The past days I feel like I was chasing time. As a song in Lion King goes “there is more to do than can ever be done, more to see than can ever be seen,”
And just like that there will be moments in our lives that we don’t feel enough. While it is good to do our best, it is also helpful to acknowledge our limitations. Each of us has different circumstances. Even when you fail at times, yet when you know in your heart that you did your best, learn to brush judgment and frustrations aside and just keep doing your best.
Stay determined. Stay ambitious.
Just because people or even ourselves belittle us for what we cannot do and what we do not have, this is not a measure of what we can and what we have. And there is more we can do than the failures and frustrations that others see and what we see in ourselves. There is more that God has in store for us than we currently have. Everyday is a new day. Do not get stucked in the past and the mold that circumstances and people may try to put you in. You are in better control on what you can do and how to respond. Choose to stay in the course and be determined not to prove others wrong but to challenge your self to be at your best. And most importantly, enjoy the journey as you open yourself to more possibilities.
You see, we might not always get what we want. We may not always be where we want to be. But never lose your determination why you do what you are doing. Go back to your purpose and connect to the Source. He enables.
Success sometimes is not always achieving our goals or the goals set by others, sometimes it is along the journey on how we add value in the lives of others and how we put our heart in what we do. Success is not always measured by what we see and know.
Success is measured in terms of the treasures in our heart. And we learn to store treasures in our heart as God molds our character in our journey. Success and failures can go together and even if our lives seemed a failure at times as compared to others as we see it, it is for us to rely on the grace of God for greatness rather on our own.
In line with this, I am reminded with this verse:
“Do nothing out of selfish ambition but always consider others better than yourself. Think not only of your own interest but the best interest of others”
You can be determined and ambitious but it is also important to know the reasons behind our ambition and aspirations. May His glory be our top priority. Everything comes from Him❤
