Today’s post is going to be short, sweet, and simple. When we set out to do something or obtain something, we do so with expectation. Expectation of meeting our goal. If that goal or mark isn’t reached or doesn’t happen on our terms or in our timing, we stop. We get in our feelings. We allow fear of failure to set in. We start listening to other people tell us how they knew it wouldn’t work or we couldn’t do it. We throw the idea or dream away. Babe Ruth said, “Don’t let fear of striking out keep you from swinging the bat.” I’m living proof that if there is something in this world you are truly passionate about achieving, DON’T GIVE UP!!! It can be getting your high school diploma, having a family, losing 50 pounds, starting a business, overcoming depression, running a 10k, or even winning a food eating contest… pizza would be fun lol. Don’t let other people’s opinion about YOUR passion stop you. The vision wasn’t given to them. Who cares you didn’t succeed the first time. Truth be told, you might not succeed the second, third, or fourth time, either. What will make you a winner and successful is for you to keep going. The mission of Phoenix of Hope is to help other live DPC…Determined…Persistently…Consistently. I promise you that if you keep God first, stay in his Word, and live DPC, you WILL achieve all that you set out to do…no matter who you are…as long as you know whose you are!!! This is my favorite Bible verse because it gets me through EVERYDAY (tattoo on me)…”I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.” ~Philippians 4:13~
