Good things come to those who work.
Have you noticed that the things we want most in life don’t usually just fall in our lap?
The successes of others that we fawn over, the top notch athlete and the fearless leader we admire have all been through deep trenches of challenges, defeat, and self-doubt like everyone else. We place successful people on pedestals and wish we were like them. What we don’t see are all of the hundreds of hours spent preparing, practicing and failing. These tough times are what build them up and allow them to step up to difficult tasks & succeed.
The toughness that is being tested and strengthened through each of these struggles is perseverance.
What is perseverance? It is steady persistence in a course of action or purpose, in spite of difficulties, obstacles or discouragement.
Fortunately and unfortunately for us, life is full of struggles that we must overcome to experience and appreciate the triumph of accomplishment. Without the negatives, the positives wouldn’t be as great.
Keeping these thoughts in mind will allow your perseverance to hold true to get you to your next goal.
There will be tough times and challenges that we will face that seem unconquerable, however we always find a way to adapt and make things work…
