Some of our goals and dreams are realized so easily that it is as if an unseen hand has done much of the work for us. When this happens, we say it must have been meant to be. On the other hand, when dreams and goals require a tremendous amount of effort, we may view this to mean that our dream is not meant to be. However, difficulty is not necessarily a sign that our hopes and plans are doomed. On the contrary, difficulties and challenges along the journey can be important parts of the overall result or meaning.
When things go smoothly, we feel blessed. When things are tough, we may feel discouraged and that we are doomed or accursed. We need to know that we are blessed in either circumstance. When things are difficult, we can learn lessons. Think of the satisfaction that comes with knowing you achieved something that was challenging. Self-reliance expands and our ability to endure and that our faith is stronger for it being tested. Overcoming obstacles empowers us to dream even bigger.
I encourage you to embrace all goals whether easy or difficult and learn throughout this journey.
