HOW TO KEEP GOING FORWARD WHEN NO ONE IS APPLAUDING YOU.
Can you do it without applause? What if other people don’t approve of your journey to become the best version of yourself, will you continue to keep moving forward? Suppose people criticize or make fun of what you are doing, can you handle the criticism and especially if it’s coming from people who mean the most to you? What if there is no one to clap or give you a tap on the shoulder when you hit those personal records, will you keep going on?
Some people can’t because the approval of others is more important to them than self-approval. When starting off on the journey to own your authentic self, you must understand that it is personal and the key here is endurance. You need to know that not everybody will be able to keep up with you. This is because not everyone has the capacity to face one disappointment after the other and still keep moving forward.
Sometimes in this journey of owning our authentic self, we get weak in the mind and body. We get emotionally and mentally drained. When under this kind of pressure, it will require a lot of determination to keep going on a daily basis when there is no one to cheer you on. If you have even one person who celebrates your success, or encourages you to keep going on when life is throwing you blows and just want to quit, then consider yourself lucky.
You will have to put in everything that it takes to stand the pressure when all hell breaks loose. Endurance and every ounce of your will power, will be the key to withstand the constant challenges that life will throw at you, if you want to keep winning.
