The tragedy of life is often not in our failure, but rather in our complacency; not in our doing too much, but rather in our doing too little; not in our living above our ability, but rather in our living below our capacities –¬†Benjamin E. Mays

Take a moment and visualize your dream. Feel the sun shining on you. The people praising you; the money, cars, and exotic trips.

Now, are you aware that those moments are as fleeting as the image you are holding in your mind of it? Do you realize that the most memorable moments in the achievement of your dream IS the hard times and how you made it? The times when you didn’t know how you were going to make ends meet, but you made it anyhow.

The struggle is real; some would say more so than the glamor of your dream. The challenge is do you have the wherewithal to keep your dream in focus even when your world is rocked?

Share your stories of how you made it through in the comment section below.
