Overcome


When the inevitable challenges come,

thoughts of abandoning ship flood our minds.


Relax in the understanding that it's normal.


Our brain is designed to protect us from everything,

including ourselves.


We constantly develop our relationships, or work, our health, our mindset...

everything in constant motion.


We work hard to create all of this momentum that allows

us to feel good and accomplished.


Then we hit turbulence and our brain goes...

'fuck it, this was stupid, what was I thinking?'


We forget why we started in the first place,

we want to punt our plans and goals

and run for safety and comfort.


When it feels like it's coming down on us

we must realize that the challenge is here

to test us, our plans, our resolve.


Are we serious?

Or full of shit?

Do we really want it?

Are we willing to stick it out?

Will we earn it?


Challenge proves if we're serious,

shows us where we are lacking,

what needs our attention,

and how we can improve.


Allowing us to be grateful in progress

and the good times that come and go.


If we take the space to see these challenges

with proper perspective we can benefit

from overcoming them.


A victim perspective allows us to turn

everything into an excuse,

a reason to quit.


A grateful perspective allows us to turn

everything into an opportunity,

a reason to improve and forge on.


It serves us to understand that the cues

from the challenge are steering us towards

the person we were meant to be.
