Proverb on Perseverance

woman-climbing-a-mountain.jpgI have found the following guiding thought to be true:

If you get up one more time than you fall, you will make it through.

Chinese Proverb

This notion will work in your life if you apply it wisely and consistently.

But please do not mistake perseverance for passion. Don’t just get through it because you have to and you hate it (although, admittedly, this is sometimes required to get what you really want).

If you truly want something and this thing that you want is something you (and at least one other person, hopefully) know you are uniquely qualified for … then do it. Don’t hesitate. Speed, in most cases, is good.

Sometimes you will have to try harder than you thought you’d have to. But if you are truly talented and keep producing, the odds are highly skewed in your favor.
