Pushing Yourself To Do Hard Things

Those moments when things gets tough are the ones beyond which lay the potential for bringing about transformational change in a person. These moments filter the best from the rest and test the seriousness of one’s intention.

But how to continue pushing oneself amidst all the challenges?

Two things to keep in mind in these moments are:

  1. Why you started in the first place? 
  2. What benefits you are going to realize post completion?

Take an example: You want to look fit, feel healthy and strong. So you start hitting the gym. But once your muscles starts getting sore or you’re feeling too lazy or unenergetic to hit the gym, to keep pushing yourself, the focus should be on the reason you started the entire activity with and also you should intentionally become aware of the benefits you are reaping in the form of a leaner body, shapely face and higher stamina through all these exercises since the last few days. And if you take the time to reflect on these two factors, most of the time your motivation level should be back at its proper place.

Most of the good things in life like a good body, great skillset, excellent communication skills etc. are simple to train for but hard to attain mainly because each of these things, at some point, reach a plateau which proves to the most demanding for anyone. It is at these points the winners, through sheer grit and willpower, push through to attain what they started off to attain in the first place. As such, only a few people enjoy a fit body or a great skillset to dominate their field-these things are are simple yet hard.

So the next time you feel like hitting a wall, double down on your efforts to break the wall because what you have wanted lays just on the other side of that wall.

Thank you for your time.

See you tomorrow !!!
