It’s fourth quarter. Everyone says you should give up the game, and why not? You’ve felt the despair and disappointment for quite some time.
All of the right signs are there. You’ve fallen.... miserably.
The clouds of doom are everywhere and now you feel to even try was a mistake. Borderline mad at the prayers you sent up to provide an answer.
As the fans leave, you’re heart sinks.
With your head held down to the floor, you are suddenly reminded of the hard work you put in. All of the sacrifices you made. Your dream excites you and has always pushed you to do better. And with every door you’ve pushed, the front entrance may not have opened, but a side window suddenly unlocked. Then a back door was left open. Before you knew it, you’re in the house. Maybe not as an invited guest, but still an occupant nonetheless.
I know the journey has been long, but my friend, life would be unfulfilling if the world handed you easy travel. Priviledge attacks courage....and without courage, nothing daring would ever happen. Innovation wouldn't exist, history could never be made and dreaming would cease. To dream, is to live, so believe in what makes your heart flutter. As you stand in the house, let's appreciate the position and remember why you're there.
You see, as an insider you have everything you need. Quietly, without anyone noticing, you can develop your skills and build success. Your dream, is the purpose that has kept you energized for this long, so don't stop dreaming now. Your dream, has given you the courage to introduce yourself to opportunities you never thought you would experience, so don't stop evolving now. The happiness you feel, as you journey to the top, isn’t a facade, it is real. And even though you may feel as if you are ready to quit. Don’t you dare walk away. You've found the house, now knock it down.
