When You Lose Something, there’s Always Something to Gain
When we lose our job or see that it isn’t as fulfilling as it once was anymore, it’s usually because God’s got something better and greater in store that gives us more growth and progress. The same goes for relationships; some people are in our lives only for a season, and when God removes people out of our lives, it is for our best and because He has something better in store for us. We can only stay in a place for so long, until it doesn’t give us any more growth or progress. We always have to work towards getting up to higher levels that challenge us and that create more growth. Staying in a comfort zone doesn’t do you anything good and doesn’t get you anywhere.
If you’re satisfied with where you are but feel like God is pushing you in another direction, it’s usually because where you are or where you’ve been has given you what you needed and because it’s time for a change and for a new challenge.
Your comfort zone feels good, but isn’t always the right place to be if you want to grow and be taken into higher levels of living and being. If you lose something, God will always give you back something new and better.
Don’t Give Up Your Dreams, Just Because They Didn’t Work In the Past
Give your dreams one more try, even after rejection, try again, and never give up. The ones you see around you with great success are the ones who never gave up; they tried again and again and again and refused to give up their dreams.
The more determination you have of reaching your dreams, the greater the results and the success will be. You’ll have to pray much, work hard, press on, and never give up until you have succeeded and gotten what you want.
If you don’t give up, you may be as successful as these people:
If Howard Schultz gave up after being turned down by banks 242 times, there would be no Starbucks.
If J.K. Rowling stopped after being turned down by multiple publishers for years, there would be no Harry Potter.
If Walt Disney quit too soon after his theme park concept was trashed 302 times, there would be no Disneyland.
One thing is for sure; if you give up too soon, you’ll never know what you’ll be missing. Keep going, and never quit, don’t give up your dreams.
IF YOU WANT AN EXTRAORDINARY LIFE, YOU HAVE TO DO EXTRAORDINARY THINGS
