Everything goes through ups and downs. Relationships… Jobs… Churches… EVERYTHING.
When things begin, everything’s new and seems great. Everyone’s working hard and pulling together and early growth is obvious.
The beginning’s easy. No one struggles with motivation when they’re doing something brand new and different. But after time, routines form and reality sets in and motivation becomes a matter of will rather than feeling. After time, how you’re feeling isn’t nearly as important as what you’ve chosen to do.
And in the end, you won’t be remembered for how you felt in the beginning. Your legacy will be what you chose to do in the middle.
Choose to fight through the routine, refuse the discouragement and rediscover the joy of what you’re doing.
Your success depends on what you choose to do in the middle.
