When you’re pushing for goals that seem impossible…. I believe that everything happens for a reason. Sometimes, even when you try your absolute hardest, show up everyday and do your absolute best, you still lose. It DOESN’T mean that you are not FREAKING AMAZING at what you do or that you should throw in the towel. I believe that everything happens in His perfect timing and there is a purpose for everything in your life. This quote popped up at His perfect timing.
“Sometimes you have to lose so you can realize how bad you want to win”
I am not saying to give up just yet. But what I am saying is to not let the negative self talk and self doubt tell you that you aren’t good enough.
Val said to me…”every year there are thousands of ball player trying to make it to the majors. Out of those thousand there are hundreds of players that make it to the Major Leagues. Those major leaguers play the game really well and make a great living. But only a select few of those hundreds of players will make the all star team each year. Just because you didn’t make the all star team this year doesn’t mean that you aren’t a Major League Player. It doesn’t mean you aren’t a good player. It just means that you didn’t make the all All Star Roster THIS year.”
So true. So if you aren’t going to get that bonus, promotion, or rank advancement. You didn’t lose the weight, finish that project, or do whatever it is that you set out to do this year…it’s never to late to become the person you have always wanted to be or do the thing you have always wanted to do. Keep playing the game and do MORE of what you love that gets your closer to that goal.
