When the going gets tough

Eventually the going will get tough. You may feel like you can’t take it anymore. You will feel alone and desperate. All odds will be against you. Quitting may seem like the easier path. But I can assure you that you’ve got what it takes to break through. Recall the excitement when you started. How fired up you were. The lofty dreams you held. The exuberance you brought to the table. Remember why you set out on this path.

This vision was revealed to you because you have what it takes to accomplish it. You just have to hang in there a little longer.  After every dark night comes a glorious morning of a new day. May I remind you that success is stumbling from failure to failure with no loss of enthusiasm. The best way out is always through. Great things lie across this valley of disappointment. But you have to master the courage to walk through it.

This seemingly impossible situation is exactly what you need. The universe is preparing you for bigger assignments. This is just a practice session. You simply can’t give up now. Look how far you’ve come. All the little victories you have won. All the challenges you have mastered. You’re constantly being refined by the fire just like the way a precious diamond is formed. Just put one foot in front of the other and keep going. You never know what’s around the corner. It could be everything you ever dreamed of. 

Don’t forget that persistence is the secret key to success. There maybe no heroic connotation to the word “persistence” but the quality is to the character of a man what carbon is to steel. There is no substitute for persistence! It cannot be supplanted by any other quality. Remember this and it will hearten you when the going eventually gets tough.
