Keep Reaching for the Stars in the Middle of a Storm
The stars. We know they are there. When the sun rises and scatters its rays across our world, the stars are still there. Goals like stars, will always be there. Whether or not we strive to reach them is up to us. A choice we must consciously make every day.
When we are setting a goal, we must change the way we think. We must remove all notion of doubt and realize that whatever may come our way we must prevail.
Storms will roll in, the skies will be dark. Along with the dark clouds the rain will coming falling down. It will feel as if the whole world is against you, to tell the truth it might. These hard times can discourage us, even defeat us. The dark times can derail you from your path if you let it.
Remember the stars beyond the rain, beyond the clouds. The stars are still out there shining bright, just like your goals. Unyielding, like you must be. Weather the storm, keep one foot in front of the other, keep moving. Every storm runs out of rain.
Don't forget what you are doing and why you are doing it. Reaching for your goals is a journey that you will look back on and say, "I never gave up!", with a smile and the sun, our own star, shining on your face.
So in life, when the storms come rolling in. Bringing with them the rain, thunder and lightning. Remember to reach for the stars even if you can't see them. For when the storm ceases and clears, you will be that much closer to your goal.
