Too many times, on our journey towards our goal,we experience hardships, difficulties and obstacles that seem to continue to knock us down and push us backwards…to such an extent that we feel we are going backwards.

You  see that  every challenge and obstacle we encounter is sent to prove us to ourselves! what  I mean  by this is that we  will never get anything of value and substance  without a corresponding effort. So when we start to progress along the path to our goal we need to earn that which  we seek.

As it say in the bible: “Ask and you will receive, seek and you will find knock and the door will be opened”.

Now the important aspects of this teaching is that we have to put the effort in! We have to seek and we have to knock…persistently

The effort we put in will for the majority of the time be met with resistance and the closer we get  to our goal the more intense the resistance becomes.This is the final effort that we need to put in to prove  to ourselves that we are worthy!

And when we are able to overcome we eliminate that alibis from our lives that  tell  us is OK to settle for  less…ITS NEVER OK TO SETTLE FOR LESS!

A video that I  continue to  draw on that sums  up the need for persistence is:

Its Not  Over Until You Win by Les Brown.

Watch it, apply it, learn, grow but more importantly NEVER GIVE UP!
