In life, we set goals for ourselves. We set these goals as plateaus on the horizon line ahead of us. We then begin the proverbial journey to reach these plateus. Sometimes the road to this plateau is easy, sometimes it is difficult. Sometimes it can seem down right impossible. Getting past these difficulties is what builds strength in our lives. This strength, once amassed, will be a part of us forever. To turn back just because the situation is difficult is to deny ourselves much strength and growth. Today, ask yourself, “What was the journey to where I am? What difficulties did I overcome to get here? What new strength did I amass?” How can you use this strength as a starting point for your next journey? What other goals can you now set? What other plateaus can you set out for now?
