For the rocket to launch upwards, it needs to have a launchpad. The launchpad is design in such a way to support and set up the rocket for launch. One of its function is to hold the rocket in place before take off and to withstand the heat and flames coming out of the rocket. Without those launchpad, the rocket will not take off because it is not set up in the right place. Regardless of how powerful the rocket is, it will not take off without the launchpad.
In the same manner in our life, sometimes before we want to launch towards our goals and expectation in life, we need to set up in our launchpad. Without being place on a strong foundation, we may not be able to launch upwards, but maybe side wards or not launch at all. Our launchpad sometimes is having just one opportunity and favour in our life and it is sufficient enough for us to launch towards our dreams. One contract sign is enough for us to start our business or one client comes is enough for us to start our career.
But sometimes, our launch pad is not always made out of opportunity but difficulty. Sometimes, a failure in our business is a launch pad for us to start something new or change direction in order to bring the business to the next level. I always remember this quote from a minister that it is not setback but a setup. In whatever difficulties or hardship in our life, remember that it is not a setback, but it set up, it is our launchpad for us to go further, higher and better in our life. Hence, do not just view that launch pad is made out of opportunity but sometimes launchpad is made out of difficulty. Both launchpads serve the same purpose which is to set you up and propel you to the next level. Sometimes a defeat is the launchpad we need to launch us to our victory in life. Remember, whatever you are going through, it is your launchpad.
There’s always time to launch your dreams.Maat Morrison
