When you get off track

Every one who plans a journey knows that they need to chart the course from where they are, to where they want to go. They also need to take into account the time, cost and means to get there. As important as those three things are to completing a journey, the determination to get there probably overrides everything else.

As we journey through life, it is no different, we must have a plan and live according to that plan. From time to time, we get inundated with the busyness of life and the unpredictability of events which could have the effect of knocking us off course. Sometimes it feels like we have lost time, or the cost to continue is too great, or the means to get there are out of our hands. Whatever it is, the one thing that brings us back on track is our determination to get there.

Determination is not bound by time, it is not purchased with money, and it is not manufactured by any external means. If you have determination, you have arguably the most important ingredient for you to keep going. Do not let what you don’t have discourage you, rather use what you do have to push your way through.
