There was a Persistent Dog named Misty. She was a family pet in a normal middle-income household. The house was a small cottage. So, home to Misty was the backyard, which was rather little also.
Misty’s world focused on the 4 corners of this little yard, which was also utilized as the laundry drying and staging area. Strange as it might appear, Misty had a preferred location in this yard where she slept and felt quite comfortable. The location was under the sink, where the majority of the laundry work was being done.
Misty shared the area with the laundry lady. The laundry lady saved all sorts of soapboxes, pails, basins, and even tools under that sink, which developed or created blockages for the dog. However, still, Misty was seen crawling under the preferred location and making herself quite comfy in the middle of these items. Sometimes, the laundry lady would place items in Misty’s way so she would have a hard time moving these items aside simply to be able to squeeze in. Misty could barely move; however, she still liked the area a lot.
All sorts of things have been done to dissuade the pet dog from sleeping under the sink; still, the pet constantly managed to squeeze itself in. When Misty found it tough to fit into the area, she would sit for a while taking a look at that preferred area as if considering and thinking about a method to get herself into it. And in each of her efforts, she prospered.
Aren’t you surprised at such persistence? To know that Misty is a dog makes it more incredible!
If a canine has such a level of persistence, why can’t we human beings have the exact same? If we face barriers, we quickly wave the white flag of surrender. This reveals our absence of persistence, decision, and persistence in pursuing our objectives, unlike this Persistent Dog Named Misty…
It takes persistence to progress and to advance. When we quit, we lose whatever we strove for: time, effort, cash, and the chance to be successful in life.
We will never ever understand how close we are to success if we give up someplace in-between. It is a decision between success and failure. Giving up is accepting failure. Persistence to continue, in spite of barriers, is the method for success.
We cant accept failures, why not? Our state of mind should be configured to view failures as short-lived. When we stop trying, it is time to evaluate and start learning from our errors. Then, we need to discover or find another method/way, and still continue till we reach the door of success, never ever-fluctuating to challenges that might impede us.
We need to open our minds and anticipate circumstances that we will be faced with, barriers that would result in deciding whether to continue or not. The very best method or way is to take a look at the alternatives, and options offered to us. From there, we can move on and continue our journey towards the accomplishment of our objectives.
Success is never simple or easy, and failure becomes or is a big part of it. The unfortunate part is that the majority of us are hindered by the simple idea of failure, and this immobilizes us from taking or finding the best strategy/way.
Lots of people quickly quit and are pleased with their own weak sense of achievement. They merely kick back and view others who delight in life while they take part in self-pity, being sorry that they quit prematurely.
The option or choices are ours to make, so make it count… Life is too darn short to NOT take that leap of faith…
