“When it comes to success the choice is simple, You can either stand up and be counted or lie down and be counted out!.
~Maggie L. Walker~
Which do you chose? The answer will come down to whether or not you decide to exhibit a very special trait that is imperative for those who wish to live the good life. What trait is that? Perseverance.
No matter who you are or what you are trying to do, different things in life are going to knock you down. People who live mediocre lives take this as a sign that maybe they should stay down. They don’t want to take anymore pain, punishment, rejection or failure. So they decide to coast as much as they can which all but knocks them out of the possibility of living a truly successful life.
What about those that do persevere? Like everyone else they get knocked down. Funny thing is they get knocked down even more than those who chose not to. The greatness in them is the fact that no matter how many knock downs they receive, they always find a way back to their feet. They are always moving toward their goals and desires and therefore they always accomplish far more than those that left life simply knock them out.
I’m sure everyone reading this is going through some difficulty. And with that difficulty you have another opportunity to to show just what you are made of. Stand up and be counted!
