If you need some spiritual motivation to convince you that this is really the case, then consider the following inspirational words of encouragement from Romans 12:2
When it comes to achieving your dreams and your goals, there is no better attitude or skill to cultivate than tenacity. While we may sometimes be lucky enough to serendipitously be handed what we want, most people, the majority of the time, need to be relentless in the pursuit of their goals.
This doesn't mean that you need to become single-minded in your pursuit and that you need to eschew all other aspects of your life. Rather, a healthy kind of tenacity is the type that allows you to remain open and to be constantly on the lookout for opportunity. Go ahead and live your daily life, but, at the same time, keep your goals in the back of your mind. You should always be working towards them and taking any opportunity that comes along.
True, life is not as simple as wanting something and magically making it happen. Real economic and personal hardships can often get in the way, and there are many factors at play in our lives that are well beyond our individual control. Sometimes, unfortunately, it is not the case that those who work hard get justly rewarded.
But do not get too disheartened just yet. It is possible to give yourself and your dreams the best fighting chance by never giving up. Staying tenacious and always looking out for opportunities is one of the best ways to capitalize on a chance when it finally does come along. Sometimes the opportunities are there, but they require effort and willingness on your part if you are going to be able to see them.
Cultivating a habit of tenacity is also one of the best ways to make sure that you are living your life according to God's will. God's will for us and our lives can sometimes be tricky to surmise. The only way to truly find out what He wills for us is to live our lives to the fullest and take advantage of every opportunity that comes along, because all of our opportunities ultimately come from God. If you need some spiritual motivation to convince you that this is really the case, then consider the following inspirational words of encouragement from Romans 12:2:
"Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God's will is--his good, pleasing and perfect will."
God's will is always alive and evident in our lives, but the only way to see it is to constantly renew our minds by being tenacious and looking out for the signs of His guidance. You never know where your next opportunity is going to come from, and so the key is to always be ready and willing to jump on it. Be confident in your abilities. Know that you deserve to achieve your dreams because you work hard for them. Cultivate this mindset, and, before long, you will find yourself on the path that God has planned for you.
