“I’ve been married for 37 years” an older couple states. The statement is followed by a few sudden gasps, heart clutches, and an applause.
Yep.. that’s usually how it goes, but why is that? Why is it that as Americans we stand and admire things that should be. Maybe because for the past couple decades consistency and commitment has become a such a rarity. If there is one thing I agree with about our generation it would be that we suffer from this sense of entitlement. If things don’t come to fulfill our expectations within like the first 90 days we are out and we quit or decide to give up. For me, this is more relevant than ever before, it’s so easy to give up or take the easy route! Success takes more than that. Success takes diligence, effort, determination, and most of all patience. If being successful, starting a business, or following god’s plans for your life was easy everyone would do it. Nothing worth having comes easy, you have to be willing to work to attain success in this world and beyond. You have to decide if you want to remain the same for the rest of your life or if you want to be somebody. Over the past couple of weeks I have been exposed to the scripture Hebrews 6:12;
“Let ye be not slothful but followers of them who through faith and patience inherit the promises”
It is so relevant! We have to have faith, We have to have patience and discipline. If you want to be someone in life you have to stick it out a little bit longer and try a little bit harder. With hard work and determination there is absolutely no way you won’t attain success. You have to sacrifice some things to attain your goals, dreams, and God’s plan for you. Be steadfast and diligent in your work and you will surely come to success. Ask God what he has for you and he will lead you to it! Be strong and stay consistent.
