Bruce Lee once said “I fear not the man who has practiced 10,000 kicks once, but I fear the man who has practiced one kick 10,000 times.” There is great value in repetition. There is great strength in your willingness to try again. However, many of us are guilty of giving up and giving in when things don’t work out the first few times.
For some, you have grown so familiar with your struggle that you have convinced yourself things will never change. For some, your fear of failure prevents you from pushing past your circumstances. For some, you have embraced blame and shame for your lens of life. Can you identify what is holding you back? Allow yourself to reveal the reasons that result in giving up.
Don’t look past today in order to see tomorrow. Do the right thing, right now, and then repeat. Repetition helps transition your actions from the conscious to the subconscious. Repetition trains your brain for healthy habits (or unhealthy). Zig Zigler said “Repetition is the mother of learning, the father of action, which makes it the architect of accomplishment.” So, look for a miracle in your mess. Believe the best in the middle of bad. Know you can do it and you will get through it.
Do the right thing, right now, and then repeat.
