Look at the picture again…those words were scratched into a rock in the Grand Canyon. His trip proved to be impossible for him; the challenges of the journey wearied him. The way was rough, disappointing, and hopeless.
But he wasn’t the last to make the journey. Many have rafted down the Colorado River that runs through the Canyon far beyond the point of this inscription.
I want to encourage someone today to move past the negative. There will always be a person, or a team of people who think you will never get past their unrealized dreams or their failures. Don’t let the fact that someone else failed, never tried, or gave up keep you from pressing on. You were created for excellence, greatness and success! Let another’s lack of determination, faith and confidence inspire you to go farther and reach for more.
