Success is not final. Failure is not fatal. It is the courage to continue that counts.
Winston Churchill, wartime Prime Minister of the United Kingdom can be lauded for many accomplishments and criticized for views, but what we do remember today is his attitude during the Second World War –
‘…never give in, never, never, never, never—in nothing, great or small, large or petty—never give in except to convictions of honour and good sense.’
~ from a speech in 1941
The Courage to Continue to the Goal
Do you need to come back from a failure to continue and reach a new goal? Is the joy of a past success hard to remember as you move forward and continue toward the next goal?
Are you tired, even as you carry on.. yet again… Sometimes it’s in the middle that we need even more energy than at the beginning or drawing near the end.
What do you need to continue this week? What goal are you reaching for?
Reach out to someone for some help. You don’t need to be alone as you continue. Now is a good time to build and nurture a team, even if that team is just there for support.
Use some of that courage you possess to ask for assistance – and if the assistance you need is some prayer, then ask for that also! (I’d be honored to pray with you – reach out! Remember, prayer changes things.)
