Finish it!

Quote

Don’t quit. You’re already in pain. You’re already hurt. Get a reward from it.

Eric Thomas

True power is restraint

You will continue to suffer if you have an emotional reaction to everything that is said to you. True power is sitting back and observing things with logic. True power is restraint. If words control you that means everyone else can control you. Breathe and allow things to pass.

Warren Buffett

Worry not

A man who suffers before it is necessary, suffers more than is necessary.

It is your choice

Every warrior must learn the simple truth, that pain is inevitable and suffering is optional.

Malcom Merlyn

Make use of everything

We must embrace pain and burn it as fuel for our journey.

Kenji Miyazawa

Definitely not a simple thing to ask from any person, but pain in life is not optional. How you treat it on the other hand is within your power.

Use your negative experiences and your pain as motivation and as fuel that powers you on your way towards your goals.

Are you mature enough?

Maturity comes when you stop making excuses and start making changes.

Rafiki, The Lion King

Excuses are the easy way out.

Everybody can find excuses for anything. Excuses not to work out, not to get up early, not to eat healthy; excuses are the little devils on your shoulder that make your life easy in the short-term and miserable in the long-term.

Maturity is to realise that in order to achieve long-term success, you have to work hard and sometimes make unpleasant choices in the short-term. No pain no gain goes the saying and that’s damn straight when it comes to any form of achievement in the real world.

So get the excuse-automatism out of your head and start being responsible (at least for yourself). It will be rough in the beginning, but what can I say, you will reap what you sow!
