All Things Are Difficult Before They Are Easy

Thomas Fuller was right when he said, “All things are difficult before they are easy.” I have always believed that we can achieve our dreams. Whatever your dreams are, whatever you are trying really hard to achieve in your life, it is going to be difficult before it gets easy. Do not give up. Do not tell yourself that you can’t get it done. You can. Believe in yourself. Believe in your dreams. Believe in your talent. Believe in your ability to get things done. Do not throw your dreams away. Put it in front of you. If you want to achieve your goals in your life, you must keep your dreams in your heart. You must sing it every day. You must live it every day. You must water it every day.

“If you want to achieve your dreams, you must keep them in your heart.”

If you ignore your dreams, they will ignore you. But if you nurture them, they will never leave you. It is important to nurture your dreams. It is not going to be easy. But if others can do it, you can do it. Your dreams are not impossible. They are possible. If your dreams are not happening right now, don’t give up. Because giving up your dream is not the solution to your situation. Nurture your dreams. If you want your dreams to die, ignore them. But if you want your dreams to live, you must nurture them. You must work them. You must live them. You must write them down. You must visit them every day. If not, they will not survive this hostile world we live in.

“It is your responsibility to make your dreams come true. If you don’t , who will?”

Your dreams will survive if you don’t ignore them. It is your responsibility to grow them. But you can’t grow your dreams if you don’t care for them. If you want them to survive, you have got to care for them. If you love your dreams, do not ignore them. No matter how hard, no matter how tough, stick with them. In the words of Sam Glenn, “You have to take responsibility for your life; if you don’t, who will?” Yes, he is right. You are responsible for making your dreams come true. If you don’t do it for yourself, who will? If you don’t take responsibility for your future, who will? If you don’t stick with your dreams, who will?

“Do not fail yourself.”

If Life Does Not Look Back, Why Are You Expecting More Of The Same?

“When we least expect it, life sets us a challenge to test our courage and willingness to change; at such moment, there is no point in pretending that nothing has happened or in saying that we are not ready. The challenge will not wait. Life does not look back.”– Paulo Coelho

When it comes to your life, your growth, your success, whether you want to change yourself or not, life will not wait. Life will continue. Life will not look back. Your opportunities will not wait. Your clock will not stop. Your soul will not wait. Because if you don’t use your mind, it will deteriorate. Frank Herbert said, “Live the best life you can.” Live your life. Live your life in the present, not in the past. We don’t live our lives. Why is that? Because we live in the past. Believe it or not, it is time to change your home address. If you don’t, life will not wait. It continues. Life continues.

“Every man has his own destiny: the only imperative is to follow it, to accept it, no matter where it leads him.”– Henry Miller

When it comes to your life, live it. You have what it takes to live it. Just do it. Do not bring your past regrets into your present life. No matter what may have happened to you in your past, do not let it keep you away from your dreams. Do not wait for someone to change your life for you. It is your responsibility to do it for yourself. Do not limit yourself. You can live a good life. You can live a courageous life. You can live a happy life. No matter what, do not make the mistake of settling for less. You are better than less. You are for more, not less. To make that happen, you must do your own part.
