Keep Moving Foward!


I met a woman the other day and we were talking about positive thinking and the importance of moving on even when life has thrown you a hard punch. She relayed some advice a friend of hers gave her one day when she was hit particularly hard. He told her this:

Get up and keep moving forward! Don’t quit! Don’t give up! If you’re walking across the road and you trip and fall down, you don’t just stay there lying in the road until you die. You get yourself up, you dust yourself off and you start walking again. Life is exactly like that. You don’t just give up when you face an obstacle or a major disappointment. You have to keep moving.

Whether it is a person who is telling you that you cannot do something, even if that person is yourself, you must persevere. Life will test you. Life will constantly ask you, “How bad do you want it?” And the bigger your goals, the bigger the obstacles you will face. Be determined and know that with God you can overcome every obstacle.

It is these testimonies of overcoming terrific problems and struggles that make for the best stories of success. Not many people are interested in hearing from someone who says, “My father was a successful millionaire, I inherited his money and am living the life of my dreams.” But think of someone like Dani Johnson who was a struggling single mother living out of her car and made the decision she was going to be successful and make something good out of her life. She is now a multi-millionaire helping others to find success.

Wouldn’t like to hear more of her story and others like her?

Whether you are struggling financially, or are having a hard time getting your business off the ground, you can do this. No matter what you are facing, you must stay the course and don’t stop. Put a smile on your face, even if you have to fake it and move forward.

Your back is not really against the wall, because God has your back. Rely on Him and do what needs to be done.

Have a blessed day!
