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.
It takes determination to see your dream come through. It takes believing in yourself when others don’t. It takes telling yourself I can when others tell you, you can’t. It takes getting back up when you fall and learning from your mistakes. It takes pushing forward when you feel like giving up. Remember if success was easy everyone would be successful. So keep working at it until your dream becomes your reality.
Too often we expect to see overnight success. Take a lesson from the farmer. First he plows the land, then he plant the crops. He has to ensure that it get the right amount of water and fertilizer and he also has to get rid of those weed that will hinder the growth of the crop. Use this lesson in your life. Identify the goal you want to achieve. Work on it. Give it your time and attention. You will also have to face the task of removing people from your live who hinders your growth. In the end you will reap that harvest.
