In case you haven't noticed, it takes a lot to get what you want these days. Whether it's raising your kids, caring for parents, grandparents or just holding onto your job. Maybe you’re lost in an endless job search.
One thing for sure, it ain't easy.
Perhaps you’ve returned from Iraq or Afghanistan and you’re trying to figure how to move your life forward. You are not alone.
Many of us are striving to find our way, regardless of age or our place in society. Maybe you’ve just graduated from college or high school. You’re afraid of your future. You might be worried that there is no place for you or no career path available to you.
There are pressures now unknown to a prior age.
So how do you handle it? You can insulate yourself with weed (now legal in Colorado) or bury yourself in alcohol. Neither is likely to get you where you need to go.
What to do?
Time for a gut check. Time to wrap yourself in a new cloth of tenacity. Time to develop a quality of being determined to do or achieve. Develop an unfailing firmness of purpose.
Whatever you do, don’t be afraid to achieve what is in your heart. Go for it. Follow it.
Take a lesson from Naya, my daughter and her boyfriends new puppy:
Kelly - love that tenacious puppy reminding me to stick with it. We're all in this marathon and it's gonna take patience, focus and endurance. But if you're really doing what you want to do (that's the big question) then what the heck else do you want to do anyway... :)
