“I don’t feel any ways tired; I’ve come too far from where I started from. Nobody told me that the road would be easy. I don’t believe He brought me this far to leave me.” ~Reverend James Cleveland
The number one reason why people give up so fast is because they tend to look at how far they still have to go, instead how far they have gotten.This statement does speak volume all by itself. People tend to give up so fast especially when if they start on something that needs too much work, if they don’t see results immediately. They don’t think about what they did to make that big achievement they had made. If you keep looking behind you will find the reason to continue on but if you look ahead and see a long way up you’ll tend to give up. Some people are scare to fail. Sometimes you have to fail a thousand times to succeed. Failure is your teacher that will teaches you to how to succeed. Regardless of how many mistakes that you will make or how slow your progress are, you are still way ahead of everyone who isn’t trying at all. Don’t get upset on that one failed attempt that you miss the opening for many more. All of your ideas that don’t work are simply stepping stones on your way to the one idea that does work. Failure is not falling down but failures are staying down when you have the choice to get back up. Always get back up because often times good things fall apart so better things can fall together.
People often gave up on their dreams because they didn’t have the courage to try. Don’t let someone who gave up on their dreams talk you out of going after yours. The best thing you can do in life is follow your passion and your heart. You must take risks in life to be able to grow. You can’t stay in your comfort zone forever. Don’t just make the safe and easy choices because you’re afraid of what might happen. If you do nothing then you will never know what could have happen. If you keep doing what you’re doing then you’ll keep getting what you’re getting. Let your dreams be bigger than your fears and your actions speak louder than your words. Your actions do speak volume. Do something every day for your future so you can better yourself and you will be able to Thank God for your outcome.
Great things will come to you if you only believe that is in God design. We are who that we choose to be. Nobody’s going to come and save you. You are going to have to go save yourself. Nobody’s going to give you anything. You are going to go out there and work for it. Nobody knows exactly what you want except for you.And nobody will feel sorry for you because you don’t want to achieve it. Never leave your key to happiness in someone else’s pocket, and don’t wait on someone else to build your dream life for you. Be the architect and keeper of your own happiness.The more you take responsibility for your past and present then the more you are able to create the future that you are looking for.
