October 7th - patience and perseverance
Sometimes I think my life would make a great TV movie. It even has the part where they say, Stand by. We are experiencing temporary difficulties.
It's easy to get frustrated and impatient while working hard to achieve dreams that still seem far away. When you get that inkling to give up, remember this old saying.. Winners never quit and quitters never win!
Patience means steadfastness. Someone who is patient knows how to endure. They're stable no matter what happens. Many times we rob ourselves of the answer because we throw in the towel right before our answer comes. We lose all the ground we ever gained by quitting too soon. Stay patient. Stay steadfast. Endure until the answer comes. Remember this…you are never a failure until you quit.
Half the annoyances of life will disappear if one is only patient under them. Almost all the other half will go the same way if one does not worry over them.
Frank A. De Puy
The problem is that we want everything handed to us on a silver platter. We always want the easy way out. But we need to stay in there when the going gets rough. Don't quit. They say you never missed what you have, until you no longer have it. It’s the same way patience, when you’ve had to use it, you know what perseverance is.
When the going gets tough, those who are just mouthing things won't last. Those kind of people are gone when things begin to heat up. Those with commitment will stick. Stick to it is another good phrase for patience or endurance
Patience and perseverance have a magical effect before which difficulties disappear and obstacles vanish.
