Today I’m writing to you about perseverance and staying the course toward your goals.
Perhaps you have heard the saying/ quote, “I didn’t come this far to only come this far”.
Just about every worth cause, big goal or dream includes an obstacle, a stumbling block or a time that feels like it is no longer possible.
It is a part of the journey.
For most people, we hit a wall and want to give up at one point or another.
Jesse Itler (entrepreneur, speaker, ultra marathon runner) says that “when you are ready to quit you are only at 40% of your limit” and that “as you grow tougher you can increase this”.
I believe this to be true.
We all- at some point- want to give up.
This is why it is critical to have a supportive environment.
You need family, friends, a coach, a therapist, a pastor (at least one other person) who will help you see the perspective and encourage you to persevere toward your goals.
If it were always easy to reach big goals everyone everywhere would be doing it.
The big thing to always remember is that you can do it. Your journey is yours and you’re working with what you’ve got. Never compare yourself to others. If you feel like giving up, remember “you’ve come too far to only come this far”.
Let’s make it a great week!
