Just like Rocky, when you get knocked down, you’ve got to rise up again. If you lose a fight – be thankful. You’ve learned a lesson and you get the chance to come back stronger for the next round.
“The righteous may fall 7 times, but they rise again!"
I stand behind that message. Every battle big or small requires us to jump some hurdles. If you buckle, cave or give up after the first few, how strong is the foundation of your dream? Are you really committed?
Someone once said, “Commitment means staying loyal to what you said you were going to do long after the mood you said it in has left you.”
Many will never see their dream come to pass because they lost the fight to fear. They postponed it to wait for a better time. But the better time never came.
In the first year of stepping out on my own, there have been many mental barriers I had to face that I didn’t even know I had. But the truth is that a dream was placed uniquely within me… a desire to affect everyone that I come in contact with. When I started to unlock my dream, I pushed farther than I knew I could.
It's the same if your goal is to lose weight, or get healthier - ask anyone who has done it the healthy way. They will say how it has positively impacted the people around them. Family. Work. You name it.
And the greatest part in overcoming obstacles is you get to see what you’re made of!
So when you get knocked down, just remember you have a heart. And a fighting spirit that’s stronger than you might even know. Fuel it and fight!
