So it is finally Thursday and time for another post. I'm excited about this post because I can taste a breakthrough coming up in my near future. It is not always easy waiting for your breakthrough to come into fruition but you MUST remain diligent. You can't give up and if you find yourself slacking GET YOUR HEAD BACK IN THE GAME. I believe you won't really achieve your breakthrough until you dig a little deeper and push a little harder and then that is when the circumstances seem to kick off into auto-pilot. The reason I say auto-pilot is because once you've done all you can ...you know the rest, just STAND! :) If you aren't quite achieving the progress you feel like you should be achieving in a course perhaps like oh I don't know *cough, cough* TRIGONOMETRY lol you have to continue to push through the material. Stretch your brain, make the mistakes, practice the problems over and over, stay after class a little longer for the help session, fall flat on your face, take a breather, get back up, go to the precious moments during office hours, don't throw a pity party, JUST KEEP TRYING.
You see most of the time your breakthrough or the outcome you're trying to achieve is in close proximity to your reach but you have to dig a little deeper. If you aren't producing the results that you know you deserve then you may need to reevaluate your approach. There isn't a perfect or magic formula to expedite your "breakthrough" but think about it I'm sure marathon runners get tired during the run but once they know the finish line is in sight they dig a little deeper, their adrenaline pumps a little harder, and they push right on across the line and finish the race. That is exactly what you need to do. Whether it be in your finances, course work, relationships, social life/skills, business endeavors, potty training :) or whatever the circumstances are in your life that you are needing a breakthrough in. We all have areas in our life that we would like to see get better and that we would like to dominate and overcome and YOU CAN WIN just be steadfast and patient. I even dare you not to question the process or hardship but instead boldly walk the path of uncertainty about when the breakthrough will be delivered and dig a little for the strength to continue moving forward in spite of the delay, catch this.. with a POSITIVE attitude. I know it's hard trust me but we owe it to God to give Him and His grace and mercy at least that much faith and trust only the size of a little tiny mustard seed. You don't need to know everything. I'm just sayin'! :) Because if you did, then you would, now wouldn't you? lol :)
Received a great encouragement today via text from a friend that is pretty fitting for this post so I will end it with this.
"Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank him for all he has done. Then you will experience God’s peace, which exceeds anything we can understand. His peace will guard your hearts and minds as you live in Christ Jesus" -Philippians 4:6-7
