Joy in Perseverance
I will persist until I succeed. Always will I take another step. If that is of no avail I will take another, and yet another. In truth, one step at a time is not too difficult... I know that small attempts, repeated, will complete any undertaking. ~ Og Mandino
Pick a big dream, a once in a lifetime dream, a song in your heart dream, a gift to mankind dream, a purpose-filling dream. Then run with it and persevere!
Feel gratitude for the time spent developing your talents. The joy is in the journey with its obstacles and surprises. When we reach the peaks on the first horizon, another horizon appears. What then?
Persevere again. Great missions are never achieved; they are lived. They continue to beckon us forward. They need constant tending, and in that tending are many small achievements. Beyond success is fulfillment more rewarding than any physical destination.
We are pulled forward purposely; life continuously seeks expansion. We were made to experience and participate in that joyful, creative flow of living energy. It's music is vigilance, and we are its dancers.
To persevere is to move in alignment and in harmony with life.
When you feel like your journey is becoming long and difficult, recall these enduring words spoken by John Quincy Adams (1767-1848): "Patience and perseverance have a magical effect before which difficulties disappear and obstacles vanish."
Ask yourself these questions: What is my personal journey?
What am I firmly committed to accomplishing during my lifetime?
What has stopped me from completing my goals in the past?
What do I need to believe to consistently work toward my goals and develop the habit of perseverance?
What joys do I experience each day while living the purpose I intend to fulfill?
What will I realize when I have completed my ultimate mission?
Whatever the answers, persevere. The God-given gifts inside you will carry you forward!
