When Knocking Isn’t Enough: PUSH!


When things don’t go the way we think they should, most of the time we toy with the idea of  retreat. We forget that every goal comes with a price – and that price means overcoming the hurdle of disappointments. Each one of us has learned how true that is. We all have experienced at one time or another when our expectations were not met, and often led us to a gloomy place. That’s human! But, the good thing is, from our failures we are also compelled  to stand up from where we have fallen and charge onward to victory.

Life is about having BIG dreams, taking the risk to chase those dreams, and then seing them through to the end. While there’s always no guarantee that we can easily  get what we want,  we can always tell ourselves, “The door to opportunity – and success –  is always labeled ‘push‘.”

 “You must not for an instant give up the effort to build new lives for yourselves. Creativity means to push open the heavy, groaning doorway to life.” – Daisaku Ikada

* Lesson learned after last week’s post : My husband  told me while I was writing my draft on “Hope” last weekend , “Don’t toot your horn until the tuba player arrives.” However, stubborn as I have always been, I answered, “Yes, but it’s not over until the voluptous woman sings. True enough, I tooted when I should have just muted.  Lesson learned, learning curve, now straight.

  1. And sometimes we find that the push doesn’t even have to be that hard.

    • True, sometimes the idea of “push” just scared us the more because we are afraid of another disappointment. But we should not lose our heart. As they always say, “no pain, no gain…”

  2. I almost feel like you wrote this article for me. Thanks for the ‘push’ this morning. Good advice, by the way.
