Learning something new and making changes in your life can bring its challenges.
Are you yearning for improvement or growth?
Have you tried, failed, and then tried again?
Why me? Again?
Well, I don’t know ‘why you’. But, if it makes you feel any better, it happens to me too!
Sometimes, things just go wrong.
One of my favourite poems on this subject was written by William Edward Hickson
‘Tis a lesson you should heed–
If at first you don’t succeed,
Then your courage should appear;
For if you will persevere,
You will conquer, never fear,
Once or twice though you should fail,
If you would at last prevail,
If we strive, ’tis no disgrace
Though we did not win the race–
What should you do in that case?
If you find your task is hard.
Time will bring you your reward,
All that other folk can do,
Why with patience should not you?
Only keep this rule in view,
As we try, persevere, and help others to do the same.
“Try and keep on trying until that which seems difficult becomes possible—and that which seems only possible becomes habit and a real part of you.” – Dieter F. Uchtdorf.
Perseverance and not giving up is not some monumental, herculean act, it is simply a series of baby steps that you just keep taking, every day.
The picture is of Emma Bair, teaching me a new pose, whilst waiting on our new arrivals at Schiphol.
I think she found me quite trying!?
What do you need to keep trying at today?
