Freedom Friday: The Perserverance Edition

Hey Good People!

We are three weeks into the new year.  How’s it going so far?  🙂

I hope you are still motivated to stick with your goals for the year.  Just remember, the one who conquers is the one who endures.  In other words, perseverance is the key.  In a time when you can become an overnight sensation, we want everything right here and right now.  People put more time into avoiding the work or questioning why do I have to go through this, rather than getting to work.   We have to remember that it is the journey that provides the lessons.   So when the opportunity finally arrives, you know actually what to do (and appreciate it)!  I found this great video that talks about perseverance.

Regardless of your belief or value system, the premise is still the same.   You need the tools…patience, focus, courage, hard work, supportive people and faith…to push you towards the mark.

So whatever you said you were going to do this year, keep pushing. And if you have already fallen off, jump back on.

And in between your persevering, have some fun.  Check out some happenings!  Peace and Blessings.
