Great things can be accomplished at any age. It’s never too late to be who you want to be. If you are not where you want to be, don’t be afraid to start over. Start over and build something better than you had. We fail only when we fail to try again. Failure is the path of least persistence. Have faith and keep trying. Have the courage to take a risk. That’s what brings success in life. Don’t be afraid to go out on a limb, that’s where the fruit is. If at first you don’t succeed, you’re normal. Try again. Many times success is right around the corner. You are never a failure until you quit. The fact is everyone experiences failure in life. We all have setbacks and losses but what matters most is what you do when things don’t work out the way you had planned. God is more interested in your future than He is in your past. Could it be that God’s plan for you is bigger than you had thought? Jeremiah 29:11 says “For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.”
Our attitude toward life will determine life’s attitude toward us. If you think you can’t, chances are you won’t. On the other hand, if you think you can, wonderful things will begin to happen. Life will give back to you a reward for your perseverance. If you don’t believe in yourself, nobody will. Don’t expect others to see gold where you can only see dust. If you don’t believe that you are capable then you are doomed. Focus on your vision and not your current circumstances. Renew your mind so that it aligns itself with the kingdom of God. If you can believe that all things are possible, then all things are possible. What’s possible for you is not based on what others think but on what you think. Proverbs 23:7 says “as a man thinks in his heart so is he.” Think positive, act positive and you will get positive results.
It’s never too late to start over. Your past is gone. Shape your future and make the most of the present. You are not perfect but neither is anyone else. You’ve made mistakes but so has everyone else. So relax. God has given you everything you need to become the person He created you to be but it is up to you to pursue that dream in your heart. You deserve the best and when you have achieved all that you have set out to do, give God the glory and remember that you are blessed to be a blessing.
