Decide to Succeed

Last Update: July 20, 2019

Life will always throw you curve balls. Sometimes they will be a death of a loved one, other times it will be a bounced check. No matter what the situation, you can choose to be successful.

Tina and I have had quite a few obstacles in our path for what seems to be a ridiculous period now. They vary from illness to a bitter ex who has made it his purpose in life to cause us misery. The options are not all that many in our minds though. We know what we want and we know that WA offers it.

We have not been as active as we would like to be for a while, but we do try to get here on a semi-regular basis and greet new people and comment on sites and posts. Admittedly, we are lacking in production, and not an excuse, but a reason is the amount of time that everything else seems to be taking from us.

We have fallen into the "habit" of not being as present as we need to be, and that is a problem that we are currently addressing. The purpose of this post is to help others be encouraged that no matter what life throws at you, you still have a choice. I know that life seems harder for some than for others, but we all have our struggles and no one is better or worse or greater or more important.

My late dad shared many thoughts and ideologies with me and many stuck. "Life is personal" is by far one of my favorites. What matters to one person may well not matter to the person next to you, and vice versa. I know how things are effecting Tina and I and I know that even though we may still have several things to overcome, we will be successful here within WA. I should say continue to be successful, we have already achieved more than I would have imagined in less than a years time.

Do not allow life to suck the joy and success out of you. You can decide to succeed.


Many Blessings and much success ~ Frank & Tina (free4life)

You have no idea how much I needed this today, I have been letting someone very close to me have too much influence on my mood and the direction of my day. I have found that if I stay with the positive thoughts and ignore the negative, I accomplish quite a bit with few obstacles. Listening to how bad someone feels and all our problems first thing in the AM does not make a happy OR productive me. I will take any advise, the headphones are making him angry.haha

Hi Free4life, Frank & Tina, thank you for your encouraging post ans we all know that Life happens to all of us, so take it with a pinch of salt sometimes and not take seriously, you have to laugh a little, play a little, have fun, work a little, have joyous moments at times and yes other times there will be sadness, it is Life and we have to sift & sort through those curve balls and focus on what is important. Best of luck with your endevours.

Life is personal! When people can rely on others making statements and those statements sticks, what they have said is priceless!
I have learned a lot already and I haven't been in training for very long. My website is the next level....working on that level!

I really like that thought, "Life is personal". Thank you for sharing. Parents are definitely special people with so much wisdom to share. I only wish I would have realised that fact at a younger age. I would be a much smarter man today, probably living a much different life.
Thank you for sharing your thoughts.

You and me both, if only I would have understood sooner what my parents were trying to say. Better late than never though I think.

Thanks, Frank and Tina. The road to success is always about the mindset. Entrepreneurs take courses on personal development and motivation to train their conscious mindset. If the mindset is set correctly then the path to get there finally arrives because they did something about their mindset. Yes, there are always some struggles and hurdles to get through to get there. It means we don’t give up even if we felt like it. We are not perfect, businesses not perfect, always a learning curve in any business. Thanks for writing this motivational blog post. Emotions take over and out frustration we give up. That ruins the mindset, got to get the grit and avoid allowing unruly emotions from taking dominance on the ability to succeed.

Thank you so much, Nichola. We are our own worst enemies much of the time. If we can only hang on and push forward, we will find what we are looking for.

Good post. I have encountered some of the things that you stated but not as many as others. Nobody unless they have been through it will ever understand what you are going through. For the most part it is family that carries you through and gives you the strength you need during those times.

Good Luck and I wish you all well.

Very true story life can be hard and challenging sometimes. Keep a positive attitude and stick to your goals. Don't let anything keep you from reaching your success. Being a Christian pray is a big part in my life. I pray for guidance and also to make the right choices. Many times are choices may be completely wrong and we have to do things totally different. Prayers for your future success. Keep me updated on your progress.

Hi Frank,

Many thanks for this inspiring piece.

It is certain that life will throw some stuff at us in the course of living. I believe those are the things that make life itself interesting, else we would have been as robots.

Most times, life challenges push us to productivity because survival is man's foremost concern.

Even as a person of faith, I know that God permit some troubles to stir up His gift in us.

I want to encourage you to keep hope alive. What happens to you is not as important as how you respond to it.

May the wisdom of God continue to sustain you.

Best of luck to you and Tina.

Segun

Thank you for sharing your personal experience and wise perspectives.

To me this is why WA is such a great value. It is not just the financial promise but the global oneness of individuals from different backgrounds coming together on a platform of trust, acceptance, sharing, caring and love.

We know we have a place where our dreams can be fulfilled, if we make up our minds to stay put and succeed.

From now on you will be more than conquerors!

Onward and upward ...

Thanks for sharing. You make me realize that I am not alone in my struggle towards success. Keep striving to be an overcomer. You have the right attitude, just keep working and one day you look back at this and smile because it wasn't that bad, that you made it anyway despite all the obstacles.
Sending blessings your way.
