Don’t Throw in the Towel Too Soon

“Don’t let life discourage you; everyone who got where he is had to begin where he was.”

~Richard L. Evans 

Did you ever wonder if you gave up on something that you wanted too soon?  Sometimes we hang in there so long that we start to get the feeling that maybe we just weren’t meant to achieve that goal or dream we long for.  We start to become doubtful and discouraged, and to put it bluntly, we get impatient.  We forget (at least I know I do) that there is not a specific time table on when your dreams can come true.  More importantly we forget that sometimes we have to put in our dues and struggle to get to the point of our destination.  We have to exhibit perseverance and not be too quick to throw in the towel.  Remember that if it is in your heart to accomplish your goals and you were given a purpose then it will all be worth the wait in the end.  Nothing that is worth having has ever come easy and with great struggles there are also even greater rewards.  Don’t give up on your dreams.  They are more than likely right around the corner and well within your grasp.  Until tomorrow…Don’t throw in the towel just yet!
