With ordinary talents and extraordinary perseverance, all things are attainable.Thomas Fowell Buxton
How many of you want to achieve your goals?
I know for the fact that many of you does including me. Here’s one of the secret to achieve it which is to PERSEVERE. Many people fail to reach their goals not because they are not talented enough, skillful enough or smart enough but because they are not patient enough. Many times when people find that something is not working out, they quit, when they think why is taking them so long, they quit, when something is not happening fast, they quit.
Here’s the thing, we should not quit during hardships and disappointments but rather to persevere though hardships and disappointments. It was never about how fast you reach your goal but rather how long you stay to reach your goal. Many thought to spear ahead in your life, we got to have speed but the truth of the matter is we got to have perseverance.
Life is not a 100 meter dash but rather is more like a full marathon race. You see, many people never completed the finishing line in a marathon because they give up too quickly. But those who completed the marathon are those who persevere through the race. Quitting was never their option in their mind. You may ask “Are they tired?“. and the answer is “Yes, Absolutely, they are tired.” But the thing is this, they persevered through it. And because of that, they are the ones who completed the race.
It’s not how fast you get there but how long you stay.Patty Berg
Therefore, in your life, no matter what your goals are, remember to persevere through all difficulties. failure, hardship, setbacks and disappointments. It will be tough, but remember, you are tougher. Be stubborn on your goals and be flexible in your plan. Last thing, to spear ahead in your life, is not how quickly you go forward but how long you stayed to go forward.
