If your tired of starting over stop giving up.

“I feel like everyone has a purpose when they are brought into this world.” Said Elise Swanson

Some are meant to have everything handed to them, and some are meant to be challenged, and have to work hard in life to succeed.

Some people are meant to fail drastically, and some aren’t meant to fail at all.

“I feel as if the amount of effort you put in now will determine how easy or difficult you make your future out to be.” said Swanson.

Not only is it necessary for you to have a dream, it’s essential.  Having a dream to work towards everyday gives you a certain purpose in life.

Something to strive for, to work harder and get better at, to develop and get closer to your true self. You need to understand what works and what doesn’t, and you need to push yourself a different way everyday.

Motivation is like a light switch its always on or it never is, it doesn’t go off and on when one specific person is watching. Its constant. Life is constantly changing, sometimes you’re up and sometimes you’re down. It’s a roller coaster.

There’s times where everything can go wrong and it will, but during those dull moments are where the growth happens.

Anyone can feel good when their healthy, when their bills are paid, and they are in healthy relationships, but it’s what happens when you are on the other side of that spectrum. Anyone can have faith under those circumstances, but it’s when you have gone through a tragedy where you begin to grow as a person.

“Are you going to let it hold you down, and destroy your life like it plans to do, or are you going to build upon it? That’s up for you to decide.” Explains Swanson. Everyone has obstacles that life throws at them, for instance when you may not have much, if any support from a parent, you feel like no one is on your side.

Parents are not suppose to solve your problems but they sure shouldn’t let you go at ‘em alone.

Even though as a child forgiving isn’t the easiest thing to do, you learn as you grow up that you have to forgive people and move on. You have to separate yourself from everyone else and show why you’re different.

I have no choice but to come back, and I’ll be better and stronger because of it.  I am able to say I let it go, I moved on, I was the bigger person.

It doesn’t matter what happened to you, it matters how you handled it, and had the adversity to overcome in that situation.

If you want something, you can’t count the cost, if you count the cost you might quit or surrender. At some point in time, you get to a point where you don’t count the cost or the breaths that it takes, you just want to do whatever it takes to get what you want.

Whatever it takes to win.

Even if winning is losing.

Once you as a person make a decision.

You’ll go all in,  no matter how much it hurts, or no matter who tells you you can’t. you are not quitting, you aren’t going to quit until you get there.

I know I made my decision after watching my mom struggle or some say fail repeatedly I will be successful, I’ll continue doing things I know that work for me. As Albert Einstein once said , “Forget everything that has happened, and make the rest of your the best your life can be.”
