You are smarter than a fly

It's not how many you win.  It's how many you show up for.

Allowing circumstances in your life to prevent you from achieving what you want may be a sign you're giving up to soon.  How many times have you tried to achieve something, only to quit at the first sign of difficulty?  Life is filled with obstacles, they are meant to be hard so we can strengthen while trying to get what we want.

When a fly gets stuck in your house, he keeps trying to get outside by bumping into the window repeatly. Have you ever opened the window and attempted to guide the fly towards the opening only to have the fly ignore you? We act exactly like flies sometimes, the belief that if we just keep doing something the same way over and over again will lead us to success drives us mad.

If you were to stop for a second and assess your situations and goals, you will be more likely to think logically of newer and better ways to try and achieve your goals as oppose to doing the same thing over and over.  There is always a way to get what you want, it's up to you to keep trying new ways.

Stop being like a dumb fly, and think more intelligently next time.  This is not the time to give up on what you want so badly.

Stay motivated
