Ika Adage #3: The Sun



The sun portrays a prime example of persistence and consistency. It completes its journey from the East to the West without rest every single day for as long as God wants it with no complaints. Thinking about it, the sun has a huge responsibility. Do you know how many things depend on it for survival? Plants, humans, the solar system etc. It’s no surprise the sun has a huge responsibility in the existence of things known and unknown. Why? Because the sun is a star and “to whom much is given, much is expected” Imagine Earth without the sun? Or what if the sun stops halfway due to obstruction from the wind or it was “too tired” to rise.
Relating this to humans, you should always strive to complete the goals you set for yourselves and whatever you do, do it with consistence despite the challenges you are/will face. Or don’t you think the sun has it’s own challenges? Clouds, thunder storms, eclipses but even with these obstacles, it always makes it to the end. I don’t think the sun has any “motivation” to keep shining or even knows how much is at stake if it decides to slack. The sun doesn’t have any shoulder to cry on when it’s having a bad day and vacation doesn’t exist in its dictionary. Talk about the pressure! But it still keeps doing its thing, consistently
So the next time you set a goal and are clouded with worry and/or fear of the challenges you might face, always remind yourself of the prize, the light at the end of the tunnel. Stay consistent. Stay persistent. It doesn’t matter how fast or slow you’re moving AS LONG AS you’re moving. You will weather the storm and like the sun, reach your final destination. No one ever said it’d be easy but If the sun does what it does without any support, you’re in a much better place. Find what motivates you. Hold on to God. Surround yourself with positive people and things. Get going and like the sun, shine bright no matter what.
