How would you feel if you realized at the twilight of your life on earth that every good thing that you ever could think about, you could have achieved if you attempted to do them? Yes, you then realize, only belatedly that ‘whatever your mind can conceive and believe, it can achieve.” – Napoleon Hill.
How would you feel about all the great innovative ideas you were afraid to pursue? What if at that future time, aptly described by Ecclesiastics, you realize that the obstacles of this life, the ones you faced in all endeavors didn’t come to kill or crush you but to test your determination, to test whether you were worthy? How would you feel if you caved into all obstacles that tested your values; muddled your plans, challenges & roadblocks that obscured your vision? How would you feel when you find out they were all training exercises meant to make you strong for the great things you petitioned God?
Having done a time travel into the future & found that everything you dream of you can achieve & that those obstacles, including failures, were nothing but a path to success, what will you attempt to do now that you know you can not fail?
*Eccle. 12: 2- 7.
