It’s fourth quarter. Everybody says you should quit. Even you think it’s over.
All of the right signs are there. You are failing.... miserably.
The clouds of doom are everywhere. And now you feel stupid for even trying. Borderline mad at the prayers you sent up. Crazy enough to think you would get an answer. The curtain is closing. The fans are leaving. Your heart is sinking. You’ve given up.
With your head held down to the floor, you are suddenly reminded of the hard work you put in. All of the sacrifices you made. Your dream excites you and has always pushed you to make challenging decisions. And with every envelope you’ve pushed, the front door may not have opened, but we all know houses have windows and back doors that can be left unlocked. Before you knew it, you’re in the house. Maybe not as an invited guest, but still an occupant nonetheless. You see, as an insider you have everything you need. Quietly, without anyone noticing, you’ve been developing the tools needed to really sustain success.
Your dream is the purpose that refreshes your strength. Your dream has given you the courage to introduce yourself to opportunities you never thought you would experience.
The happiness you feel, as you journey to the top, isn’t a facade. It is real and even though you may feel as if you are ready to quit. Don’t you dare walk away. You are already in the house, so walk over and kick the front door down.
