Pushing Through

Sometimes we consider certain things worth doing, we resolve to do them, we imagine reaping the dividends of doing them, we keep going about our usual business with the anticipation that we will soon be done doing them, only to realise that days, weeks, months or even years have passed and we never got around to do them.

Could this be true with you?

Can you remember anything you still have not pushed yourself to finish even though you considered it to be worth doing?

Trust me, you are not alone in this. But that should not be your consolation; if you do not take responsibility of the situation, you will keep hovering around the same spot. Certain things cannot be accomplished without consciously pushing through.

Probably you do not consider the implications of not doing them to be life threatening. Maybe you do not imagine yourself to be in a big mess; having numerous tasks unattended or a pile of dreams unaccomplished.

Could it be because there is nobody on your neck demanding that you deliver?

Is it because it is your own thought or idea and nobody else knows about it?

Assuming that it was someone else that paid you to do exactly the same thing, would you have lingered this long without delivering?

The truth is that great things are never accomplished without a conscious effort to forfeit trivial things. There must be some pushing through.

Everyday comprises of 24 hours and it is from it that we must carve out the time to contribute positively to all that matters to us.

You will definitely need to make some adjustment to your routine before certain things can be accomplished. Either you borrow some time from a less important activity or you completely eliminate time wasters. You can also consider aligning with people who will contribute positively either by moral support or collaboration.

Successful ventures are painstakingly built. You must make a conscious effort to carve out time and breakout from certain routine to exercise yourself in the direction that will bring you accomplishment and fulfilment. That’s what I call; pushing through.

So what has kept you from exploring that idea?

What has prevented you from taking the necessary action?

What will stop you from taking that trip today?

Why wouldn’t you just place that call right away?

Wouldn’t you sit by your table and clear the backlog immediately?

I think you should push until life becomes as beautiful as it can be for you and for everyone.

If it will give you joy and make life better for others then go ahead and do it.

I know you can do it.

Just do it!

About teeceecounsel

Who am I really? Can that be defined yet? Probably by the time I'm long gone and all the pieces of my activities are compiled and analysed then you can know what you want to know about me. Meanwhile, I write. Not because I love writing but because I love people. I love to care and love to share. I'm a deep thinker and I love to believe in the impossible. The ideal is attainable and a shot at it must be given. Don't say 'It won't work' rather ask 'how will it work? Nobody is ever doomed unless they made the choice. To resist good and to adopt evil is already doom. To loose hope is to choose doom but to believe that every step is a passing phase leading towards your hope is to choose progress. I may go on and on but my posts say it all. I don't force you to agree, I only say enjoy!

  1. LOL, You know, the one word that came to mind Teecee as I read this was “Procrastination”. It is the bestfriend of “laziness” and is a close partner to “apathy”.

    That is my life these days in a nutshell. Trying to ge things done, trying to push myself, leaving some undone, getting some done. That was a great dose of motivation. Thank you for this post 💜
