All you need is a plan, the roadmap, and the courage to PRESS ON to your destination.

Earl Nightingale

How many of us have experience hardship and difficulty that keep pushing us down? How many times we are on the verge of giving up our dreams? I believe we all have ask ourselves many time, is it all worth it to go through the all this? This can be your 3rd time retaking the same exam, this can be 5th bank you have apply for your loan or rather this can be your 10th time trying to reach your dreams… Many of us may give up at some point of the journey. However, the secret of achieving your true potential is to keep PRESSING ON.

Press on, do not stop, do not linger in your journey, but strive for the mark set before you.

When I first started to learn playing the guitar that my father gave to me, there were no sound coming out. I realize one main difficulty for a beginner like us before is that we can’t press on the strings hard enough till it is able to make a sound. Furthermore, each time when we practice pressing the string harder, the skin on our fingertip will start to tear. At this point, most of my friends gave up as they see it is not worth it. However, the thing is this, each time when we are pressing, each time our skin is torn off from our finger, there is always a new and improve skin come to replace. The process will continue till that one fine day, our finger is strong enough to press and guitar will begin to sound.

In our life as well, when we continue to persevere and keep pressing on during the time of challenge, our old ways of thinking and mistakes will start to tear, and a new and improve version of yourself will begin to take place. In our words, each time we go through a difficulty, we are leveling up ourselves. Very soon, for there will come a day, just as how the guitar earlier will begin to sound, our dreams and goals will begin to turn into reality. Today, no matter what phrase you are going through in your life, I encourage you to continue to keep PRESSING ON TOWARDS YOUR DREAMS and GOALS, and one day, you are more than able to achieve it.
