Kinetic—You are a force of nature with the ability to move in and around obstacles. Don’t let one discouraging experience stop you from pursuing any of your dreams.
An object at rest has potential energy. However, an object in movement, in any direction has kinetic energy. I am not an expert on kinetics. I am, however, an expert in giving up when “obstacles” stand in my way of a goal. I have a list of things that I want to achieve but I have allowed obstacles to stand in my way. I admit, I’m a work in progress and I’m working my package but when I’m disappointed by a setback, I stop moving.
If you have a dream, doing nothing will not get you any closer. Movement in any direction will produce the energy (excitement) you need to reach your goal.
Movement x Excitement + Hard Work = Success
Some people think that the path to success is straight with no detours. There are multiple detours, setbacks and failures along the road to success. Even when there’s failure, use the momentum to continue to move forward. The answer won’t always be clear and you will have to think unconventionally to overcome obstacles and that’s okay. Don’t stand still. Don’t give up. Keep moving!
