Things fall apart. Plans change. People disappoint. People hurt you. In my case, employers decide not to hire you. All of these things can result in the easy way out: giving up.
Giving up is easy. It doesn’t require any effort. All it takes is for you to not do anything about your situation. Just cross your arms and turn your back on the world. But does it get you anywhere?
I have personally been dealing with the thought of giving up on my dreams/goals. I’ve worked so hard to get to where I am, but my career seems to be stuck or moving in slow motion. I started questioning my abilities and whether my dreams are just that. Dreams.
But I must remind myself to use best thinking in any set of circumstances and not only when it is convenient or when I feel like it.
Find the good in the bad. If you’re trying to accomplish something, but keep running into obstacles, keep thriving. It is very difficult for me to stay positive when I don’t seem to think that there is anything to be positive about when it comes to where my career is at this point. But I know that being negative won’t take me where I need to be. God placed those dreams in my heart for a reason.
Obstacles are those frightful things you see when you take your eyes off your goal.
