“The future rewards those who press on. I don't have time to feel sorry for myself. I don't have time to complain. I'm going to press on.” – Barack Obama
Those are good words for us to hear when things feel difficult. When we lose a job, when we have health problems, or when the organisation we manage is facing many challenges. There is little value in feeling sorry for ourselves or complaining. Feeling sorry and complaining simply take up time. Pressing on with whatever our role calls for is what is required. Let’s press on together today.
I press on to reach the end of the race and receive the heavenly prize for which God, through Christ Jesus, is calling us. – Philippians 3:14 (NIV)
