If you are just beginning your journey towards a healthier lifestyle, or just looking to push yourself physically, or perhaps watching the Olympic athletes compete has made you wanting your inner champion to come out, it can be extremely challenging.
Perhaps you have been writing for years and desire to publish a book.
Or you have been acting on local stages and are now ready for primetime. Whatever the case may be, striving towards our goals and dreams can be a daunting journey.
And frustrating if we are perfectly honest.
But I absolutely loved this latest ad by Nike that I saw the other night while watching the US Women’s Gymnastics team strike Gold.
We have to start somewhere.
And we all can achieve our goals regardless whether those goals are to be a world class athlete, a successful businessman/woman, a missionary overseas, a talented entertainer or a hungry author.
It takes time, commitment, discipline, patience and yes, some failure.
But we all can discover our inner champion.
Philippians 4:13 I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.
What are you hopes and dreams? Have you prayed over them? What do you hope to achieve in your lifetime?
