MINUTE WITH MAXWELL
TODAY’S STATEMENT OF STRENGTH
“You will never see the end if you give up in the middle.” -Joyce Meyer
Hi, John Maxwell here. Welcome to Minute with Maxwell. Of course, we are still continuing to talk about statements of strength to help you and myself and all of us through this very difficult time in our lives. And today I'm going to read a statement from Joyce Meyer, my wonderful friend. She said, ‘You will never see the end if you give up in the middle.’ So simple, so true.
You see, no one ever quit their way to success. That just doesn't happen. In fact, when I was a very young leader, I was greatly influenced by a mentor who pretty much taught tenacity and making sure you see everything through to the end. And I remember one day, now this is before all the wonderful technical things we have in life now. That's when we still had books that were dictionaries. I took my dictionary book off the shelf. And I went to the word quit, and I took my pair of scissors and I literally cut it out of my dictionary. And I said to myself, It's not in my dictionary, it's not in my life. Well, Joyce is just basically saying if you quit in the middle, you've gone halfway but it doesn't really matter; you'll never see the end. Just recently, I was in Israel with a group of leaders and friends. So, we decided to climb Masada. I've done that before. I've gone up and down in the very same day. But now that I'm 73, I wasn't really sure that I could do it. But I thought I'd give it a shot, and so off we went. Mark Cole was with me. We got up about halfway and he could tell I was getting pretty worn out and tired. And he said, ‘John, just look back and then look up.’ And I did, and he said, ‘You're halfway.’ He said, ‘You don't want to stop now, ‘You really don't, you're halfway there.’ He was right.And I'm going to say to you, in the middle of a crisis, don't give up. Keep the faith. Don't stop or you'll never see the end.
Thanks for being with me today on Minute with Maxwell.
