It has been said, “He who labors diligently need never despair, for all things are accomplished by diligence and labor.” Proverbs 13:4 (NKJV) says, “The soul of a lazy man desires, and has nothing; but the soul of the diligent shall be made rich.” And Proverbs 10:4 (NKJV) further says, “He who has a slack hand becomes poor, but the hand of the diligent makes rich.”

When faced with discouragement, struggles, and disappointments while pursuing your dreams, don’t give up. I like what Joel Osteen says, “You must make a decision that you are going to move on. It won’t happen automatically. You will have to rise up and say, ’I don’t care how hard this is, I don’t care how disappointed I am, I’m not going to let this get the best of me. I’m moving on with my life.’” Deuteronomy. 31:6 (NKJV) says, “Be strong and of good courage, do not fear nor be afraid of them; for the Lord your God, He is the One who goes with you. He will not leave you nor forsake you.” And it was Winston Churchill, who said “Never, never, never give up.”
