Therefore let us also, seeing we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, lay aside every weight and the sin which so easily entangles us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us - Hebrew 12:1
Working towards the actualisation of your goal stands you in a good stead and closes the gap between where you are and where you desire to be. In life, you can either bridge the gap between the present and the future or broaden it. Those who close in on their goals are PURPOSEFUL people. They put a lot of stock into where they going, forgetting the past and getting over yesterday's success. This accounts for why they finish strong and emerge in the spotlight.
It goes without saying that someone who is PERSISTENT would not pitch his tent off the track because of his resolve not to drop the ball. Hence, it will not be inappropriate to say that those who fall by the way side often allow frustration to keep them on the sidelines and would never get to the end of the road. Hence, with persistence, you would be able to resist discouragement and frustration on your path to fulfilling purpose in life.
Sharing your goals with someone who wouldn't get on your wavelength can put you out of your stride. Some destiny wasters are out there to talk you out of your goals. Their mission could be to make you lose the drive to keep working full steam ahead. If you don't PART COMPANY with them, your destiny may hit a brick wall when you ought to be closing in to actualise your goal. May you not lose the momentum needed to keep you in your pursuit to reach your goal and finish strong in Jesus name
