You must find your why.
That why that gets you up early in the morning.
That why that has you staying up late.
That why that keeps you going.
If your why does not fill you up with a mixture of emotions, bringing with it both happiness and tears, laughter and anxiousness, eagerness and worries,
then it is not your why.
Keep searching until you find it.
As a single footstep will not make a path on the earth, so a single thought will not make a pathway in the mind. To make a deep physical path, we walk again and again. To make a deep mental path, we must think over and over the kind of thoughts we wish to dominate our lives
In my life, I’ve learned that at precisely those times when life seems to get worse that you may actually be getting ready to make a leap. When you feel like you’re getting nowhere-stagnating, even slipping backward- what you’re actually doing is backing up to get a running start.
