March Madness - Day 28


Believe in yourself! You are enough!

Tenacity.

Determination.
Commitment.
Passion.

Many of us set goals for ourselves. We start off strong. We're excited. We say we're ready. We make a plan to achieve the goal. We set benchmarks.

But then something happens.

The plan doesn't go the way we thought it was supposed to. We miss the benchmark.

What happens then?

Many of us second guess ourselves. We begin to question whether we set the right goal. We start to wonder if we're enough. We start to wonder if we have what it takes.

For some of us, our confidence is so shaken that we give up. We throw in the towel. We abort the mission.

But why?

I venture to say we forget who we are. We forget whose we are.

Truth is, nothing should shake our confidence. After all, Psalm 139:14 tells us that we "are fearfully and wonderfully made."

We were created for success. We were destined for greatness. We were born to soar.

No matter what comes up against you, stand firm. Be like a tree planted by a river. Be immovable. Bend but don't break.

Revisit your goal.

When you are tired, push.
When you are weak, push.
When doubt sets in, push.
When you are let down, push.
When frustration takes over, push.

Push past fear. Push past pain. Push past disappointment. Push past ridicule.

When you fight the good fight, you remind yourself of all that you're capable of. You remind yourself that your battle is not yours to fight alone. You remind yourself that you are enough.

          YES, YOU ARE ENOUGH!

Believe that for yourself. Others will be have no choice but to fall in line.


Declare that today by commenting below: I AM ENOUGH!

Persevere Under Trial

I could hear the tears through the phone. 
It was test out day for the Lifeguard training class. There was  a written test as well as a water skills test. Both sections were required to be completed at an above average passage rate in order for the student to graduate to full lifeguard status. 
Not only were two questions missed on the written test but there was a deficiency in the water skills exam. 
Good news.....
There was an opportunity to retest on the following day. 😀
Bad news.....
The retest was a futile attempt. 😞
After missing the same two questions on the written portion, there was no opportunity or need to retest on the water skills.
I'm sure you can guess what happened next. Yep, there was the internal struggle of do I retake the entire course and test again OR do I cut my losses and move on?
Many of us end up at this crossroad. We get here when we feel like we have given our all to something and did not achieve the result we hoped for. Here are just a few examples: W…
