The difference between you and the person who 'made it' is, they didn't quit. NOTHING worth having is easy ... nothing. If it's of any real value, you have to be determined to not be denied and work for it. Success is missed by most people because it's dressed in overalls and looks like work. You aren't married for 30 years without WORK. You don't have a million dollar company without WORK. You won't go from a size 20 to a size ten without WORK. Despite the glossy photo shopped images in the magazine, the 'boo'd up' pics on Facebook, or the weight loss commercials telling you otherwise... if it has ANY value, work was put in to MAKE it that way. The child of God has this promise: You will win if you don't quit. So, don't quit.
Galatians 6:9 ESV - And let us not grow weary of doing good, for in due season we will reap, if we do not give up.
