Success requires us to find the strength to keep going when we’ve reached the point where we’re too tired to move forward and ready to give up.
It requires the faith to move to the outer edge of our support system and the willingness to step into that realm of loneliness that exists when we reach that part of our journey that requires us to walk alone.
It requires the courage to jump without a safety net and to fly without a parachute.
It requires the honesty to see yourself for who you really are and the bravery to become who you are destined to be.
It requires us to love yourself unconditionally and to have the fortitude to wage the lifelong battle with the fear that is the biggest threat us reaching our desired destination.
It requires us to stand up when we’ve been knocked down, to dust ourselves off, to learn from our mistakes, and to overcome the doubt that creeps in when we fall short.
Most importantly, it requires us to believe… How many of you are believers in you? ~ Sean King
To my dreamers: Don’t allow the pitfalls or the mountains you encounter on your path discourage you from continuing to move forward. Don’t let the doubts or lack of support from those around you lead to a place of self doubt. Don’t become so fixated on that brick wall that’s standing between you and your destiny that you forget what your destiny is.
What I’m saying is this: If you fall down; get up. If there is a mountain that needs to be climbed; don’t think about how high it is, just climb it. If you feel the people who love you don’t support your dreams; achieve them and watch those same people who didn’t believe become the people who tell you they always believed in you. If you come face to face with a brick wall; knock it down, go around it, climb over the top of it, jump, fly, soar… do whatever you need to do to keep moving toward your destiny.
You are capable, you just have to believe in you… ~ Sean King
Only if I am willing to give it all in an effort to save you can I claim to walk the path of Jesus… but right now, I am still too inwardly focused to recognize your pain. I am still too worried about receiving the blessings I deserve to sacrifice for you. I am too afraid of the unknown to embrace the after life. I’ve heard it’s beautiful, yet I fear death because I don’t know anyone who can confirm its beauty. The willingness to step into the unknown is where my faith is weakest. I claim Christianity, yet demand that you meet me half way before I sacrifice anything for you. Did the people meet Jesus half way before he took the cross? Were they deserving of his love? Are we worthy enough to call ourselves faithful followers?
In time we will all discover truth, for now we ponder. ~ Sean King
