“Most people give up just when they’re about to achieve success. They quit on the one-yard line. They give up at the last minute of the game, one foot from a winning touchdown.” H. Ross Perot
It is easy to quit, walk away, and throw your hands up in defeat.
It is hard to keep going when there are so many obstacles, disappointments, and discouragements.
Perseverance has been the best and the hardest lesson for me to learn in the process discovering who I and my purpose in life.
What has kept me going is my support team – my incredible husband, my amazing friends, and my family’s belief and trust in me.
What has kept me going is a deep “knowing” that this is the path I am supposed to be on. The lessons are ones that I am supposed to learn.
What has kept me going are the people, resources, and opportunities that “show” up just when it would be easier to give up or I am in a place where I don’t know how to move forward.
What has kept me going is just doing one thing, one step at a time. Some days those are big steps and some days they are small, but it is moving forward!
When pursuing any dream, know that there are obstacles and make a decision in the beginning to keep moving no matter what. Look at obstacles as learning opportunities to improve and grow. Know that things happen for a reason. Know that it isn’t always going to be easy.
Hang in there! Keep persevering towards your desired outcome because as Norman Vincent Peale said “It is always too soon to quit!”
