Stickability, now you won’t find this word in a dictionary as I have made it up. This is what I believe is one of the biggest factors that most people overlook when trying to reach their own goals and dreams. Sticking to what we all started all of those years ago is really the key to completing the desired outcome.
I know that you may read this article and at some point you may say to yourself “I know that!” Well why then are there so many people today who are now realising that they need to get back on track?
I don’t for a minute claim to be teaching you anything new. As they say, you can’t re-invent the wheel, but what I am endeavouring to do is to make the wheel roll a bit better, by explaining things in a way that I view them or in a way that will make a bit more practical sense.
What goals or dreams did you have that you have just let go? What is it that if only you stuck it out through the tough times would you have been able to achieve?
Too many times we are all guilty of changing our mind and even our direction to take a different and less challenging path. One that is easier for us to handle just because we have failed to stick to our original plan and goal. That is fine if you just want to get by in life, but if you are like me you should want to fulfil those dreams that you have had for a long time and open yourself up to a new part of your life.
It is easy to stick to your direction and path when things are going well, when everything seems to be going in a direction that you are happy with. You are on cloud nine. You know, the times when no matter what you do it all seems to turn to gold. You can’t seem to do anything wrong. There is nothing wrong with that; in fact that is what we all need to get to.
Those are the times when we all think we are bullet proof. Then reality hits. Something goes a bit left of centre. Then it is panic stations. We start to over-react causing us to get way off the path we were heading. Then we seem to want to give up as we think that this is the best course of action. You see it is through the hard times, through the periods that things just aren’t working for us that we will learn more about ourselves than through the good times. It is our “stickability” in those hard times that will get us to our goals.
If only we see past the problems that are staring us in the face and push through those barriers we seem to think are stopping us from reaching those goals and dreams that we have set for ourselves. Then we will open ourselves up to new and exciting challenges that will takes us to where we want to go and potentially even further.
I believe that it is the tough times, the times when things need a lot of work and effort that shape us for life. If you give up to early and not stick things out, you will then instil a defeatist mentality, one that will shape your future actions and reactions in a negative way.
