Anyone knows that if you want to gain anything in life, labor is required. It could be physical labor or mental labor, but the fact remains, for most of us what we want and need in life, requires Grit to accomplish it.
You don’t start out in adulthood with a brand new home, new flashy car and the road paved ahead of you with gold and silver. Most of us have to work for what we need, and for most of us, it may take years to reach our goals. And the road ahead normally will not be “I see what I want, I’m going after it”. There will be bumps in the road, obstacles big and small that detour us from our dreams. The good news, though, is that if you have grit and determination, you can accomplish unimaginable goals and dreams.
You have to be willing to work hard, work long hours or hours that seem long because they aren’t M-F,9-5. You may be part of the work crowd that works two jobs to make ends meet, go to school and have a family to take care of. And your dreams may always seem just out of your grasp, but don’t give up. If you see the glass as half full and are optimistic, your attitude can get you farther, than if you see the glass as half empty. I know this personally.
It says in God’s word, that if we think about something long enough, it can become reality.
Proverbs 4:23-27New Century Version (NCV)
23 Be careful what you think,
because your thoughts run your life.
24 Don’t use your mouth to tell lies;
don’t ever say things that are not true.
25 Keep your eyes focused on what is right,
and look straight ahead to what is good.
26 Be careful what you do,
and always do what is right.
27 Don’t turn off the road of goodness;
keep away from evil paths.
Besides the fact, that you can receive satisfaction from achieving your dreams and goals, hard work and grit never hurt anyone. If you have ever worked hard at accomplishing your goals, then you know what it feels like when you succeed. You can look back and see how far you have come and you can thank your Heavenly Father for how much He has been with you every step of the way.
Dream Big! Trust that God is in all the details and He is going before you and setting you up for success. The only limitations you have is your mind. Live Abundantly!
May you know how much Jesus Loves You! #HOPEALWAYS#HAVEFAITH
Blessings to you!
