any money at all. Shoot, we may have to forgo money or time altogether if that’s what it takes.

We are going to ask for help when we need it and we are going to do hard things when they need to be done. We are going to get up early and go to be late.We are going to grind when we are hungry work when we are thirsty. We are going to do all this because we are living the one life we have been blessed with. There are so many who are born around the world who have none of the opportunities you do. Let’s agree that to not use them to go after our dreams is a waste and a slap in the face to those who were born in places that were robbed of the luxuries we have from birth.

So today when you get up and you read this ask yourself again. What am I going to do today?

We are so grateful so many of you have taken time out of your day when you could have done anything else to read yet another post about getting off your ass and being better than yesterday. Whether you are a first timer or have been here before, you are all special to us.
