“What do we say to the God of Death? ‘Not today'”
Do you remember those lines from season 1 (or is it 2) of “Game of Thrones?”
Today, and always, as you work on your dreams, goals, aspirations, and life’s work, let that be your answer to that ugly voice of discouragement. When it whispers, speak out against it; and when it speaks, then shout out loud “Not today!”
Sometimes – as you see the pain, suffering, and hopelessness around you – you will feel like you are helpless and that your inputs will be meaningless amidst the ocean of troubles and problems; but that’s not true. The truth is, if you refuse to give up and keep improving yourself and what you contribute, your work will soon begin to bear great fruits. And you will look back one day to ask, ‘When did I do all of this?’
So, when discouragement comes to stop you, just say NEVER!
