When things get tough, and you feel sad or overwhelmed, look up at your challenge, and say, “I can do this!”
Just take one step at a time. A few steps, and you will be on your way again. Don’t give up.
If the path is rocky and rough, take your time, place your steps carefully, but keep on walking. If roadblocks get in your way, find a way around them or go over them.
Be a leader, and others will follow even when things get hot. Look back every once in a while to see how far you’ve come.
If the way seems steep, find some shade, take a rest, drink some water, then start again.
If danger stands in your way, find a way around it, then move on.
If long shadows cross your path, turn and look for a brighter path.
Stop and admire your surroundings but keep heading towards your goal.
Be mindful of your environment and take care of it.
Your goal is just ahead. Keep striving for it. Persistence and determination are the keys. You can do it.
See, you did it. Now reward yourself for your accomplishments.
