Facing the Giants and making it!

This is an awesome video. For some reason, it was destined for me to be awake since 5 a.m. after going to bed almost at a quarter to 2 a.m. For those of you who know me well, KNOW that I'm not a morning person, but for some reason, I feel well rested and am ready to start my grind.

I was awakened by my alarm clock and Steve Harvey actually spoke about "Doing something!". Don't compare your race in life to others because you can't be them and they can't be you. Also, he spoke about the majority of the people who fly first class have grey hair which means that success doesn't come overnight. You have to struggle, you have to actually work and most of all, you must start by DOING SOMETHING!

Since I couldn't go back to sleep, I decided to stay up, and I actually scroll through briefly with Facebok and I found this great quote from Tracey E. Mitchell from Harriet Beacher Stowe that summarizes everything.

"When you get into a tight place and everything goes against you, till it seems as though you could not hang on a minute longer, never give up then, for that is just the place and time when the tide will turn."~ Harriet Beacher Stowe.

That pretty much summarizes everything that I've been going through lately and I know my fellow Compass Bootcampers feel the same. But don't give up, don't give in and most of all, DO SOMETHING.

I will probably re-post this several times throughout the day because I truly feel this is a message that can change at least 1 person's life. WE can post foolishness and play games on social media but we can't take 5 minutes to post something inspirational or words of encouragement to pour a blessing into someone else's life.

If for some reason you're facing a giant or have been trying to do something and for some reason it hasn't come through, it's time to reach out for help. But it stars by making a change in your life, don't quit and finally DO SOMETHING.
