Being strong doesn’t mean you won’t have tough days. It doesn’t mean you won’t have setbacks and disappointments. It does not mean thing will flow smooth everyday. Being strong means that in spite of all the obstacles you encounter you will stand firm and overcome.
You have to keep working at achieving your goals in life. Sometime you are going to feel tired, you may feel discouraged. You may feel like giving up. However hang in there and don’t quit. Many successful people you see today started out with nothing. But they made it, because they persevered and they didn’t quit.
Life is not always going to be easy. No matter how prepared you are disaster can strike when you least expect it. Trust God each day to be that guardian angel protecting you. No matter how great we are or how accomplished, we can’t make it without Him.
So often we hear people complain about their lives. If only I was rich. If only I could afford that big house or that fast car. If only I could afford to take that trip. While you are feeling miserable about your life another person somewhere may be saying; Lord if only I could see the morning sun rise across the sky or if only I could get out of the bed, take a walk and feel the earth beneath my feet. For another it might be if only I had somewhere to rest my head tonight. No matter what your situation is someone else might have it worse so always appreciate what you have and give thanks.
Don’t be distracted by what others are doing. Don’t envy anyone’s life Instead, each day focus your time and energy on finding ways you can improve your life. Focus on what matters. Focus on you!
We live in a world where people are often reluctant to help others. Life is not always about competition and your success will be no less if you reach back and help someone who asks for your help. What is meant for you will be yours no matter what.
Never allow your naysayers to erode your self-confidence. People will talk about you. Some will secretly wish to see you fail. Don’t waste valuable time feeding into their negativity. When God says it’s time to shine no one can dim your light.
