When All Else Fails

When all else fails, keep trucking! I feel like an 80 year old saying that, but sometimes when life gets rough and you don’t know where to go, what do next or who you can trust, it’s all you can do.

There are a million ways to say the same thing…

  • Weather the storm
  • Dance in the rain
  • Have faith
  • Hold on
  • Stay strong
  • Carry on
  • Sink or swim

Beyond the simple words, the message behind it is the same.

I honestly think the key to success is your ability to keep going.  It’s not always about what new article you can write, what new project you can start or finish, but your ability to not give up.

It’s better to keep going on a straight path than to divert your attention somewhere you know will take you bad places, like hanging with those people who influence you negatively, diving into booze and giving up altogether.

Sometimes within all madness all we can really do is keep going. I’ve had one of the most insane years of my entire life, and beyond all the madness, I’m most proud of myself for still going strong. Still loving, still caring, still fighting.  And I’m not alone by any means.  Many of the people around me, on Twitter, Facebook and even you (my faithful reader) are going through your very own “life tribulations” and “unforeseen fails.”

So for goodness sake keep trucking.  If you truly want to be successful, and I know you do because you’re here reading this, it’s the one ability that will carry you through no matter what you do.

 

Psttt… I know two people who believe in you.  Me and the big man upstairs!
