Do It Anyway Encouragement for Leaders

As I look over my life, I’ve got to admit, sometimes I get scared. I hesitate. I lose focus. I run out of momentum and the desire to keep pushing forward. Have you ever felt that way? Many times as leaders we give up. And sometimes, we don’t even realize we have.

If you lack courage, it’s okay. We all get knocked down. But where we go wrong, is not standing back up again. So today, whatever it is that you are shying away from, I have have three words for you.

Do it anyway. 

do it anyway

Do It Anyway

When you are scared to enter the ring, enter the ring anyway.

When you are tired, but still have work to do, keep at it anyway.

When you are defeated and your spirit is oppressed, fight anyway.

When you try and fail, and fail again, pick yourself up anyway.

When your hope is gone and your strength has faded, believe anyway.

When no one appreciates your hard work, persevere anyway.

When God doesn’t seem to hear your prayer, pray anyway.

When life gets tough and all is dark, live anyway.

When your dream seems impossible to fulfill, dream anyway.

When you don’t feel like doing what needs to get done, do it anyway.

Friend, this is the life of a leader: to face the torrent of pressure from all sides. Leaders enter the ring, keep at it, fight, pick themselves up, believe, persevere, pray, live, and dream. Twitter_logo_blue

Leaders do it anyway!

    Excellent post Wes. Great connection with words to motivate ….I believe somedays we need to meditate on motivational word play to keep ourselves inspired and in the ‘game’…some days and weeks are just going to be that way..never give in…never surrender!!! Smile when you think you’ve had enough and run back into the fray eyes open …bring it on!!

    As I was saying. I give all of myself to others without wanting anything in return. That’s who I am. No one can change that and believe me people have tried. There where a lot of incidents that occurred in my life that, well I can not change and I can truly say that’s why I am the woman I am. Could I be a leader? Your darn right I can! I’ve suffered enough to be one. Without any regrets or any pity for myself or anyone else. People say they, they could write a book if there lives they’ve lived. I can right a novel. There is nothing in my brain that I can not pull out of it that’s not an answer to someone’s question or someone’s pain. I’ve felt them all.
    Being a leader means you care for the people you lead to the point that you take them by the shirt and run with them to the that stopping pount , you guide them and they guide you . it a relationship of give and take so at the end your both winners.
