Did you see that INCREDIBLE Saints-Vikings game last night? If I’m being honest once halftime hit I was thinking it was a done game (with the Vikes up 17-0) but the Saints came back hard in the second half, giving me serious heart palpitations in the last minute in particular when they were down by ONE point. Vikings fans were getting ready to throw in the towel but in the last few seconds, a catch was made and literally in the last SECOND of the game, a touchdown, and epic ending to the playoff game.
After calming down from the shock and excitement of the game (I may or may not have lost my voice a little from screaming at the TV #football), I started thinking about feelings of discouragement, motivation, and the ups/downs of chasing your dreams/going for the things you want in life. And since we all need a little extra push on Mondays, thought this would be the perfect time to remind you, YOU’VE GOT THIS.
Freaking out about a big presentation you have to give, an interview, or an exam that pretty much defines your whole grade? Down in the fourth quarter? Take a deep breath and remember, YOU’VE GOT THIS.
Feeling discouraged because you didn’t land the deal, get the promotion you were hoping for, or hear the “yes” you wanted? Sometimes nos happen and things don’t go the way you want. And that’s ok.
The important thing is focusing on your why/end goal and continuing to give your all to get across that finish line. As the Aaliyah song goes, “if at first you don’t succeed, dust yourself off and try again.”
Keep on keepin’ on, friends. And remember, YOU’VE GOT THIS!
