“Being defeated is often a temporary condition. Giving up is what makes it permanent.” Marlene Savant
It has taken me a long time to learn true persistence. I used to give up easily in certain areas of my life – to walk away when I couldn’t do something well right off the bat. I seemed to think that if it was hard – then maybe I shouldn’t do it, it wasn’t right for me. While I remain a HUGE proponent of working from one’s strengths and going where the flow is – I also have come to believe in the value of working past defeat. Learning to change my approach, take a rest before trying again, and always remembering what the bigger picture and goal is.
