“Nothing in this world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not: nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not: the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent.” – Calvin Coolidge.
What does it mean to be Persistent… The definition is as follows.
per·sist·ent pərˈsist(ə)nt/ adjective 1. continuing firmly or obstinately in a course of action in spite of difficulty or opposition. 2. continuing to exist or endure over a prolonged period.
It comes down to doing the daily work. Regardless of circumstance or difficulty, you move anyway.
And it is… yet, simple does not mean easy.
I’ve come face to face with this over the last few weeks with a move and remodel.
My schedule has been shot to hell, my workouts infrequent, my morning routine largely fucked.
This will pass as I remaster my life in a new environment.
I have to reminds myself to be grateful for the challenge and the lessons and to just take the next step.
All at once… it’s too much. So, I just take a step. Then another and another.
And in this way I #honorthework in front of me, and shape my present and future by acting in the now.
Soon, my routine will be back to 100% and all the difficulty will be a funny story told over drinks.
How about you.
What do you want? What steps are you taking today to attain it… even a small step toward your target is a step in the right direction.
The gym, the relationship, the life you want are just results of your daily action.
What will you use your power to act on today? It’s up to you to move you.
Remember: There is #norestfortheworthy.
It’s be. do. have… in that order. Who will you be today?
