»You have come back power«

by Shylet Noma Clint Mncube, February 6, 2018

You have comeback power

Most of the times when things happen to us, we tend to allow them to define us and we eventually get lost in them, as it happens we have the choice to allow it to control us or we do otherwise. In that process we feel useless but the recipe is in the process.

I am a great example of this article, when I look back I don’t even know how I came back from those deep holes and this does not mean I will not fall into them again but it clearly means I have come back power that is why I can still share my experiences.

What did I do?

There is this popular saying that “it’s not the number of times you fall but the number of times you get back up when you fall”. And getting back after a fall is what defines a comeback power.

This power is available to all humans including you.

I had a desire to comeback because I always remember that once I give up on my dreams, no one will live them for me. It’s all up to me... So I soldier on, I keep moving forward.

It doesn’t matter the nature or the number of defeats, failures, rejections, challenges or disappointments you have experienced or currently experiencing. You can always pick yourself up, comeback stronger and fight till you win.

To quote the words of my mentor, leadership expert, life coach, and my uncle as I call him Les brown, “When life knocks you down, try to land on your back. Because if you can look up, you can get up. Let your reason get you back up.”

I concur to that statement because I know You Can. All power has been given to you, to navigate unsuccessful situations. You have the power to find your way back onto the path leading to your dreams. Yes! You have comeback power.

Move from that comfort zone and launch a comeback, for your race is a winnable one. Remember that life begins at the end of your comfort zone’.
Now is the time to bury the fear, resurrect faith, exercise it and unleash your greatness! Get up, shake yourself up, we all fall down; it did not start with you or will it end with you. Put on that smile and maintain your mind-set with a positive attitude. You are truly born to win! Stay motivated!
