Recently, I had a little personal set back. In the after shock, I was discouraged. As I was lamenting my fate, a friend kindly reminded me that all I needed to do was, "Just show up."
What profound advice.
"Just showing up" means we keep trying. Success is found in striving, working and aspiring after what we seek. But sometimes, just showing up is all we can do. We keep breathing. We look ahead. We hope. We do the best we can, though our best may not meet the requirements of
others--but that's their problem, not yours.
So, day in and day out, in spite of discouragement along the journey, (or a million other obstacles) just showing up means we expect to move forward toward the direction of our dreams; and day by day we will eventually find the imaginings of our wildest dreams a reality.
How do you deal with discouragement?
