Fill your garden with seeds of faith. Water your flowers regularly, and make room for them to grow. In the same way, make space for positivity in your life. Water your dreams daily. Watch as they begin to bloom. Consistency is key. Plant seeds. Be patient if results are slow. Give dreams time to grow.
Imagine you’re running late for work. You get to the office in a rush. You’re close to the elevator when you drop a piece of paper. Others behind you are running late as well. Looking back, you catch a glimpse of the crowd. What happens if you stop abruptly to pick up the piece of paper you dropped? If others are rushing behind you, it’s likely you’ll bump into someone. If there’s a wall, you might just hit the wall.
Pursuing dreams is like a plane trip. To start, you have to go to the airport. Your destination is clear, and you have a flight to catch. Hesitation sets in as you drive into the terminal parking lot. You’ve already canceled this flight several times before. The thought of being out of control in the air makes you feel uneasy. This time you make it to the airport, but temptation to turn back hits you just before you board.
The next time you face a setback, keep this vision in mind. Slow down if you must. Keep going, and maintain a steady pace. If you’re tempted to step off the track, pull yourself together. And above all else, do whatever it takes to stay in the race. What you leave behind to keep moving is just as important as what you do to move forward. Today’s setback isn’t the end. Success is right around the corner. Tomorrow is your chance to start again.
