They can hit hard, you can hit harder. You must tell yourself that in your mind, every time, even if you don't believe it's true. What you tell yourself, the mind registers, and what you tell yourself repetitively, the mind believes. Tell yourself you're a winner, and you're on the road to winning. Tell yourself that the past's hurt didn't defeat you, and you will keep on moving. Tell yourself that the future isn't half as scary as it appears, and you'll move into it confidently. If the future turns out otherwise, tell yourself, whatever it throws at you, you'll find a way to make it through and NOT let it beat you down.

Today you go hard. On this day you put in your hardest, irrespective of your previously poor track record. This is the day you put in your hundred percent boost into the Dreamliner-like turbine engine strapped behind you, and propane-propel yourself faster than a drag race car towards your goal with target-locked focus. Today, the chihuahua in you, you transform into a mighty in-pursuit, hunting wolf of epic proportions and chase your dream with the momentum of a thousand African Buffalo stampedes in the Serengeti sun.

Nothing stops you. People may call you crazy and they're absolutely right because you're crazy about your dream and will do everything necessary to get it that much more accomplished by the end of today.

You do not quit. In this moment you turn into a hyper-nuclear power plant several centuries ahead of our time, operating at full capacity in overdrive. Your goal is achieved by the duty you perform for it. Now you're the powerful, influential cabinet with the extensive forms leverage, the foreman & every position in between the implementation of a state directive for higher productivity. That state is you. The directive is your mind controlling the rest of the body. The ruling cabinet is you obeying your subconscious demand of fulfilling your dream. Your subconsciousness, that is said to be roughly 30,000 times more powerful than your awareness, is consciously influenced in part by the words you tell yourself even if you don't believe them, in the conviction that today is your POWER DAY, the start of the week.

Whatever your start of the week is, make this the base of its activities. A powerful start gives you an advantage. You get ahead, gain ground, set the pace. Life happens and it doesn't become possible to keep this up every day, daily. That's OK, when you fall behind again, just remember to not drop below a minimum standard. On the days you lose and get totally knocked out - find something to gain of value, no matter how small or negligible. It thereafter allows you to say, 'I got banged out pretty good, but at least I gained this as well, and with it, I'm going into the fight tomorrow and will try again.' Maintained consistently, it adds up & prevents you from being the complete loser. Even if you lost a billion Dollars and found a Cent on the ground. I would pick it up & MOVE ON! End of.

When people beat you down, they don't think it's wrong. When you consistently fight back and after a period get superior to them, without ever reneging to fight them back and/or prevent them from hitting you again, they call you arrogant & say you're aggressively lusting for trouble, while by sulking they try giving you a guilt trip and at the same time try mobilizing public resentment against you. Some people!

Such is life and these are the things you must do. In this world you either get beat down, or you beat back so ferociously, in the process you become that one person, nobody wants to mess with anymore.

My analogies are metaphorical & I do not support violence, only the defense from unprovoked attacks.
