Have you ever experienced feeling on top of the world and then the next moment you find yourself at the bottom again? Do you feel that it seems to be a never-ending cycle of building yourself up, just to be broken down again?
I have come to terms with this and find that it is the main contribution to the growth one achieves in life, and the faster the cycle happens, the more you grow, thus I try and take on every opportunity that comes my way, even if it does mean being broken down again. One thing is for certain; you should never let it discourage you from trying again.
It is through this process of building yourself up and being broken down again that you grow and that you learn how to deal with situations that you ordinarily would not be faced with if you were sitting around and waiting for things to happen on its own.
For instance, if you are faced with a stressful situation, eventually you will overcome the situation or challenge and then you will look back and question why you were so stressed about it, and then in the future when faced with a similar challenge, it will be easier for you, and less stressful to overcome, thus making it easier for you to achieve what you want to achieve. Without the first challenge, it would be a different story.
It becomes a source of motivation; to try and try again, until you achieve what you have set out to achieve.
Even if you are at the top of the ladder, might it be in your social, professional or personal environment there are always challenges that will bring you down, or at least that will attempt to bring you down, it is how you deal with these challenges that take you to the next level.
The key is, and this is what I find personally, is to be positive, inspired as well as inspirational and motivated as well as motivational to others at all times to achieve your goals, aspirations and dreams.
Here is a quote to end off my post: “The happiest people don’t have the best of everything, they make the best of everything”.
