Be Fearless! The focus we chose for 2014, as Pioneer Outfitters, as a Team and each of us personally, Be Fearless! is our daily reminder to each other to Stay the Path we have chosen to be stronger, smarter and more courageous than ever before. Today’s Monday Motivation is Be Faithful!
Faithful is by definition, to be loyal, constant and steadfast. The goals we (you too!) have set require us to remain faithful, to be loyal, constant and steadfast; for the long road ahead. We must not give in to old ways or the lure of comfortable routines, we must not give up when things are hard as they surely will be and to be honest it may feel as if they already are almost too much to bare.
Sitting here today, thinking about our promise to Be Fearless!, I find myself wondering if you are wavering. If a lack of recognition or appreciation may be wearing your resolve down. If possibly it feels as if that goal really is simply a trick of the light and maybe you just got caught up in the moment of actually believing that something so wonderful and spectacular (to you) could actually be your future.
Hey! Stop it! Be Faithful!
Seriously, these things really are simply rough spots, and yes, there actually may be a lot of them! Good grief, don’t stop now. So many things are so incredibly hard. That doesn’t mean they aren’t worth every single ache, do-over, hour, tear, sacrifice and bruise.
When it captures your heart, as this certainly has, it will feel as if everything in the Universe conspires against you at times. It may be, that nobody close to you believes it has any purpose or point. Maybe you have even been told that it is a fool’s gold or nothing of value at all. It might be that you and this dream have been ridiculed, belittled or sometimes even worse, ignored.
That’s ok, that is simply to test your resolve. Be Faithful.
You do know, don’t you that most times the moment you give up, the day you walk away or just plain quit and throw everything in the trash heap is the exact moment before it would all change?
Be faithful, my friend, be loyal and stay your path, be constant and remember you are an inspiration to those you don’t even know, be constant and make a difference. That is the point, right? No matter what it is you are dreaming of, working towards, studying or aspiring to; you will make a difference.
Above all else, remember that you are not alone. We are here. I am here. I will not quit and will not stop. We will make a difference too. This week, be faithful.
