Did that lifting Cycle work, No – Why?⠀
That relationship failed – Why?⠀
I didn’t get that promotion – Why?⠀

It’s only once we have done, We can look back and question Why?⠀

But if we don’t move forward then We can never look back and we’ll just go round doing the same old thing hoping for different results…⠀

Don’t be afraid to live forwards…⠀

There is no longer any turning back

‘From a certain point onward there is no longer any turning back. That is the point that must be reached.’ – Franz Kafka⠀

But something happens after a certain point… Life as you used to know it isn’t the same anymore, Going back would be like seeing the world in Black and White every day…⠀

Once you’ve hit that point – Your pretty much Unstoppable and as long as you keep pushing through, You will eventually find that point of no return.

It’s the size of the fight in the dog

‘It’s not the size of the dog in the fight, it’s the size of the fight in the dog.’ – Mark Twain⠀

A documentary on Netflix – Zion is about a guy Born without legs and stuck in foster care for years – You wouldn’t blame him for feeling sorry for himself, But he doesn’t he takes up wrestling…⠀

Born without legs but has a burning desire to wrestle – When the desire is bigger than the circumstance, That’s one dog you don’t want to bite you…⠀

How big is the fight in your dog or is it dying because you’re starving it from your desires.⠀
