COURAGE TO FULFIL YOUR PURPOSE
“Whatever you do, you need courage. Whatever course you decide upon, there is always someone to tell you that you are wrong. There are always difficulties arising that tempt you to believe your critics are right. To map out a course of action and follow it to an end requires some of the same courage that a soldier
needs. Peace has its victories, but it takes brave men and women
to win them.” – Ralph Waldo Emerson
Once you know your purpose in life, once you are sure what you are here on planet Earth for, it seems usual that before long a challenge will be made to you. It’s almost as if you are being tested to see whether you have the resolve, the determination, the courage that is needed to carry out your mission.
Friends and family may get scared, they may worry that they are going to lose you to this great purpose you have found. In fact it’s possible that many people die with their potential inside them for doing what they were supposed to do, because well meaning friends and family persuaded them to stick with the tribe.
Worse still once you put your head above the parapet you must expect to shot at. There will always be others who disapprove of your quest, the path that you have decided to walk. They will keep showing up with no apparent reason for wanting to distract you, other than they know that if you succeed they will be revealed as the ones who gave up too easily in trying to achieve the same goal themselves.
The difficulties you will face along the way to fulfilling your purpose are there to make you strong! All you need to succeed in your life’s calling is courage, bravery, determination, tenacity and that “never give up attitude.” Then you will know the exhilarating joy of victory!
