When you decide there’s no going back, the only way left to go is forward.
Sharks literally can not go backwards or they will die. Any time a shark moves backwards water comes into their gills and interferes with “the respiratory process leading to death.”
Not only that, but their body structure makes it almost impossible to swim backwards even if they wanted to. So going forward is the only option for a shark.
What if you had the attitude of a shark in your daily life? What if you decided that going backwards is not an option and that you will keep pushing forward, or die?
This is the mindset of successful people. This is the mindset of people who’ve decided that they will overcome and be victorious over ANY circumstance no matter how unexpected or troublesome it may be.
This is because those individuals refuse to go back in the dark place that caused them so much pain and that they will do anything to ‘see the light’. So perhaps the next time you reach an obstacle or hurdle in your life, think like a shark.
Completely remove going backwards from your psyche, and like a shark, keep moving forward.
