Quote of the Day – 4/8/16 – Malcolm S. Forbes On Victory

“Victory is sweetest when you’ve known defeat.” -Malcolm S. Forbes

How could victory ever be worth it without struggle? Nobody wants the things that come too easily. I believe that people tend not to place much value on things that come too easily. I think we tend to take them for granted. As an only child, I know plenty about taking things for granted.

If you don’t have to work for something, then it doesn’t mean much to you. So, if you find yourself struggling in the pursuit of your calling, take that as a sign that you’re on the right track. If it seems like the work you’re doing is hard and sometimes thankless, then you’re working your way up to something special. You’re pursuing your calling, and every bit of toil will prove to be worth it.

Every late night, early morning, every grueling and dark hour when you can hardly think of anything you want to be doing less than fighting anymore, or every time you’re tempted to take the easy path but choose not to…it will all pay off in the end. Keep fighting for your calling, even in your darkest moments. I promise it will be worth it.

God bless y’all, and I pray that you keep at your good work.
