Tomorrow’s dreams are dependent on today’s hard work. It is far too easy to get lost in what you want to have happen instead of focusing on what is in the here and now. I will fully admit that I have been guilty of this far too often. As a highly goal driven person sometimes it easy to live in the future instead of focusing on what has to be done TODAY.
When training for an Ironman race it is hard to think about the magnitude of the race distance when it was almost a year away. The key is to focus on the training needed to do for a specific week, and then the even more specific effort that you need to put forth on a given day. Having a plan, trusting that plan, and doing the work on a daily basis is the reason that you can go into the race without any fear or nervousness about completing the 140.6 miles ahead of you. If you have done the hard work then you are prepared for the day ahead.
Being prepared for whatever God has planned for us means that we have to put in the hard work each and every day.
