Hard Work Goes A Long Way

I’ve found myself to be talented of many things. Certain things naturally come to me, but the only thing I know that would bring me from point A to point B is discipline and persistence.

That’s the only thing that comes between one and their dreams-it’s the will to take it above and beyond each and every single day. In reality it gets hard when you’re around a few folks who feel like they gave up on their dreams and feel like they don’t need to think that far ahead. In many ways they will try to convince you to stop following yours and give up on yours. Many of those people will come to try and drain you until you end up where they want you.

I have made it far in my new job role, finding the willingness to move past mediocrity and put passion and love into what I do and I currently love doing it. It is teaching me the ways I need to be if I want to succeed in other parts of my life.

I am extremely grateful for the things I have learned since 2 years ago. I haven’t thought to learn or teach myself anything and spent hours everyday either sulking in my own disappointments or brainwashing myself via movies and television. I was completely uninspired and unmotivated as a mother, wife, and person.

After a few podcasts and different methods of motivating oneself and doing things to improve my life that I feel will improve the lives around me, I am currently able to easily brush past the unnecessary criticism and negativity and find ways to be my truest self. I learned to say no to things that I felt wasn’t serving me and bringing me to to myself. There were some things I had to let go of in order to honor the progress I have taken thus far.

And it’s all never easy. I’m constantly in a battle of joining the crowd and deciding to walk alone. Most times I do and I’m okay with it but sometimes I find little holes of void I want to fill in with mindless social activity but then I find I regret it, filling in pockets of void. I found to be much happier filling in the pockets of void with methods that make me happy and bring me joy.

I try to remember, my why, everyday. I want to work hard so that when an opportunity presents itself I can say I was prepared for it and allow my failures to lead me into better opportunities.

I heard great news today, that my productivity and numbers reflected my doing well and I admitted I get easily unmotivated but I find ways to motivate myself each and everyday and find ways to keep smiling. Even on the worst days I remind myself why I’m here and forgive myself. Just know you can never work too hard but you can always easily fall behind. It’s all about the seasons, in the words of Jim Rhon.

Love,

Martha
