"When something is important enough to you, you do it even if the odds are not in your favor." This reminds me of so many people who have come and left this earth or are still here. When Thomas Edison was seeking to invent the electric light bulb, he didn't get it right the first time. It took him approximately 10,000 experiments to invent the perfect set-up for the light bulb. Abraham Lincoln had years of failures. He lost five different elections before he ran for president. One would have never thought he would have not only run for president after that but won the candidacy. Even computer giants like Apple and Microsoft did not have a quick out of the gate start. There was struggle in the beginning, but they kept going because they believed in the dream strongly. Nothing worthwhile ever comes easy. There will be some roadblocks, hindrances and even failures. People may laugh at you, doubt you can pull it off or even try to steal the dream right out of you. Do you think Bill Gates, Steve Jobs or Abe Lincoln would have gotten to the finish line had they given up along the way. People probably laughed at some of them but they kept pushing. No matter how much other people do not believe in what you are doing, you believe. Martin Luther King, Jr.'s dream would have never come to pass if it had not been important to him. What is important to you? People around you may not catch hold of it but that should not stop you. Even if the odds are badly in your favor you keep pushing toward the mark. Forget everything and everybody and even if you fail a time or two or three, try again because failure is not an option. That is how winners win.
"For God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten Son that whosoever believed in him would not perish, but have everlasting life." John 3:16
