MLK says “If you can’t fly then run, if you can’t run then walk, if you can’t walk then crawl, but whatever you do you have to keep moving forward.”
In life, things come & things go. It’s easy to become complacent and get comfortable with our current position. Whether it’s in our professional or home life we often find ourselves “stuck in a rut” living comfortable in the valley rather than trying to climb the mountain.
It’s easy to travel the road of least resistance. It’s easy to come home from a long day of work and lounge on the couch. It’s easy to wake up late & go through the motions of the day. It’s challenging to keep moving forward. To make that extra phone call, go on that late night appointment, wake up early & exercise. But the reward of pushing forward far outweighs the results of comfortability & complacency.
It’s better to take a small step forward rather than no step at all. At the end of the day you are either moving forward or backward, there is no in between. The actions you do/or don’t take are either pushing you towards your goals or further away from your goals. Life is much like a river, when the water is flowing it is good, but as soon as it stops, it grows stale. Recognize that you are in control of your own destiny. The end result is based specifically on whether or not you kept moving forward or backward. Nurture the strength inside you, dig deep into your why, find the power God created within you & let it ignite the fire the forces you to take massive action.
Don’t give up. Keep moving forward. One day at a time, keep moving forward. Stay positive & keep moving forward. When you fall on your face trying something new- keep moving forward. When you say the wrong thing to a prospect- keep moving forward. When you are tired because you woke up at 5am to crush yourself goals, keep moving forward. In all that you do... keep moving forward.
It’s okay to go at your own pace, just keep moving forward. You have to make the right choices & just keep moving forward.
Your failures and successes don’t matter what matters is that you learn & keep moving forward.
So I have 1 action step for you today... no matter what- no matter how hard, far, or long: I challenge you to KEEP MOVING FORWARD.
