With so much going on in everyone's life, I caught this quote and wanted to share some thoughts as to how this can help us all through the busyness. The patience part I've been hearing a lot about lately, whether it be in sports, in relationships, waiting for news about something important, etc. Doesn't really matter the event, having patience (calmness, a positive attitude, a clear head, etc.) sure does help. I have been focusing on this so many times in the last few years and it seems to help me get through things a lot better.
Persistence is also something that I've been looking at a lot more, especially since I didn't have it in a few areas growing up. Oh there are plenty of things that I have stuck with and not quit on, but there seems to be plenty that I have not been persistent with. Looking back with regrets is something that quite frankly, I'm not only a little ticked off about, but I'm also trying to learn from those things and make things better for me right now.
The there is the last "P" from Mr. Hill. Perspiration! Now let me tell you and my family will back me up on this, I don't have any problems with perspiration. But being sweaty most of the time really is not what Napoleon Hill was connecting this to. This is where the hard work comes into play. The effort, the action, the determination to move forward by doing things necessary to attain the goal you are going after. This too has been a struggle for me in some areas. When I focus on this statement and I look back, I say to myself, John... you have so many examples to refer back to so you can make some great changes in your life. So instead of looking at the negative side of things I haven't done too well - I'm looking at these with optimism and hope that I can use those instances to move forward.
This quote that I found late on Sunday also fits into what our families are going through presently. My brother-in-law is in the hospital having a very serious procedure done to save his life. We are still waiting to see how he comes out of this. Then last night we found out that one of my 3 cousins died suddenly. So needless to say to get through this trying time along with moving forward in life - all 3 of the "P's" above need to be focused on for sure. Where can you use them in your life right now? Always looking to learn from others - leave some comments to help yourself and others.
