Did you set goals or resolutions in January? How’s it going for you?
Well, if you are like most people, the answer is probably “not so great.” We are now on day 51 of 2015, and statistically, a good portion of folks aren’t sticking to whatever their goals were for the year – at least not as well as they were in January.
But I am not here to get you down about yourself. Those of you who know me are fully aware I am an optimist, and those of you who don’t now know that . So how about some inspiration and motivation to keep you (or get you back) on track with your goals – whether they be spiritual, writing, or anything else. You CAN do it!
Let’s start with a bit of Scripture – shall we?
I can do all this through him who gives me strength. Philippians 4:13
For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do. Ephesians 2:10
Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up. Galatians 6:9
And how about a few quotes?
When you come to the end of your rope, tie a knot and hang on. ~Franklin D. Roosevelt
Putting off an easy thing makes it hard. Putting off a hard thing makes it impossible. ~George Claude Lorimer
If there’s a book you really want to read, but it hasn’t been written yet, then you must write it. ~Toni Morrison
I hated every minute of training, but I said, ‘Don’t quit. Suffer now and live the rest of your life as a champion.’ - Muhammad Ali
Look at a stone cutter hammering away at his rock, perhaps a hundred times without as much as a crack showing in it. Yet at the hundred-and-first blow it will split in two, and I know it was not the last blow that did it, but all that had gone before. ~Jacob A. Riis
