Some people plant in the spring and leave in the summer. If you’re signed up for a season, see it through. You don’t have to stay forever, but at least stay until you see it through. ~ Jim Rohn
I have learned through my years in sales, personal growth and leadership development that to do extraordinary things require getting through many challenges, obstacles and setbacks. Through all of those moments in the darkness comes your growth to another level on the other side. Unfortunately, there is no shortcut to developing our greatness. The only way to further ourselves is to stay the course, especially when it feels like “quitting” is a less painful way out. As a matter of fact, I have learned that when I was asking myself “What is the point?” That is when I need to stay in and see it through; because my breakthrough is now just right around the corner.
So staying in the game is the first required ingredient.
The next important ingredient is who I have chosen to learn from while staying in the game and how to keep the momentum as I take the next turn.
I certainly have not been growing in the direction of my purpose on my own. In fact, I don’t think it would have been possible trying to get to my next level with my own small thinking. I have been blessed with so many great mentors and coaches in my life that I desire to use all the gifts I have to serve others.
Where are you in your season? Did you plant your seeds? What would you do if you didn’t see the new growth right away? How much time will you give it before you say “What’s the point?” You growth is just right around the corner. Most people give up just as they are about to have their breakthrough. What about you? Will you stick around?
