"It isn’t the mountains ahead to climb that wear you out; it’s the pebble in your shoe."


Mohammad Ali, born Cassius Marcellus Clay, Jr., was born on January 17th 1942 and died on June 3rd 2016.  He was aged 74. .

From 61 fights he won 56; 37 wins with a knockout.  Olympic Gold Medallist, Sport’s Personality of the Century, Hollywood Walk of Fame etc; that’s incredible!  Although a colourful past also he was extremely motivational.

His mind-set was always on the importance of positivity and belief.  Striving for that all is well mentality and taking ownership and responsibility.

We can be our own worst enemies with our thoughts and actions.  So really it isn’t the ‘what’ and how hard it is that can cause us to fail or be impacted, but our headspace and attitude towards it.

This can be from our need to control situations or others to our struggle with accepting and letting things be.

So we can choose to focus on the negative and get burdened by this; keep being pulled down by it and end up in pain.  Or we can take responsibility for what is happening; and ourselves; and take out the pebble from our shoes that are causing us the pain.

How do we do this?  By looking at ourselves honestly and then taking responsibility for our actions and decisions.  Working on them whenever things come up and being brave enough to do whatever it takes.

The idea isn’t to do this perfectly by the way; it’s just to do it.  So expect there will be losses; but the more committed and positive, the more the losses turn into wins and then into knockouts!

Wishing you a lovely day.

Blessings to you!
