It Is Your Job

It is important to remember that no one is going to make your dreams come true for you. Nobody can solve your problems or make life happen like you wish. Nobody has that much power to make you change. It is your job to get up every day and work toward the things that are deepest in your heart. It is your duty to persevere even when things get rough, to not quit after one setback, to not let frustration or time stop you from moving forward. It is your task and yours alone to believe in yourself, in a brighter future, and in the fact that you deserve to have a life of dreams. It is your job to pick yourself back up and keep walking through the pain and the trials and though the rough terrain. People can help you back up but they cannot walk for you. Remember to enjoy every step of the journey rather than wishing you were already where you want to end up. Every step has a purpose, has a reason, is a blessing. You learn more from the journey than you do the destination. Savor it all and appreciate the stumbles. It is going to make that view at the top that much more beautiful and rewarding.
