It’s easy to get caught up in things, get distracted, and eventually lose your focus. It’s easy to blame this on something else and all that excuse to be your scape goat. Its easy to then sit on your couch and complain that others are successful. Its easy to let life pass you by and act like it’s not your fault. It’s hard to actually shut your mouth and just work.
Life is full of obstacles. Its full of challenges that allow you to fail or push you to reach your higher potential. Its moments like these that you have to use. You have to use them to grow and continue to live the life you want to live and not the easy one.
How do you out work the situation? Effort. As Ray Lewis said, “Effort is between you and you”. Its something that comes from within. And if you choose to go through the pain you will see success. But in order to get through that pain you have to give a lot of effort. When you accept the challenge and choose to apply effort to your life then its an opportunity to grow.
Effort is what will get you through the tough situations in life. It will help you grow strong and allow you to stop using excuses as crutches that boost your ego.
