When you get clear on what you want in life, you will be tested. Say, you decide the qualities you want in a partner, but then hear from an ex who doesn’t embody them and old feelings rush back. Will you cave? Or you meet someone who you really like, but something inside tells you it’s not quite right. Will you settle? Or you’re working hard toward your dreams, but it starts to get even harder than you anticipated. Will you give up?
I encourage you to keep pressing forward. It’s in these moments that you must prove how bad you want it. You’ll be tempted to give in and settle for the person or behavior that’s not in your best interest. But take heart, testing comes when you’re on the brink of a blessing. So when you’re tempted to step back into weakness, dig deep and know that your breakthrough is just within reach — you must simply pass the test.
