When the Going Gets Tough - The Tough Get Going
Have you heard this expression before? My mom used to say it all the time. When the going gets tough, the tough get going. Of course, I didn't get it during my teenage years (you know - the years where you think your parents don't know anything).
Life can get tough sometimes, especially when you are going through battles. Those battles are meant to help you grow. However, if you constantly throw your hands up & give up when it gets tough - the true growth never happens.
You see - life is what you choose - over and over again. What you choose to do during the good times and what you choose to do during the tough times too.
Sometimes, you can forget what a strong warrior that you are. You let fear creep in. You doubt yourself. You begin to tell yourself that you can't do it. Why should you even try.
"Stay in your head - you're dead" Tony Robbins
Your mindset is everything - always. Whatever you choose to allow into your head - is what will be. Life is What You Choose - and those choices you make during the tough times are the most important.
Sure - it's easy to choose to be positive and motivated during the good times when you feel like you're floating on good energy and butterflies. But are you going to step up as the strong warrior that you are when it counts? When you don't feel like it? When you want to run and hide?
When everything seems to be going wrong and you doubt if you can even do it. That's when it counts. You are tougher than you give yourself credit for - so get out of your head.
Get back in your heart - that's where your warrior courage lives. It is inside of you. Waiting for you to tap into it. Tap into the power and strength that lives within you.
When the going gets tough, the tough get going.
So, Get going already.
Get back into your heart.
Back to your strength.
Back to your courage.
Back to being the warrior you are.
Take a deep breath - you've got this!
Life is What You Choose
