How to keep going in life by tweaking your mindset
When what you desire does not show itself — keep going.
Need some inspiration on the go, or don’t feel like reading? Listen to the podcast where I encourage you to keep going!
I’ve been there
On January 8th, I decided I need to get A LOT of this excess weight off! So, I put myself on a plan to help me with this process.
Then, fast forward just 15 days later. I told my trainer that I did not want to waste my husband’s money and that I thought it was a great idea if I QUIT my sessions. Because “right now,” I’m not able to do the majority of the stuff I could do before due to my mobility at the moment.
The conversation with my trainer went like:
Trainer: ” Are you finished with your speech?” And, she said this with such grace all while having a beautiful smile!!
Trainer: “You know the enemy wants you to lay down.”
Me: Woowwww… that’s a word–I’m going to have to blog and podcast about that (future posting)!
Long story short, once I began to listen to the encouragement that she was giving me, it reminded me of the podcast that I recorded about a week before we had the conversation where I talk about how to keep going.
I’m confident to say that I did not quit, I kept going in spite of my feelings of wanting to quit, and I’ve lost weight!
Giving up is not an option if you want to see results.
Life happens over, and over, and over again. It’s not that we have done anything wrong for life to happen, life happens because we live in an imperfect world.
If you are facing challenges at the beginning of 2018 try not to let those challenges set the tone for you (sooo easier said than done) because remember, if the enemy can get you to give up —then he believes he has won.
To the contrary, as you keep going in spite of what it looks like right now in this season of your life, you are getting one step closer to the vision that keeps circling your mind on a day-to-day basis.
Where you are is not the end result
The result may seem farrrrr out of reach. But, as you gain traction, which builds momentum, you will see the results that you have been praying for and desiring.
Whether you are in a season of everything flowing your way or in a season where you want to see something different in your life—keep going.
By you choosing to get up in your mind in spite of how it looks and feels (SO much easier written than applying it to life), you are building the endurance it takes to go through life.
A sweet reminder: Where you are in life does not catch the Creator off guard.
In fact, He is going to cause this situation to work out in your favor as you continue to keep going.
As difficult as it might be right now—keep going.
You (we) can do it!
