Does it look as if it is not working, keep on. Does it look as if it is not going to be fruitful, keep on. Does it look as if it is not yielding the expected and desired result, keep on. Is discouragement about to set in, keep on. Are you tempted to call it quit, never! keep on. Time comes in the life of a man when he is fully engaged in doing something. Time come in the life of a man when he is bound to take step. Time comes in the life of a man when he is bound to make moves. However, not every step you take is bound to work out. It is not every move that you make that will be successful. It is not every idea that you come up with that will fly. No matter the outcome, there is a reason for it. Keep moving. Martin Luther King Jr. of blessed memory said “If you can’t fly then run, if you can’t run then walk, if you can’t walk then crawl, but whatever you do you have to keep moving forward.”. He was saying in essence that staying at a spot wasn’t permitted. He was saying that stagnancy wasn’t allowed. He was saying that staying idle wasn’t permitted. He was saying that against all odd keep doing something. No matter the challenge, no matter the discouragement, no matter the pain. Continue doing it! Keep on keeping on!
It’s for a Purpose
Some things happens in life to make us learn and understand certain things. Some things happens in life to take us to the next level. While some things also happens to expose us to new realities. Certain thing happens as a process for a change of status. If it didn’t work as planned, don’t relent or give up. If it seems not to be moving, don’t sit and cry. If It didn’t sell as expected, don’t sit and sulk. If it didn’t work well today, tomorrow is another day. Tomorrow is another day to begin afresh. Tomorrow is another day to get it right. Tomorrow is another day to do it well. Tomorrow is another opportunity to stand out. Tomorrow is another opportunity to work it out. Tomorrow is another opportunity to begin again more intelligently. Tomorrow is another opportunity to approach it tactically. Tomorrow will definitely be a plus if we don’t allow the situation to weigh us down.
Don’t be Deterred
Chinese and Japanese meaning for the word ‘crisis’ are similar and it means ‘opportunity’. Until you come to the understanding that for every disapproval or disappointment from man lies great opportunity, your life will never take shape. It is not everyone that will believe in you. It is not everyone that will believe in your dream. It is not everyone that will commend you. It is not everyone that will buy into your vision. It is not every one that will approve you. When men have said no to you, don’t sit and complain. When men have ended it on you, don’t sit and cry. When men don’t believe in you, don’t be depressed. If it didn’t go as planned, don’t give up on it. Every action meted on you is for a reason. It is an indirect awakening. It could be an indirect way of telling you that you need to own something. It could be an indirect way of telling you that you need to start up something. It could be an indirect way of telling you to hold on to what you are doing and improve on it. It could be an indirect way of telling you not to give up on yourself and on what you are doing.

Avoid Short Cut
I have come to understand that short cuts doesn’t pay. It seem beneficial immediately but on the long run, it is not worth it. Anything gotten through short cut is bound to cut one short. It could cut one’s life short, it could cut one’s career short, it could cut one’s destiny and purpose short. Though it might be a fast approach which will give fast result but it’s effect will also be fast. The career of some talented folks has ended because they followed short cut. Most businesses has crumbled because they followed short cut. The life of some student has been cut short because they followed short cut. You can’t follow short cut and your life remains the same.
