I wanted to type this post all in caps because the normal font isn’t expressive enough but I figured that might scare a few people.
The reason why most people are comfortable settling for less than the best is because it costs too much to go after what they really really want in life. Depending on your attitude to life, obstacles can be a good excuse for you not to get started or they can be a springboard to show what you are really made of.
Maybe you have failed a few times. Use your failures as a spring board.
Maybe no-one believes in you. That’s ok, it’s your job to believe in you first before anyone else does.
Maybe it feels like it will take forever till you get there. Remember, Rome wasn’t built in a day. Stay faithful.
What you focus on you magnify. Obstacles are what you see when you take your eyes of the goal. Stay focused on the goal.If you quit just because you saw obstacles, it means you didn’t want it bad enough. Many people end up at average because it’s too costly and it makes them uncomfortable to chase after their goals.
So what do you do when there are all these barriers stopping you from getting where you want to be? Simply make up in your mind that you are going to do this no matter the cost. Set your mind and keep it set. If you want the best; think like the best, act like the best.
There is nothing new under the sun. What was done shall be done again.So gird up your loins and focus. You are not the first person to feel like giving up, neither will you be the last. But whatever you do I plead with you do not give into that temptation to quit. One day you will look back and realise it was all worth it.
So let those sleepless night, those thick books, negative commentary, delays and failures be your spring board.
I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.
