When is enough....enough?
How do you know when you've had enough?" Enough of anything? ' As much as you need 'or 'As much as is required'. This question can be applied to every aspect of your life.....when is enough food, enough? When is enough money, enough? When are enough doubts, enough? When are enough tries at anything, enough? When are enough lies, enough?
We have all been in one situation or another in our lifetime where we questioned ourselves....our determination....our dedication.....our focus...our commitment....
They say the key to success is to get up one more time than you get knocked down. This is often very true. But, sometimes, if you keep getting knocked down....maybe that's not a door but a brick wall that you are trying to go through. Perhaps that is not the direction that you are meant to go.
I have taken many paths in my life...some ended up in 'a bed of roses ' (so to speak), while others ended up in quicksand...sinking faster than I could back paddle. So how do you know when to keep going and when to detour? Having a clear picture of what you are striving for is the first step. Then much like a road trip, look at your final destination and decide..can I walk, drive or fly to my goal? Pick one and start travelling. Keep checking your 'map'and evaluate your progress.
Like a road trip, many of us pack too much luggage. Is all that 'luggage' really necessary? Start to ask yourself some tough questions....Is what I am doing right now moving me towards my destination or am I throwing myself into another brick wall? If you have been dieting forever and not losing weight.. when is enough, enough? What needs to change? If you know what you want but your self doubts are keeping you stalled.....when is enough, enough? What carry on luggage do you need to leave behind? When someone's behavior has gone too far but you've made excuses for them too many times...when is enough, enough?
Only you can answer these questions. Only you know which brick walls you need to walk away from. Only you know when enough is enough. But, if you need help opening that door.....we're here.
