…Making Your Life Count with Dr Humphrey Mutiti

The words “Give” and “Up” should never be concurrently in your mind. Relatively, the word NO shouldn’t even be in your dictionary. Without jumping into the details, simply being part of the human race puts you in a very special group.

You are one of the most resilient and strongest species to have ever walked on the earth. Your species has survived thousands of years and you have monopolized every single species on earth by getting right to the very top of the food chain.

Just by being a Human, you are practically legendary. That said when you zoom in to human individuals – life is difficult and when you face setback after setback, problem after problem, it can get very hard to stay positive and keep this same perspective of stability that is found at the end level.

It gets very difficult to remind yourself that you are strong and that you can get through whatever problem you are facing. When life is tough, giving up always seems like the easiest option.

The basic reality is, when you feel like giving up, there is a LOT of untapped inner strength inside of you that you probably haven’t even realized. That is why when you are in a “dark place” it can help to remind yourself of your strengths and your potential so that you can overcome the negativity that creeps into your mind.

Let me share with you simple reminders that will inspire and motivate you in your “dark times” when you just want to stop and give up on whatever you are dealing with.

1. You are alive and you can

There is only one assurance in life and that is death. As long as you are alive you have no excuse to say you can’t. If you put your mind to it, you can do anything – anything is possible.

2. You believe in your dreams

Would you give up on your family, your spouse or your children? Then why would you give up on yourself? You and your dreams are worth more than that. Don’t sell yourself short and don’t let anybody bring you down.

If you can dream it you can do it and your dreams and goals are WORTH PURSUING. There have been millions of dreamers before you and if they had given up the world would not have been the same.

Langston Hughes once said, “Hold fast to your dreams, for without them life is a broken-winged bird that cannot fly.”

3. You have everything you need

Everything you need to reach your goal is already inside of you. You and the person in your life you may look up to or the person who is your role model are genetically 99.99% the same! This might come as a surprise to you but the reality is people who are successful are not very much different than you. So stop making excuses for yourself!

Be thankful for your God-given capabilities and strive for success. You have all the tools inside of you to persevere and keep going.

4. You must inspire others

Who is your biggest role model? Now imagine their life. Doesn’t it seem like they have everything put together and that their life is all in order…Well, this is completely false. The grass does look greener on the other side and the person you call your role model might be under a very huge amount of stress and anxiety. All of us are human.

So when you feel like giving up I want you to remember that someone out there is looking up to you. So surely you might feel weak, you might feel overwhelmed, but when life is tough you must keep going because you are teaching those looking up to you how to properly react when they are tested with difficulties in their life. Become an inspiration for others. Refuse to give up and try your hardest; you never know who is watching. Your hard work and dedication could be the spark that was needed to light the dreams of those around you. You never know who is watching.

5. It’s always the darkest before dawn

Comprehend that the toughest trials are the ones that come right before the breakthrough. So stay persistent because at any given juncture you are at the tipping point and success awaits you.

In closing, your commitment leads to action. Action brings your dream into reality. Your reality stimulates many others watching you from behind.
