Hardships help reveal your potential

The road may have turns...it may have wholes...but when you keep sight at you final destination...you will reach it...it might take longer but you will arive there...

Ever felt like life is being evil to you? Like you do not deserve anything bad that is taking place in your life? Felt like you ran out of luck and you were cursed to spend your life suffering? Apart from where you want to be, what you want to become and with whom you want to share your life? Did you ever blame the situation? Blame the misfortunes? Wished your life was different? Benn jelous of somebody else?

Well, if you can answer with yes to at least three of the questions above,then you are wrong! Your journey through life has molded you for the greater good. It was exactly what it needed to be. It was exactly what you had to go through in order to learn a lesson that is gonna be useful in your future. If you've taken wrong turns. If you have rambled around, wondering what you were supposed to do with your life...don't bother worrying about it! This time isn't lost. None of the days or the years in your life are lost! It took every situation you have encountered to bring you to the now...the present moment. And you know what? Now is exactly the right time. It is not earlier, it is not later! You are just on time!

Don't blame the obstacles that are thrown on your way. Just like in sports, you are forced daily to endure harder and tougher workouts, in order to gain strength, and be better tomorrow.

That's what I like about life and sports. They have so much in common. In both you are supposed to overcome something that will test your limits, your will, dedication, and perseverence! But there is nothing wrong with that. You are not cursed!;)

If you are having a hard moment, probably you are thinking that you've been punished and fate is against you. But think about the basketball player, the football player or some other athlete, that is out there sweating, hurting, pushing through his limits. He might think that the coach has a grudje on him...but the truth is far different. The coach just sees his potential! He just makes sure he will help his player, to become what he could- to reach his full potential. It is just that the things worth living are hidden behind a lot of hard work, bumps, obstacles and other things you might not like facing...but if you hang on and believe, it will be worth it!

Here is just a video I watched yesterday. Watch it, because I thin my words would belittle it...
