The Power Of Passion Through Perseverance
Persistence Is Faith In Action
“Persistence is simply another word for faith; because if you didn’t have faith, you would never persist.” – Earl Nightingale; The Strangest Secret
You may be experiencing some rough times in life. You may feel beat down, stepped on, called names and spit on. Everything you want to do right seems to go wrong.
But I know that you can not fail unless you decide to quit. Yes, you have to make the decision to fail. And you can only fail when you choose to quit.
The words decide and choose were carefully used to demonstrate the fact that it is up to you whether or not you succeed or fail.
I know about success because I continue to choose persistence and perseverance towards my goals each and every single day no matter what.
I can communicate success from experience because I have faith in my abilities to succeed. And this is why no matter what, I will continue to win on my terms.
Persistence Is Faith In Action. You must continue to act on your faith in order to succeed. This is just as much practical as it is metaphysical.
I have experienced so much hardship in my life. but I do not blame anyone. I do not blame myself either. I simply take responsibility and do what needs to be done.
An example I like to use is that of exercise. A lot of people will tell you that the more you exercise, the easier exercising will be.
But this is not entirely accurate. It is not the full truth of the matter. When you lift 10-pounds or run a mile, the weight and the distance is the same the next time.
You may experience less difficulty when you continue to be persistent with your exercise routine. But this is not because there is less weight or a shorter distance.
Gravity is constant and the 10-pounds is still 10-pounds. One mile is still 5,280 feet of distance to travel. These things do not change.
It is you that changes. Things do not become easier. You are the one that becomes better. The experience of ease is relative to your personal development.
Things do not become easier, you are becoming better and better. And you become better by first knowing and having faith that you will be better.
Persistence Is Faith In Action. In order to succeed at anything you have to keep moving forward in the direction of your goals. Action is the surest way.
I am continually in action. Because of this, my life is filled with rich experiences of going new places and meeting wonderful people.
I know a lot of other people who complain about being bored and lack of opportunities. But these are the people who literally stay at home all day.
The people who fail to have amazing life experiences that are a wealth of enrichment and excitement actually lie around and wait for things to come.
The sedentary life will fatten you up and make you sick with high blood pressure, stress, anxiety, boredom, depression and disease.
An active life will keep you fit, healthy, relaxed, calm, invigorated, vibrant, curious, alert, joyful, patient, excited and a bit eccentric even.
But you will be living to the fullest and opening the doors of opportunity all along the way because you will be traveling to where the happenings are.
Wake up each day and give gratitude with your first breath for the new day you have before you. Wipe your face if you cried yourself to sleep and go again.
Persistence Is Faith In Action. This is the way that I live and so I know the truth of it all from direct and continued experience. My life is not perfect but it feels like it.
Because no matter how many mistakes I make or whatever obstacles or challenges I face i go on through it with an optimistic outlook based on goal centered action.
I know exactly where I want to go and what I want to do and so I just go about figuring out how to do it by any means necessary while benefiting all whom i effect if possible.
If you have no goals you are like a car in full throttle and the brakes off with no driver. You will crash and burn and you should not wonder why.
But too many live like this and wonder why. You have to plan and have some direction or goal or you crash and burn. You must direct your action with mindful planning.
And you must not just go through the motions. For this is like the walking dead and not real life. Just doing without goals or direction is like slavery.
You can work and do what you must to have food, shelter and clothing; but know what your greater goal and passion is all the while.
You can do anything you put your mind to. But you must put your mind to something. if you do not control your mind and life, someone else certainly will.
Every day in every way you can get better and better. The choice is really yours no matter what good and noble thing it is that you wish to do.
But you must get up into action and go make it happen. Sure there will be obstacles and challenges. I have had so many downs and struggles.
Your heart will break. You may become homeless. You may lose your job. A family member or loved one dies. You are starving for food or for companionship.
I understand these things. I feel you. I know what it is like to have my ass kicked by life every once in a while. You can only run into obstacles when you are in action.
Sitting still may feel safe, but you are going no where. There is no opportunity in shutting down and staying inside all day long. We will feel pain and hurt by moving.
But a lot of people seem to think I do not and it is because of the way I handle my challenges. It is not what happens but what we do with what happens.
look to the ocean and see four ships going different directions while only one wind blows. One goes North, one South, one East and another West.
It is not the blowing of the wind but the setting of the sails. How will you set your sails? Will you set your sails at all?
This is The Power Of Passion Through Perseverance. Persistence Is Faith In Action. What kinds of action will you take? The choice is always yours. Do it now!
