It is Never too Late
We are well into the second half of the year. Anxiety may be growing for some of us whose dreams or resolutions for the year aren't fulfilled yet. We might have began the year with great enthusiasm. We had plans; the goals were clear. We even wrote them as advised by experts. But we haven't gone past the sheet of paper and ink. It's too late now!
It is easy to resign to fate, to give up or to conclude it is too late to do anything about our resolutions for the year. "After all, look at others, they are far ahead..." That is the problem! When we compare ourselves with others, we subject ourselves to unnecessary anxiety. We panic. We waste our energy. We become discouraged. We even give up.
Friends, I have good news for you. It is never too late to start fulfilling your dreams. Stop comparing yourself with others. It isn't worth your time. Someone is always going to be better. So, give up competing with others and give in to pursuing your goals. You can do it. Don't limit your potential. God has endowed you with all you need. Stand up! Start now!
