One of the humors of life is when life drops you after you have learned to fly. As humorous as how I can describe it, the experience is definitely not amusing because you will only get to laugh about its hilarity right when you see the blinding light at the end of that dark tunnel of adversity.

I learned of this when I first got into what I thought to be the peak of my career. I was then celebrating a successful telemarketing business surrounded by a gregarious environment, enjoying a flourishing real estate career meeting new people everyday thereby widening my network, and inspiring young minds of 9th graders in the academe. It was stressful but utterly fulfilling.

But one day, that colorful and gleeful day I am so accustomed with slowly loses its color and every pigment of joy faded into a grey soulful journey of my soul. For two years under the debilitating grip of the monstrous hands of depression, I have learned to be still, to trust once more, to surrender and even to fly again.

My story is not unique. You too have your own share of defeat. Inside you are stories and pain nobody knew about. Some people will cry with you but still a number will blastoff a party in your demise. You will gain more friends in your success and your hardships will test how true they are.

Nelson Mandela said, “The greatest glory in living lies not in never falling, but rising everytime we fall.

One morning, overwhelmed with so many debts, I went into my room and whimper. My mom caught me sobbing into tears. I cried because I do not know what to do and how I could bravely face every wounding words heaved at me. But I guess, mothers always knew what to say. She said, “The harder you fall, the higher you bounce back.” And guess what, now that I am doing great, SHE IS RIGHT!

Sometimes you need a strong fall to really know where you stand. You need a big fall to shake-off your ego’s deceptive perception of your own invincibility. You need that humbling humiliation so you are not overcome with pride when your dreams come true. Because the harder you fall, the heavier your heart; the heavier your heart, the stronger you climb; the stronger you climb, the higher your pedestal.

It is in your fall that you learn to weed out excess baggage, prioritize what is really important, seek your true and divine purpose, evaluate your self and discover your untapped potential. And as you learn each of these, you become bolder, you become braver and no one can ever stop you to manifest about that one big dream of yours.

Falling is another way to fly. Get the right attitude because nobody can truly help you except God and yourself.

You can choose to see yourself falling and watch from below OR you can rid yourself off that self-pity and push yourself up.

Today is not your end, it is only the beginning. Rise again and FLY!

Obstacles are those frightful things you see when you take your eyes of your goal.

You are the CREATOR of your own destiny. If you want to make your dreams come true, the first thing you have to do is, WAKE UP.

Always act like you’re wearing an invisible crown. Always take off “t” from the word “can’t” and make it very big “CAN”.

Failure is simply the STEPPING STONE to SUCCESS.

A man who faced many rejections from the newspaper editor; they said he has no talent and yet he become the biggest creator as Walt Disney that we know today.

A man failed 10, 000 times before he made the electric bulb is Thomas Edison.

A man who failed in business at age 21, his sweetheart died at 26, had a nervous breakdown at 27 become the President of the United States – Abraham Lincoln.

Learn from the life’s stories of these people. Turn your negatives into positive. DON’T WAIT. The TIME is always right.

Create a plan for carrying out your desire and begin at once. Whether you are ready or not, put this plan into ACTION. Start your day with a POSITIVE LOVE to take RESPONSIBILITIES.

When your DESIRE is strong enough, you appear to possess SUPERHUMAN POWERS to achieve your DREAM.

Talk to yourself. The most important conversation you will ever have is the one you have with yourself.

Patience, persistence, and perspiration make an unbeatable combination for SUCCESS.

Go for it. Live with it. Think and GROW RICH. 

 

Here is a powerful quote from Brian Tracy, world reknowned speaker and author say about success for others.

 

“If you envy successful people, you create a negative force field of attraction that repels you from ever doing the things that you need to do to be successful. If you admire successful people, you create a positive force field of attraction that draws you toward becoming more and more like the kinds of people that you want to be like.”

 

Most assuredly, you have already read a lot of similes & metaphors written to describe life. We can find it anywhere.

Strikingly enough, our individual description about life is a reflection of how we came to manage our life.

To some of you, this simile that you are about to read will not only talk to your soul but also exactly the game you are playing.

Life is like a baseball game.

If you have gone to one baseball game in your life and were keen to observe how the game is played, you will know that a player waits to strike the ball pitched by the pitcher. The player will try its very best to strike it so hard so the ball will fly high, away from the catchers. As the ball travels to mid-air, the player runs fast to the first base and if the opportunity is still there to the second base, third base, and finally back to homebase.

One homerun. One point for the player’s team.

Life is no different from a baseball game.

You are the player. You strike the ball as hard as you can. This ball is both the opportunity and the challenges that life throws at you. Yes, there are times when you cannot hit the ball. But that’s okay. There is always a second chance.

As you hit the ball, you run to first base. Being the player you focus your attention to the first base. That is your goal. But that is not the entirety of your goal. That is only a part of your goal. So do not go into debt celebrating a party for an accomplishment that is not yet full. It is okay to celebrate, just do not overdo it.

As a player, you do not pick trash on your way to the next base. Or sing or dance. But you try your best to swiftly finagle around the contending team on the field to reach the next base.

On your way to the next goal, do not pick-up bitterness, resentments, blames, anger or hate. Guilt, fear, worry and unforgiveness are a waste of emotions. But often, we pick them a lot thinking that they motivate us to reach our goal. They do not make your travel to the next base easy. They will only burden your plight. And if ever you reach your next goal, they will only limit the happiness you ought to enjoy.

Baseball is an active game. It requires speed, agility, strength and power. You are that player. When you were put in this life, you already have those qualities in you. You have all that you need to have a homerun. The One intelligent source we call God has made you fully equipped.

I did not tell you to be busy. I am telling you to be active. A lot of times you make your life so busy thinking you have accomplished so many things but really the only thing it did is to drain you of your energy and vitality. You did not really have a joyful life at all. And once time is wasted it never replenishes itself anymore.

It is history. Are you writing a good history?

Like a baseball game, there are times when you experience delays and you need to wait. There are times when you get a foul. There are times when you have to repeat from the first base. Do not be surrender your power. That’s part of the game. That’s part of your story of victory.

Learn the kind of game you are playing. If you are one of the players in this baseball game then master that game. Become the star player. Become the winner. Be the champion.
