Keep on pushing the wall

By Domenick Epps

Being phenomenal starts with a strong belief system.

God has given to every man a measure of faith, but it is important how you build upon that which you have.

Fear will keep you from moving. Fear will hinder every dream from ever becoming a reality. Regardless of the qualifications that you think you need, the most important is to just do it!

You’ve got to move. And the more you move, the easier it will get, the stronger you will become. You’ve got to be like the Colorado River pressing up against a grand mountain. You’ve got to keep coming. Keep showing up. Keep hitting against it.

Maybe on Day 1 you won’t see progress and maybe Day 10 or even Day 100 will pass, and you still don’t see anything. But keep at it. Keep hammering. Keep being consistent, even when others are laughing at your consistency.

It looks crazy to push up against a wall that others have never seen or imagined coming down, but that’s because all others gave up.

You have to make a decision to show up, even if you are the only one. And before you know it, the world will wonder at your achievements.

Stop wanting a quick fix, and enjoy the process. Greatness is in you. But no one will ever know and experience the full potential of your greatness if you give up on your dreams.

We have the Grand Canyon because the Colorado River didn’t quit.

Stop trying to do a million things good and focus on being great at one. Stop thinking, “What if I strike out?” New York Yankees rookie phenom Aaron Judge led among rookies in strikeouts, but he also led in home runs.

Just keep coming to the plate and swing with all that you’ve got. Give your energy, resources and focus to that one area and give it all you’ve got. Success has your name on it!
