I particularly like that quote (the title) of Henry Ford. He said “if everything seems to be going against you, remember that the airplane takes off against the wind, not with it”
Now, let me make you realize something.
If a plane takes off with the wind, the plane is subject to anything. The wind can carry it anywhere and might even crash it.
That’s why the plane takes off against the wind, and even when it reaches it’s destination, it lands against the wind.
Here’s my lesson…
Immediately you determine to achieve something or get to your destined location in life, forces will always be against you.
Unlike the airplane whose opposing force is the wind, yours can be discouragement, friends, mockery, frustration, etc.
But if the airplane can arrive at it’s destination amongst all odds and opposing forces in the journey, it means you can also arrive at yours.
When the Plane crashes, people are not happy to hear it. It’s not a good news.
Same with when you give up. When you become depressed at your goals, it’s not a good news. Anyone who knows you will not be happy.
But know this, the journey to success is not going to be easy. You will keep moving against life. You will keep pushing against factors that has the potential of bringing you down.
But good news!!!
It’s not impossible. You can get there.
The lesson of this short post is just to remind you that, the journey to success and achievement will not be rosy and sweet. You must be prepared to face oppositions. Brace yourself. Read books. Grow in knowledge and wisdom. Attend seminars that will enhance you. These are the things that will keep you going.
Bottomline is, you can achieve it. You can get there. But you must be prepared, because you will move against the wind. But you will surely get there.
I hope you are doing great! Please endeavor to stay safe.
Your smile is my inspiration ❤️
