If I were to ask you what your greatest weakness is, what would your answer be?

Thomas Alva Edison once said, “Our greatest weakness lies in giving up.” – Would you agree with that statement?

I certainly think there’s a fair element of truth in that statement, as I can think of situations in my own life where I gave up just because things were getting a bit difficult. I’ve also seen friends and colleagues give up on their dreams and aims, because they haven’t had the confidence in their own ability or they’ve listened to some people around them who think they know better and have told them not to be so daft trying to do x or y as they’ll never do it!

That surely is a good example of how not to encourage or motivate others!

The greatest motivator you will ever find is God, as He believes in you always, no matter how ridiculous or far-fetched others may think your dreams are. So don’t give up, trust the great motivator, God, to keep you going and reach your goals.
