Sometimes you have to surrender in order to fight for the important things. Pick your battles. Don’t try to take on everything all at once. You don’t have to be overwhelmed if you don’t want to be. Throwing up your hands and walking away from a fight will help you reserve your efforts for what’s really important on your path.
If you try to fight every situation as it crosses your path, you’ll wear yourself out and deplete your energies. You don’t have to fight everyone at every turn for reasons that aren’t even your own. Some of the battles you’re engaging in aren’t even yours to take on in the first place.
Choose your battles carefully and make sure you’re picking the ones that need to be fought in order to take you forward. The battles that keep you in the past aren’t worth your time and they certainly aren’t worth your efforts. So let them go and turn around to face the future.
Select the battles that will break down the barriers and overcome the obstacles that are in your way to success. Overcome the fears and self doubts you’re carrying around within. Stop the negative self talk! Especially the doubting talk that was put on your shoulders by others. Their limitations of you are not yours to carry. Their inability to stand tall and reach for their dreams are not your baggage to own.
The journey is where you learn the true measure of yourself and what you’re made of. The efforts and how you react to them, learn from them and overcome the ones that need to be fought will create the person you want to be. It’s not the brass ring that starts your journey. That’s the end game, the final prize, the ultimate goal. What lies before the achievement and how you progress after you’ve attained it, is what matters the most.
So what you do today and how you fight to reach tomorrow will setup the type of person you become and what you do with your success after you’ve achieved it. Don’t sell yourself short. Don’t live up to the limited expectations of others. No one else can tell you what you can or cannot achieve. Even the most impossible of dreams are worth reaching for and trying to attain. Take on the challenges that are worth fighting and be true to yourself. Become the strong, compassionate and balanced person who utilizes their success for the betterment of all and not merely the self.
