There’s Power In The Word UNTIL…

I have a question for you. How long should a baby try to walk before you tell them to give up trying? Think about that for a second. How long would you give a baby to learn to walk before you tell them enough is enough! Just give up trying!

Now some of the mothers out there are probably reading this and thinking to themselves, “Is this guy crazy!! I would never tell my baby to give up trying! He/she will keep trying to walk UNTIL they walk!” And I agree with you mothers. We should never tell our children to give up. But we should also never tell ourselves to give up either.

You see, there’s something special about that word ‘UNTIL.’ And this one word carries more power than we give it credit. We must remember the power of this word while on our journey towards our goals and dreams.

Promise yourself that you will keep going UNTIL you reach your goals and dreams! You must keep reading books UNTIL you develop your skills! You will keep listening UNTIL it makes sense! You will keep practicing UNTIL you’re good at it! You must keep going UNTIL you make it no matter how long it takes! You will go step-by-step and day-by-day UNTIL it happens for you!!

And if you‘re willing to do this and pay the price for your dream, this is when life will begin to share some of its most valuable treasures with you.

Keep fighting for your dreams UNTIL you reach them.

  9. Nice analogy at the top, Kris—so well drives the point home that we must never, ever give up on our dreams. One of my favorite quotes is by British author George Eliot, who said, “It is never too late to be what you might have been.” How true—persevere—keep walking towards that goal—it is never too late. (Thanks for sharing this, Nick!)
