With several years work about to come to fruition in the form of my first book and a supporting business to boot, I am in the midst of one of the most exciting periods of my working life.
Yet, in spite of all the potential, the relentless demands and unexpected obstacles over the years has come at much cost – sapping my energy to a point of exhaustion.
What has exacerbated this further is that while there is so much potential, success is most certainly uncertain – and I have had to dig deep to discover renewed reserves to keep going.
They say that ‘the tide turns at its lowest ebb’ and ‘the darkest hour is right before the dawn’ – so in life’s marathon we should never lose sight of our inner most intentions – our bedrock within. When every fibre of our being tells us to give in, we need to keep going with unflinching resolve and single-minded intention – the tide so often turns when we least expect it.
Question: What is your life’s marathon at the moment and what is your inner most intention that will keep you going even through your darkest hour?
