I get easily tired and weary especially when I feel what I have as a desire, should come as quickly as I have desired it. Essentially, what I am admitting to you is that I set myself up for a fail.
Set myself up for a fail? But, how, do I hear you ask? Why, are you slow?
When, for those who are curious because they empathize, do you set yourself up for a fail? Ah, let’s not kid ourselves with these questions, because the “I” in there, is actually mirroring you.
I set myself up for a fail by believing that what I desire would come to pass as soon as I desire it, or that desiring it alone is the end all and be all of it coming into reality.
Even nature teaches me that when I plant a seed in the soil, it’s not just because I feel like hiding my seed somewhere “safe”, or that I just woke up and said, “I feel like planting this seed today”, no. It started as a desire to see that I had more of that seed, or to prove my worth as a farmer or to even show off that I wasn’t to be left behind in the game of farming; whatever the reason, it was a desire.
But my desire did not come to fruition as soon as I desired it. It took time. Within that time frame, it took perseverance and careful nurturing to ensure that my initial goal was achieved.
O.k, I guess some of us are not into the farm bit, J but let’s not lose the sweet bit.
Understand that I am saying that whatever you desire requires you to take action, make progress within a given time frame that your desire stipulates after which the results would determine whether what you set out to achieve was worth it or not. But, it all started with that one desire.
At this point, I must confide in you, it takes guts and every ounce of encouragement available to not give up on the desire that made the journey necessary. I mean, I desire to be rich, but why is it taking so long? Why can’t I seem get a job? Why is no one noticing my efforts? Why is the pregnancy taking too long to happen? Why is it that when it seems I am down , circumstances still want to beat me into the ground? O,k, too many “whys” just so you’d see my point that there are so many reasons to give up.
It is important to look around and best of all within and find a reason to say, “This desire is worth the effort”.
So much has been said about individuals who were told they couldn’t become what they eventually became, how about adding your name to that list? Most times, looking at the word that brought you here, the idea is that you need an outer spur to egg you on to make your desire count, but hey, why wait for someone to do for you what you can do for yourself?
As I said, here, you need to be at the top of your game in ensuring that the thing that set you out on your “journey” in the first place doesn’t lose its essence.
The people who won the race are the people who refused to give up whether they were ahead or not, but after overcoming all odds, they became what circumstances had told them beforehand that they could never be. They told themselves and believed what they were saying that it was worth the effort and went after it with all passion.
What is obstructing you?
