Without fail, PTG has another great article. This time it is on perseverance.
Webster's Description: Perseverance: act of perservering. Persevere: continue doing in spite of obstacles.
The article talks about what we will run into in our life times. Some experience hardships much more than others. No two of us will have an identical life. Yet some of us will experience related problems.
An idea of some of the walls we will meet up with:
"The path ahead of you is strewn with obstacles. People will oppose you. There will be financial setbacks, time pressures, illnesses and misfortunes. Some of the biggest obstacles will be inside of you: self-doubt, insecurity, procrastination, and worry. You must give yourself permission to succeed. " PTG 12/07/08 article.
What do we do when illnesses hit, our economical future becomes questionable, and finances are stretched to almost beyond their means, not to mention the personal struggles?
We persevere, which means we keep going. Never give up. Giving up opens ourselves to allowing the enemy in. The enemy will only compound the problems, often times without us seeing it happen until it is too late. It is important to believe, stay positive, and keep pressing foward. After all, we have been provided for all this time, why should it all of a sudden be taken away from us? It won't be.
So remind yourself of this word when you meet up with another struggle in live; "Persevere!" Keep the faith. I am living proof that life becomes much better when we don't cave to all the pressures. I've been on both sides. The side where we cave, become depressed, give up; and then on the side of believing and having faith. Life has been so much better, even through the hard times!
Blessings to you all!
