A close girlfriend of mine used to have a message on her voice mail that said “Success is achieved through perseverance so never, never, never give up!” Every time I called her I knew that if we talked she would encourage me in some way and if she isn’t available at the time I’ll still be encouraged with her message. What a wonderful way to greet all who desire to speak with you. Today I encourage you with the same words.
“And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not.” - Galatians 6:9
We are entering the last quarter of 2011 soon. Have you made plans to stay on a budget, save a certain amount of money, or purchase a large item? How are you doing on your financial goals for 2011? It is easy to set our goals, but what do we do once they are written? Let’s not hide them in the office drawer. Pull them out and read them at least weekly. Make sure you are showing progress regularly. Show them to someone who really cares about you. It takes at least a few weeks of repetition before the new behavior becomes a habit. If you haven’t achieved your goals for 2011 yet, there still is time. Don’t give up before what you are striving for really becomes a part of who you are. Whatever it is that you are destined to accomplish this year is worth the effort required. And… you are more than worth the rewards that achievement will bring. Never, never, never give up!
