MOVE / by Bose Tobit

Sometimes we make ourselves believe that we need a little push. Someone or something to motivate us to achieve something. So, we go around trying to get support from friends, family or anyone. We pitch our ideas to everyone and hope someone will agree with us. All we need is the ‘you are good to go” nod then we know we are on the right track. It’s okay to seek advice. It’s okay to ask for peoples’ opinion. But it becomes a problem when you find yourself waiting for peoples’ opinion before you can make a move. People are afraid to take risks these days. Everyone wants a manual on how to live life. What do I do? Where do I go from here? You find yourself shopping for advice on social media.

The push you need is in you. If you are constantly seeking peoples’ opinion, I want you to take a moment to ask yourself “when am I going to seek my opinion?”. Everyone is not going to agree with you and that is okay. The only person that needs to agree with you is you. The only support you need is you. You are enough. Your strength is enough. Stop doubting yourself and get moving.

There is a chance that the move you are about to make won’t work out or maybe it is moving too slow. The result is taking forever to show. But you can’t give up. If you give up, who will continue for you? It is your journey. You keep moving, you don’t stop. When you go on a journey, you encounter a lot on the way. Do you stop halfway because you hit an obstacle, or do you figure out how to continue the journey? That is the same thing with life. You hit a rock and it looks impossible to continue. You stand up and keep moving. Push yourself to do better. You cannot move forward if you keep waiting for peoples’ approval or opinion. It will slow you down. Go for it. If it doesn’t work out, learn from it. No matter what happens, never stop pushing forward. Be on the move.

The push you need is in you
