Giving it Another Step

There may come a point in your life when it may seem like the odds are heavily against you and you have tried all you could but it looks like you are progressing in futility. At that point, the only thought that may come to your mind may be to quit but the truth is, quitting does not get the problem solve, it only excludes you from being the winner, rather it make your challenges the winner. At the point when you feel like giving up is the point that you should take one more step. You will be surprised that that singular step may be the breakthrough step that you have long waited for. Note this; it is never over until you have willingly agreed that it is over.

For the people that are determined to succeed, they do not see failure, neither are they prepared to quit. They resolve within their mind that it is success or nothing, and they will stop at nothing to achieve the success even if it means taking one more step and hoping against hope. When the only option left for you is to take another step, you will be surprised at the strength with which you will take that step. As a matter of fact, you cannot know the true strength of anyone and what they are capable of until being strong is the only option left.

Many of the people that you see as successful did not succeed at the first attempt. Some of them had to try over and again and even failed repeatedly but they never gave up, rather they were able to still give it another step until success is achieved. Take the man Colonel Harland Sanders who later created the KFC fast food at his old age as an example. He failed repeatedly in almost everything he ventured into but he never gave up on life. He kept taking steps after steps and finally, Kentucky Fried Chicken was birthed. If he had given up or did not take another step when he failed the last time, he would have missed out of something beautiful - KFC.

To the determined mind, a failed attempt is just another opportunity to take a step further and to try again. When others may be seeing failure or failed attempts as a stumbling block, the person that is already prepared his mind for success will see them as stepping stone to leverage on to take one more step. I remember a particular statement that was made by one of my mentors a few years back in response to one of his mentees that suffered a major failure in life. He told him:

Try again, keep trying, don't stop trying, take another step, repeat the step. One day, failure will get tired of you.

It is worthy to note that no one achieves a milestone success by accident, they worked for it through thick and thin before they got it. If you think that success will fall on your laps on a platter of gold without doing anything, you may wait in vain. For success to come and for it to be sustained, there is a need for you to fulfil certain conditions. One of it is not to quit at the face of challenges. Note; challenges are not optional, neither do you have a choice whether it will come or not. It definitely will. All you need to do is to resolve never to give up at the face of it. Trust me, no challenge that comes to you is actually bigger than you, if you cannot overcome them, it simply means that you did not prepare yourself well for it.

Challenges are like the examinations of life which you have to face and pass for you to access the next phase of your life. In your school for example, at the end of the semester, there is a need for you to write the semester exam in order for you to access the next semester. The purposes of the exam are to prove that you have satisfactorily fulfilled the demands of the present semester, and that you are ready for the next semester. If a student does not do well in the exam and refuses to re-sit it, he will not progress in his academics. Similarly, in life, if you do not take further steps when things seems to be moving in rough manner, you may not overcome that situation.

Always remember that if someone fails at an attempt or while trying out something new, it does not make him a failure as long as he does not remain in the failure and he is willing to try again.
