TGI……..Everyday!!!!! Today’s Daily Word is dedicated to acting like a duck! I know you’re looking at the title in confusion and wondering if I’m on something but let me explain. Today’s Daily Word is really dedicated to handling pressure and staying calm! If you ever really observed a duck you would notice that on the surface the duck is poised, calm, and under control. If you ever looked underneath though, you would see that he is paddling like a madman to stay above water!!! Be like that!!! Understand that any obstacles or any pressure that may be happening aren’t really obstacles or pressure!! They are exactly what you need to get you to your next level!! Instead of panicking and acting distressed keep your poise and calm! Underneath be working as hard as you can to get to where you need to go but do it with so much grace and understand that you have nothing to worry about! The pressures that you are or are not going through is all your doing! Your thoughts of today determine your life of tomorrow so the more you concentrate on where you want to be the more you will realize that everything will be just fine!! Never be weary! The Struggle stops at the moment you say it does!! Nothing can stop you!! The sooner you realize that fact, the sooner you will begin to enjoy your bliss!!!
“Be like a duck. Calm on the surface, but always paddling like hell underneath.”
“The pursuit, even of the best things, ought to be calm and tranquil.”
-Marcus Tullius Cicero
“Having guts” means, being graceful under pressure
“Pressure is a word that is misused in our vocabulary. When you start thinking of pressure, it’s because you’ve started to think of failure.”
“The only pressure you’re under is the pressure you put on yourself.”
“Never be in a hurry; do everything quietly and in a calm spirit. Do not lose your inner peace for anything whatsoever, even if your whole world seems upset.
-St. Francis de Sales
“The secret of success is to be in harmony with existence, to be always calm to let each wave of life wash us a little farther up the shore.”
“The pressure of adversity does not affect the mind of the brave man… It is more powerful than external circumstances.”
