The very moment that we decide to change something in our life, an obstacles arises. Have you ever noticed how that always seems to happen? Perhaps, we decide that tomorrow we are going to get up at 5 am to workout, but we end up having a sleepless night. Or we decide that we are going eat healthier, and we are invited to a party. The scenarios are all the same. Once we start moving toward our goals and desires, the enemy tries to stop us. He doesn’t want us to do anything to better ourselves.
The only way to defeat him is to know why we want to change. Our desire to change has to be greater than the comfort of remaining the same. Obstacles will arise. Hardships will come. We will get off track and even get discouraged at times. The key to overcoming, however, is to be relentless in our efforts.
Some things are completely out of control. Unexpected things come up. In those trying times, we just have to do the best that we can do—in that moment—and forget the rest. Then we need to get back on track as soon as possible.
The journey to success is not straight. It has many wrong turns and obstacles to overcome. That is what makes it so rewarding.
Every day we get to choose how we will spend our time and what is the most important to us. And we need to make sure that whatever we are spending our time with is moving us closer to our dreams.
Love and blessings,
