Persistence Perseverance and Patience

Persistence Perseverance Patience








I find a magical combination in the three P’s – Persistence, Perseverance and Patience.  Persistence provides possibilities that may have never seen the light of day. To succeed at anything in life requires persistence with a good dash of perseverance and patience thrown in!

Living in the busy world of ever growing new technologies, social media and distractions of the outer world, how do we keep up? What can we do to get back to center, to the core a balanced life? How do we use these three important P’s in our favor?

Persistence – To continue a course of action despite difficulty, opinions or opposition. Refusing to give up by persevering. This quote says it all, “If it is important to you, you will find a way. If not, you’ll find an excuse.”

Perseverance – Steadfast determination, remaining constant to a purpose.  “Dripping water hollows out stone, not through force but through persistence.” -Ovid

Patience – This requires control over your thoughts, words, and actions. Persevere in the face of delay without acting in a negative manner. Many a reward has made it’s way to you by your ability to be patient. “Have patience. All things are difficult before they become easy.” -Saadi

Never give up, stay true to your desired course, put a smile on your face taking action where needed with a knowing that what you desire is on it’s way to you. Be gentle with yourself. We will never get it all done in this busy world we live in. Do what you love, utilize the three P’s in areas that are most important to you, and make sure to enjoy all you have set into motion.
