Whenever we start something new, excitement guides us for a few days. When we are excited the possibilities seem endless. Our minds continuously come up with ideas, and ways to move forward. However, when the enemy sees our progress , he tries to derail our journey. And then, it all gets really hard.
This is where we have to make a crucial decision, and answer some tough questions. We just need to make sure we are asking ourselves the right questions. Here are a few of my favorite questions.
- How bad do you want it?
- Why is it important to you?
- Can you quit without regrets?
When I ask myself these questions, I am reminded of why I want to do it. My why propels me forward and helps me to fight for what I want. If it was easy, everyone would do it. During my journey, I have wanted to quit so many times. When I am writing a book, I try to quit after each page. Because it’s hard. But I know that if I will just hang in there and trust the process, God will bless my efforts.
In all reality, we need to rid our minds of easy. Doing things that are easy, will not move us forward in our lives nor will it feed our soul. It’s the beautiful gift of overcoming the challenge that makes us feel accomplished. When we overcome the things that are so difficult for us, it strengthens us and teaches us important life lessons.
Whatever your challenge, I pray that you will hang in there and keep going. Victory is on the other side of the struggle.
Love and blessings,
