The say feelings come and go. They also say motivation doesn’t last. Neither does enthusiasm.
Love, hate, depression, frustration, disappointment, anger…none of those truly last.
They come and go, depending on the circumstances in our lives.
So, what lasts?
Principles, as long as we hold to them no matter what. Promises, as long as we hold to them no matter what. Decisions, as long as we endure the consequences of our actions.
That is the one thing that lasts.
No matter what you feel, you decide what you do.
In fact, what you do when you feel depressed, lonely, bored, or just lazy will define your life far more than the fight you put when you really want something.
It’s a bit ironic, but the more you work for what you want when you don’t feel like it, the less you have to struggle when you feel like it.
People want to do what they feel like doing. They want perfection, happiness…passion…
These things come and go. They are temporary.
There’s a world of difference between being strong and feeling strong, between avoiding what you don’t want to feel and accepting it. Between going through a lot or going over a lot.
The choice is yours.
This is what it all comes down. What you choose to do when you feel like giving up…
Your dream is possible. It’s there, for the taking.
But you’ve got to realize that whatever it is you’re feeling, be it fear or boredom or disappointment, it’s often just an illusion.
The sky isn’t the limit. Your mind is.
