So many times in life we settle for mediocrity. We come up with excuses why we can't pursue our goals, why we can't be happy in life, why we can't accomplish a dream. We get comfortable with ourselves and our surroundings and rather than tap into the potential that's in us, we settle for the mid part of the mountain. As long as we are making excuses, we will not be able to reach the peak of the mountain. We would justify staying right where we are, settling for less than God intended for us to have. When we become satisfied with mediocrity we start looking at our past and blaming others for being unfair or unjust to us when in reality it's not even about them. We ourselves are the only ones that can stop our progress. What God intends for us to have, we already have it.
The potential is there, it lies in us we just have to tap into it. When we become hurt or disappointed, we create yet another excuse why we can't move on and accomplish our goal. I challenge you today to step up to a new level. Refuse to live unhappy. Refuse to settle for mediocrity. In order to do so you must first let go of the excuses. Confront the hurt and deal with the pain of your past. Get real with God, confess to Him what He already knows. Seek healing and wholeness so you can overcome the obstacles that are holding you back. You are a child of The King and He loves you. He wants you to tap into your full potential and reach the top of the highest mountain. He has already prepared the way for you, so no more excuses. just do it.
