“One day Jesus told his disciples a story to show that they should always pray and never give up.” – Luke 18:1 (AMP)
While in the process of fulfilling our dreams, sometimes we are met with all kinds of opposition that make us feel uncertain about our future. It’s during these times that our motivation to move forward subsides and we lose sight of the vision God has given us to accomplish.
Regardless of where you are in your journey, know within yourself that you have the ability to do great things and achieve your highest potential. You might be at the lowest point in your life, flooded by self-doubts, and surrounded by failure. However, if you will just hang in there, things will eventually work out in your favor. If God gave you a dream, stick with the plan and refuse to quit.
Your persistence and refusal to give up in the face of failure and defeat are perhaps two of the most critical ingredients in your success. Winners become winners because they refuse to quit. They refuse to stop trying. So much in life and success is about showing up and keeping on.
This is the last quarter of 2018 and I want to reignite a fire within you to believe God again and never stop pursuing your dreams. If you’ve fallen down, pick yourself off the floor, get back up on your feet and keep moving forward. Do not cave in and quit. Even if others have given up on you, don’t give up on yourself. Your best days are right in front of you!
