Sometimes Things Have to Be Moved to Make Way For The New
Perhaps we need to make changes and yet we are not sure what needs to be done. Shall we make drastic decisions and remove everything and start over, or just make small changes? There may be times when we question if we are actually doing what we desire to or are called to do. Are we headed in the right direction?
There is a saying, “Keep doing what you are doing and you are going to get what you got!” As we ask ourselves questions, are we content with what is happening in our lives, in our community, our country, our world? If we are not content, is there something we can do to make a positive difference? If there is, what will it take? Whatever we decide we want to change, we need to included the power of persistence.
Nothing in this World can take the place of persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence an determination are omnipotent. The slogan “press on” has solved and always will solve the problems of the human race. Calvin Coolidge
It is true we need persistence to fulfill that which we desire to accomplish. As an author one has to begin and finish a book, as an artist one takes an empty canvas and creates a beautiful painting, a musician may write a song and then play music to accompany it. Each endeavor starts with an idea, a beginning and a desired end to be accomplished. This can only be done with persistence.
What area do we desire to change or influence, and are willing to commit to the time and energy to see it through? Counting the cost, with the determination and persistence, shall we embrace a new vision? Can we press forward working toward our goals with the desired result in mind? Let us encourage each other to be persistent and celebrate our successes, large and small, let’s celebrate one and all.
