Deb Reviere shares her motivational mantra on pursuing your dreams no matter what life throws at you.
This is for those of you who have the courage to go after your dreams. Who dare to have a vision. Who elevate yourselves physically and mentally every day. This is for those of you, for whom mediocrity, is NOT an option. Yeah, I’m talking to you! Learn to roll with the punches. Do not let the slings and arrows of life get in the way of your success. They will come, but whether you use them as an excuse to stop, or you get up off the ground and keep moving is up to you.
You have to believe because if you don’t- nobody else will. Life is going to test you You cannot let a negative mind-set be the obstruction that keeps you from being the best that you can be. You will get down. It doesn’t matter. You won’t feel like getting up for your 5:30am work-out. It doesn’t matter. There will be relationship dramas, no time, no money. It doesn’t matter. You don’t have to FEEL like it You have the ability to elevate yourself above your circumstances through the power of your commitment. All you have to do is just keep moving. Believe in yourself Know that you are worth the effort and deserving of success. The price is action. If you can drag yourself to the gym on an off day when all conspires against you, you are already a champion. Soar when you’re able to soar When you’re inspired- it’s easy. But when it gets tough and life knocks you down and you’re laying on your face - Get Up. Crawl if you have to Crawl until the storm passes but keep moving. To keep moving when things become difficult- This is heroism, this is leadership. These small acts of heroism transform you into an athlete who has self-respect-who has pride. This is winning! Courage is not- and never has been the absence of fear. It’s not about ego, it’s not about swagger- Forget That. Courage is about taking action in the midst of challenge. A well disguised friend that can make us, or break us. So next time you’re on the ground, take stock. Ask the hard questions. Who am I? What am I made of? Okay, it’s a crisis, but you either control life- or life controls you. So stand up to be counted and stand tall.
You’re not just rolling. You’re rolling with pride.
