Perseverance and self-reliance, two really important assets in our journey through life

     

   There are some truths in life that each man must discover for 
   himself.  One learns them in no other way.  One doesn't learn 
   them from books.  He doesn't learn them from other people.  
   He only learns them from his own discovery.  When we make a big 
   and important discovery on our own, then it registers.  
   Otherwise it doesn't register.  We learn by discovery.  We 
   learn from our own personal experience.  One thing this is true 
   for is that thing called persistence.  Some people are so lucky 
   as to discover for themselves the power, value and importance 
   of persistence.  They make that really great and amazing 
   discovery that with determination and perseverance they can do 
   anything.  They discover their own powers.  Other people never 
   discover this great truth.  They go through their entire lives 
   never sticking with anything, never completing anything, 
   jumping from one thing to another, failing in everything.  They 
   give up on everything almost before they start.  They have no 
   confidence at all in their own powers.  Perhaps the problem is 
   laziness.  Perhaps they are just too lazy to put in the effort.  
   Life is a struggle.  We don't get anything easy.  We have to 
   work for it.  Most of us have our weaknesses and handicaps.  
   Nature didn't give us everything.  We got slighted on some 
   things.  It is perseverance and determination that makes the 
   difference.  We have to overcome our weaknesses --- or work 
   around them.  Another great discovery that many never make is 
   the value of that thing called self-reliance.  Perseverance and 
   self-reliance, two really important assets in our journey 
   through life.
