What Keeps You Going?

The Dilemma

Isn’t it ironical that the same dreams and aspirations that keeps us moving towards accomplishment at times can also almost drive us nuts? Well, I don’t know about you so I should probably speak for myself.


Sometimes I’m just so fired up to run with my dreams; other times, all I want to do is just sit and not think about them at all. Periods like these can be really draining; several questions run through my mind like ‘am I even sure I made the right decision? Should I just stop already?

Whenever I find myself in this kind of scenario, I simply chill out, calm my nerves and ask myself why I started in the first place. Reminiscing upon your days of beginning can help you overcome periods like this. This is the more reason why you should never begin something on the basis of competing with others because it can’t keep you there long enough.


Trust me; if that is your motivation, then you will wear out fast enough. Whatever it is you find yourself doing, do it because it’s something you are passionate about, not because you want to fit in.

Your drive and motivation is what keeps you going during trying times when you feel like throwing in the towel.

  1. You said it well Sis. I captured that word, ‘Never give up’.
    Whenever I feel like that, I do turn to my phone and some games.

    Thinking whether we are happy, asking ourselves whether we are doing the right things, will convince us we are not.

    Thanks for sharing that.
