We have those moments in our lives, careers or businesses where we feel we’re completely losing it or getting it all wrong. These moments have things not going smoothly as we had planned, or working perfectly as we would like. Sometimes, things get back on track sooner, but sometimes, they don’t. What should we do when things completely go off course? Should we lose hope and quit, or should we hang on and keep moving?
According to Albert Einstein, “Life is like riding a bicycle; to keep your balance you must keep moving.” No matter how rough the road is, you need to keep pedaling forward, else, you’ll lose balance and might fall off. The same thing is in life. No matter how tough the task is, or how bad the situation looks, you need to give it your very best, or you will fail completely.
You need to keep up with the momentum. It’s the only way through. You had to trust yourself before you could learn to ride a bicycle. Can you remember that moment when the extra support you had wasn’t there anymore and you were left to balance the bicycle on your own?
You had to believe in yourself to keep pedaling forward. Now, you need to trust yourself again. You need to keep pushing to achieve that dream. Quitting is not an option. It’s not in the cards. It never was, and it never will.
