This theme of perseverance was calling in the focus on what you really want to persevere. Is it about continue in a course of action even in the face of difficulty or with little or no indication of success? So, setting the goal without knowing how long it will take or even if it will be a success. Just because the passion and desire to achieve your goal is all the motivation you need. This will fuel the journey. Because that is what it is about. A journey that you want to start. Just because you know it will bring you fulfilment, or gratitude, or peace of mind.
Perseverance to follow the heart’s desire for instance. Just because you know it will be all worth it. Along the way, every challenge that may pop up will be tackled, and overcome. Just as long you hold the end goal in vision, heart, mind. You can persevere being an athlete for instance. Working as hard as possible, training hours to become better. Preferably the best. Making use of your talent, your mindset to have the determination as well to be the best you can be. It is also about courage, to work as hard as you can despite the obstacles along the way. Like disappointment when you can not win a race.
You can pick so many challenges when you want to excel in something you can do best. Being a great student, to become what you want to be. Anything that might get in the way, asks for perseverance to stay on course so to speak. Life is like that as well. It is about the journey and all the obstacles and challenges we encounter growing up. From dust till dawn so to speak. Every age has its own obstacles. It requires a certain amount of believing in yourself as well. Which is also depending on the way you have been stimulated from childhood on to be the best version of yourself.
There are so many times you might doubt the possibility even to get where you want to be. Whatever you have set for yourself, it is part of growing up. It is part of learning to deal with failures and difficulties. How resilient you can be to just push through and following your track in life. Some people are more determined to achieve their goals than others. It is also may be part of a character, how bold and daring you can be. To hold on to a dream and going for it to achieve, despite what it may bring you in the end. Is also about desire and passion.
Every step along the way will bring you a sense of reward when you succeed. Till the next step, you want to move forward. Not staying in the same space, if that is not the outcome you have visioned for your self. Yet it will be like fuel to go through with your journey to fulfil your dreams. It also may take some time to receive fully what each step holds for you. Sometimes it is not so much about material success. It also may be a challenge and struggle to deal with physical disabilities, how to handle trauma, emotional or physical.
To be able to persist even though it might all seem to be so hard to do. To deal with a body that is not always able to stay in balance. Or with a stress disorder caused by trauma on many levels. To be as healthy and happy you can be, making progress and staying on top of it. The mindset, the determination, to pick your self up every time you have a setback. Yet every time you have crossed a boundary it will bring in joy and excitement as well to achieve.
Time to receive a sense of gratitude. Or when it takes so much of your energy and perseverance, to be able to use it for the next step. It is not set in stone how far you can come in this journey we call life. Nor can we foresee what obstacles and challenges we may encounter. Sometimes you need to pick yourself up, dust yourself off. Maybe even want to stop because it is so difficult and hard to find the energy to move forward. It is not about failing, is it? It is about how you use every challenge you must face, to receive positive energy as well. This is the fuel to push you to keep on moving.
For the reward in moving forward, stay on track, without any knowledge about what is next to come, is always needed to keep you going. It is about self-worth as well, self-love and having faith in your self isn’t it? To be confident and know what you are capable of when life throws you another curveball. There may be many tests during your life, it all depends on how you want to tackle them. With a positive attitude, you will regain way more. It will allow you to stay strong and trust the ability you possess to deal with it.
Taking each day as it comes, will allow you to be able to persevere in your journey. Also, allow a helping hand when the going gets tough. Don’t’ be afraid to ask for assistance if you need it. It is not failure; it is a symbol of strength to reach out. It takes a lot of courage and character to acknowledge you need some assistance. It also builds character they say. Yet it is also about receiving, allowing, to move forward and turn a new corner.
With love and understanding, you will be able to persevere to reach out for your goal, even if it is not the end goal you imagined.
One step at a time, one day at a time.
And so, it will be done.I'd like to receive weekly articles in my inbox
