Tired? Don’t Quit!

“So let’s not allow ourselves to get fatigued doing good. At the right time we will harvest a good crop if we don’t give up…”

Persevere Climbing Up Mountain

That quote is from the Bible.  When I read it I really had to stop and think:

What is all the GOOD stuff I don’t do as often or regularly as I should, or that I’ve just simply stopped doing?

  • Exercise?

  • Healthy eating?

  • Saving?

  • Working my business?

  • Blogging?

  • Staying in touch with family and friends?

  • Spending time with God?

How about you?  What are some good things that you need to be doing consistently, that you just don’t do enough, or that you’ve just quit?

And more importantly: why?

I know I stop or slow down doing the good stuff when I get frustrated.  And I get frustrated when I bust my chops and don’t see the results.

The truth is, results from our work usually don’t come immediately.  The results of things we do today may show up next week.  Or next month.  Or next year.  Or in the next 5 – 10 years.

It’s part of the law of sowing and reaping.  What I plant today won’t show up fully mature and bearing fruit or flowers tomorrow.  It’s gonna take a while… But if I keep taking care of my plant, watering, fertilizing, pruning, I will eventually have gorgeous flowers or delicious fruit… when the time is right.

So:  Keep on doing the right thing in the right way, in your business and in your personal life.  You will eventually reap the reward.

DON’T QUIT!
