Canyons So Grand, But How?

Posted by kelvinbroadus on July 9, 2017 at 12:50 AM

About a month ago, I had the pleasure of going to the Grand Canyon for the first time. We were in Utah for a family reunion, and one of the activities was to go hiking there. Normally, when I go on trips with my wife, we go to places in the Caribbean – always looking for a beach – and rarely explore the continental U.S. In fact, I’ve traveled much more outside of the U.S. than actually within it. Nevertheless, it was a very interesting trip and it showed me some of the vast beauty that exists within my own country, encouraging me to see more of the major tourist spots that are available.

Unfortunately, the pictures from the trip don’t even begin to give justice to the amazing scenery as it appears in person. But, they do provide some insight into the magnificence of the Grand Canyon, and why it is so deserving of the title, grand.

As I looked over the rails, and from the top of the rock I was standing on, I simply thought to myself, “how is this thing so gigantic and astonishing?” As I reflect on it, two words come to mind: time and consistency. This canyon, the mountains, the lakes, and so forth did not become so impressive overnight. It also was not time alone. Actually, it was the consistency of erosion over extended time that made the difference. In such, we all can learn a lot by applying those principles to our own lives.

Far too often, we desire to have these amazing accomplishments occurring in our lives. We want to start this billion-dollar company, be the best athlete or performer, excel in our studies, or improve our health. We have all of these dreams of grandeur and desire for our own situations to be as awe inspiring as these natural attractions. Yet, we don’t want to put in the work consistently enough to make a difference. No matter what you want to accomplish, however, you must put in the work. You must apply the productive steps needed, consistently and over time, in order to achieve it. There is no way around it.

Success is not something that occurs overnight, and for the rare times that it does, it normally doesn’t last because people don’t know how to maintain what they didn’t have to learn how to build. But don’t be discouraged! You truly can accomplish anything you desire. It takes work, it takes time, and it takes consistency. If you don’t give up, your dreams will come true!
