“Failure means you’ve stopped. So don’t stop. Keep at it. The more you move in the right direction towards success, the better you’ll feel. Every day work on making new positive habits second nature — make them automatic.” Dr. Richard Bandler
We have all heard or experienced the difficulties of stopping at something. For example, when we stop exercising, the muscles begin to atrophy. After a few days, weeks, months, or years (depending on the time between when we stop and begin again) we are left struggling with a level of soreness and loss of cardio conditioning.
Imagine the difference in making a few adjustments to prevent the desire to stop.
Imagine developing habits that become automatic in the process of leading others.
A recent article about ultra-distance runner Scott Jurek discussed ways to stay motivated and prevent the failure of stopping. One of his suggestions was to “dedicate your goal.”
When we dedicate our life to the Lord and pursue the goal with diligence, we remember the purpose for which we are seeking success.
Nothing is more worthy of our time and effort. Don’t stop!
