Episode #26: Don't Throw in the Towel
If you’re tempted to give up on something, tune in to this episode first! This inspirational message is all about how not to throw in the towel, even when you feel ready to admit defeat. We all get tired along the way, and want to give up at times, but I’m here to help you keep on keeping on with what God told you to do.
Of course, there are some things that we need to quit, but you shouldn’t give up on your divine purpose. Your best days are still ahead of you, and the most amazing moments in your past were just a warm-up for what’s still to come!
Today I’ll give you three powerful ways not to throw in the towel, even when the road feels rough. First, assess the situation and figure out why you’re doing what you’re doing. Is there anything you need to do differently, or that you’re doing because of a request rather than because your heart is in it?
Know that not every good thing is a God thing. This means that not every opportunity that comes your way is something you need to say “yes” to. Instead, you need to find out if any given opportunity is in alignment with your goals, priorities, and purpose.
Next, remember why you got started along this path. Holding on to your “why” can provide the motivation that you need to stay strong. When you lose your “why,” you can lose your way.
Finally, get help! If you’re in that messy middle part of your path, and more opportunities are coming your way than you know what to do with, get help by hiring someone to take some of the load off of you. Instead of throwing in the towel, let someone else take some things off your plate to free up your bandwidth for what you really need to do!
