Happy new week! last week I talked about believing in your dream. This week, I will be talking about persistence!
When I thought about this week’s post, my mind replayed a superbike racing I was watching on television moments before writing. One of the bikers had a distability while racing and a part of the bike came off. He regained his balance and continued racing. Along the way, he stopped by the mechanics and they checked the bike out before he proceeded and eventually he still made the second position.
Now, I was wondering why he did not quit, why he tried to regain composure and continue the journey, why-despite stopping-he still picked his bike and started again! That is persistence! He knew no one could stop him except he decided to stop! He continued and still made success.
I will share a quote from Thomas Carlyle, pause, ponder and act!
“Permanence, perseverance and persistence in spite of all obstacles, discouragements, and impossibilities: It is this, that in all things distinguishes the strong soul from the weak.”
Don’t stop as long as you know you are in the right direction. It’s sometimes discouraging to see obstacles on your way but like they say “winners never quit, quitters never win”
Have a successful week! CHEERS!
