Perseverance is the hard work you do after you get tired of doing the hard work you already did. ~ Newt Gingrich

images6H6ZKLGWWhen I saw the above quote on my Twitter feed, I felt encouraged!

I’ve never minded putting in the hard work it takes to get something I really want.

In fact, I had a boss who called me a workhorse!

My struggle comes when I’ve done everything I know to do and my desired outcomes do not come to pass.

More accurately, when my desired outcomes do not come to pass – immediately.

Patience may be a virtue, but it’s not naturally one of mine.

But I’ve been learning, over the last few years, to trust the process. To do what I can and then wait. Wait for the pieces to fall into place or for better pieces to reveal themselves.

I’m learning that some things take time to germinate.

They need to ferment like a good wine.

The yeast takes time to rise the bread before it can be baked.

Learning to walk and talk and drive a car takes practice.


Where do you get stuck? How do you push through?
