Whether you run marathons, parent children, attend classes or run a business, you will face obstacles that are no fun to overcome. Perhaps you contend with a disability or chronic illness. You might have a difficult supervisor or professor. The baggage you carry from past trauma or bad relationships could be a weight on your shoulders. Life may have disappointed you, leaving you feeling hopeless and helpless.
You are neither hopeless nor helpless.
You are in control of your own choices! You can decide to do difficult things. Do not allow circumstances to determine your future.
Roxy knows a basic principle of life, that work is required if goals are to be met. If it were easy, everyone would do it. He could have stayed in bed this morning. He wanted to sleep. His body probably needed the rest. It hurt to get up and moving. He made a choice to ignore discomfort and do what needed to be done, as successful people all over the world do.
