Don't fret, choose courage

Hey lovelies
Sometimes we find ourselves in those situations we dread so much that we just want to do nothing except jump out of them ASAP. There are some positions that we do not even want to sit down and imagine ourselves in them.  But somehow, we realize that we gather the ability to overcome them anyway. It is amazing how we wait for such situations to open our eyes to our true potentials.
It's almost like they came to spur us up to the journey of discovering our innate potentials. You'd never know how well you can run until you have a roaring lion chasing after you. Some people pray against such situations but in the contrary, situations that make you stronger are nothing but blessings in disguise.

The next time you find yourself in such moments, moments that leave you anxious, sad and helpless remember that setbacks are there to make you spring further. Pray for the strength to overcome them instead. Think about when you bounce a ball on the floor, the harder you bounce it, the higher it goes up. The more situations seem to pull you down, the more colourful your rising would be.  It is important to know that you have to make a decision to bounce back. Do not withdraw to fate, rather look on the inside and you'll realize that you can overcome it. You have all it takes to do whatever you set your mind to and to become whoever you want to be. You just need the right drive, so when you see the situation that is there to produce that drive, don't fret or complain just count yourself privileged and make the most of it. It is not there to mar you but to help you discover the unlimited potentials within you, you never knew you had.    


Life will never give us exactly what we want but we have to be able to grab what we need from what we have. Just like the saying "Good things do not come in attractive packages", they certainly do not look rosy and it is ok if you need to battle with fear.
Nobody achieved anything without learning to overcome their fears.
Fall back on courage. Courage is not the absence of fear, but the mastery of how to overcome fear. For courage to be present, fear has to be present too. And whenever you are afraid, remember that it is just another opportunity to build your courage up another notch.
Choose courage till you overcome all your fears.

Love always
JB

    I love that analogy! It's so right and well defined!. Thanks for sharing. Fear should only push us further to achieve our goals and not pull us back. We should use fear as a motivation not a distraction.

  3. "You'd never know how well you can run until you have a roaring lion chasing after you" You are soo right but i guess it's only human to wish for easier.

    You can't call yourself a victor without being in battle.
