Wisdom often arrives in plain language.
One example is this quote from the works of Lewis Carroll. In this small nugget of writing is the truth to all achievement.
Every person who ever set out to accomplish something amazing followed this plan. They started right at the very beginning and didn’t quit until they arrived at their destination. The people who never seem to get anything done stopped somewhere between the middle and the end.
If you ever plan on doing something impressive, you will meet many challenges. Every one of these obstacles is a chance to either double your commitment or to quit entirely. If you choose the latter, your journey ends. If you persist and muddle on against all the odds eventually, you get to the finish line.
Someone Who Continues to Fight Is Nearly Impossible to Defeat
Don’t kid yourself; perseverance is the central concept of positive thinking. The philosophy dictates that you must endure through your struggle without losing grasp of the finer points of your nature. Thinking of yourself as already having completed a goal gives you a boost. Use your imagination to inspire you to keep on slogging, even when don’t feel up to the task.
If you have been neglecting your journey, start again. Not all achievements are the result of linear effort. You CAN revisit any goal you have and start again if needed. This time, don’t quit until you finish your task! Ultimately, there’s no reason to consider even your most aborted efforts as failure. You have the starting part of the formula down pat. Now, just with on the “sticking with it” component.
Experience pure joy and liberation when you move forward. Certainly, the past has its share of lessons, but your greatest achievements all take place in the future. Follow your dreams and shape that future into anything you want by starting and following through until the end.
