Marriage: Committed To the Cause
Dang, I should have known it was going to be a rocky relationship from the beginning. There I stood all eager with anticipation, consumed with desire and ready to consummate this arrangement with pure passion and total devotion. The honeymoon period was exciting but short lived and it wasn?t long before I discovered living with the reality of it all wasn?t going to be easy. Yes, I am talking about making the goal, that dream that was conceived in your spirit a reality. No worthy goal will ever become a reality until it becomes the object of your affection. That goal will demand your attention, and scream for your devotion. It will fill your life with purpose, yet often play hard to get. The goal is always intertwined with your destiny so it will continue to seduce you until you either eliminate all other distractions or kiss your dream goodbye and later lament on what could have been.
It only gives you and either or choice there is no middle grown.It is not a marriage of convenience but of commitment. If you decide to make the dream a reality, you will have to contend with opposition, challenges, temporary setbacks, frustrations and periodic bouts of failure. The pain of victory is born in the flames of destiny and the term easy in not in the contract. The rewards are fantastic but you will earn them in the trials known as sacrifice.
The heart of a warrior is born the day you stop running from the challenges and with steadfast determination you decide to fight for the dream despite the odds. I repeat easy is not in the contract. The determination muscle is built, by getting up every time the forces of life knock you down. You will need the heart of a warrior to make the dream a reality. Refuse to quit, never bow to negative influences, cling to hope and have faith.
The only reason you were given the dream is because you can make it a reality. Make it happen!
