Move Forward With the End in Mind

One of the hardest things for us to accept is that we just don’t know everything. We constantly have questions about the past, present, or future that we can’t seem to find the answers to. It becomes hard to pursue something when you don’t know exactly where it will lead, how long it will take to get there, and what you will need to sacrifice; but, sometimes what we need to do is all we can do. Move toward what you know is right and believe that it will work out in the long run. Easier said than done, right? It is hard to invest in something that is so difficult without knowing if it will all pay off, but trust me when I say, one way or another, if it is right, it will pay off. I know that this may be little consolation because it still leaves many questions unanswered like, “when will it pay off?” But my advice is to move forward with the end in mind, and try not to think about things that have little importance in the long run. If we spend all our time concerned with the little details then we will ultimately miss out on our main goal. As we are laboring to restore liberty, it may seem like our efforts are making little difference, but think about what we are working towards, a country enveloped in the arms of liberty and free from the bonds of tyranny, and suddenly the difficulties that accompany this task seem to disappear. Niccolò Machiavelli taught, “where the willingness is great, the difficulties cannot be great.” What we do is just a small role in the ultimate restoration of liberty, but it could have a lasting and powerful effect. We must never forget what we are working towards, otherwise we will be consumed with worry about the trials and difficulties that lie ahead, and forget about the blessings that come because of them. 

Yours truly,

Publius
