Stay in the Game

At times life throws curveballs when we think we’re about to hit a home run. Discouragement quickly sets in. We’re tempted to step off the field, and we lose the will to try again.

Everyone steps up to the plate with the hope of hitting it out of the park. Yet very few hit a home run. Some make it to third base, while even more make it to second and first. None start with a guarantee of success.

Wrong Turn, Right Way

At the start of the year, you get the opportunity to look at the past through a rearview mirror. Perhaps last year’s progress was based on where you ended up at the end of the year. And your will to succeed was calculated by how quickly you got there. 

It can be discouraging to think about how things might have turned out had you taken another path. But it’s empowering to know that you can shift direction. If things didn’t go as anticipated, this might not be a long stretch.

Hope for Tomorrow

As the year comes to an end, the tendency is to reflect on where we are compared to where we thought we would be. Perhaps we made a list, and it’s time to assess how well we did. Maybe we've had the same mental list for years, and it never went further than our thoughts. Whatever the case, the start of the new year gives us another chance to try. 

If life throws a curveball, handle it with grace. Adapt and adjust. Always stay in the game. Don't let today's challenge steal tomorrow's vision. Hold on to hope.

Thank you for following Inspireu2Action in 2018. I look forward to blessings to come in 2019!

Life will always be like running on a treadmill without a clear destination. It’s only by pursuing your purpose that you’ll ever feel the satisfaction that a marathon runner feels after completing a race.

Greener Pastures

While you may need to stick it out and go through dry seasons in life, don't be afraid to step into something new. While change is inevitable, it isn’t always easy. There’s a chance you'll step into what you thought were greener pastures only to encounter dry patches along the way. Whatever the case, you have to be willing to step out to find out.

Change is a part of life, and it’s the only way to grow. Growth will stretch you. Don’t let it break you. Learn as you grow. Grow into your potential. And with the right attitude, your grass can be greener on either side.

Keep Your Eyes on the Road Ahead

Imagine you’re running late for work. You get to the office in a rush. You’re close to the elevator when you drop a piece of paper. Others behind you are running late as well. Looking back, you catch a glimpse of the crowd.

What happens if you stop abruptly to pick up the piece of paper you dropped? If others are rushing behind you, it’s likely you’ll bump into someone. If there’s a wall, you might just hit the wall.

Don't Quit

Following dreams is like walking a tightrope. The first step is the hardest. You can’t turn back. Hope keeps you going. Faith takes you to the other side.

Expect great things to happen. Walk in that belief. What once felt impossible will feel within reach. What you achieve will only go as high as what you believe. Reach for your potential.

Unfinished Masterpiece

While the picture may be cloudy, it’s life's gray moments that mold and shape us. Lovely streaks are added as the story unfolds. Every picture is perfect in its own unique way. Experiences have made us who we are today.

Life is the canvas. Tints of gray may cover bright tones trying to come through. Be patient with the process. The reason will one day be clear. The work is unfinished. The story is incomplete. In the end, the result is a masterpiece.
