Rejoice in the challenges

If you feel like giving up, your dream isn’t big enough.

Whenever you attempt anything, you will have challenges. There will be days when you wonder if anything will ever come of your efforts. People will scoff at you, laugh at you, conspire against you, and ignore you. Deals will fall through, things will break, people will lie to your face.

Remember that the challenges are not there to stop you. The challenges are there to help you grow. To help you be the person who can attain the dream your following. In fact, the person you become in the pursuit of your dream is worth far more than any dream could ever be.

Be thankful for the hard times, for the challenges. Because what they give you, no one can ever take away.

— Ralph Marston
