Good day. Trust you are having a great time living. Exercising your resolves and engaging in processes that will better improve your living status.
Permit me to intrude a bit and share one of my Telecast’s teaching on the subject: THE REWARD OF PERSEVERANCE!
The most obvious evidence between a winner and somebody we all may consider a loser is the finish line. Most times, it’s not who crosses first, but whether they ever cross at all.
The reality is this, life is no 100metres dash, it is a marathon and not necessarily a competition, but a path we all must individually advance the course of our action.
So in the light of this opener, let me say that life only reward those who persevere. You can’t quit at the sight of every obstacle and expect a reward. You don’t go through life quitting everything. If you’re going to achieve anything you’ve got to stick with something.
“Stick with something” is the echoes of the game. It is best to describe perseverance as “commitment until death do you part”…letting only the parting gap between yourself and the task at hand be death. Cling to a course until you choke the success out of it.
Robert Brault insightfully puts it this way, “stubbornly persist and you will find that the limits of your stubbornness go well beyond the stubbornness of your limits.”
Of all forms of discipline staying power is one that every project initiator should possess, for it’s impossible to give credibility to any task that is not properly executed.
I personally think that every time a person embarks on any undertaking, he should mentally drag it to life’s marriage registry and then whisper loud to the hearing of his tripartite nature the words – “until death do me part”, only then will life with its limited arsenals, after a while, give up on you and go seeking another “human prey”, if you stay true to your ideology.
It is true that the road to success is dotted with many tempting parking places. But you must stay on the main lane, if you are targeting the finish line.
Listen, with ordinary ability and talent, but with extraordinary perseverance, all things are attainable no matter how difficult it may seem.
The simple fact remains, “he conquers who endures.”
Behold the immortal lines of Calvin Coolidge on the potency of forthright determination:
“Nothing in the world can take the place of persistence.
Talent will not: Nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent.
Genius will not: Unrewarded genius is almost a proverb.
Education will not: The world is full of educated derelicts.
Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent.”
POINT TO RUMINATE ON: “The greatest oak was once a little nut that held its ground.”
