“Perseverance is the hard work you do after you get tired of doing the hard work you already did.”
– Newt Gingrich quotes
When you work hard and do your best you will feel good. Feeling good leads to gratitude. Think back to the last time you worked hard and completed a task. Weren’t you beaming and feeling good? Weren’t you grateful that you stuck to it?
You may not know this, but I have a bunch of initials after my name for knowing stuff about insurance (CPCU, ALSI, blah, blah, blah). I have taken at least 20 exams to obtain the various designations I have. I think it is safe to say that EVERY test I prepared for I was ready to throw in the towel and stop studying. And each time I thought, “You have come this far. What is another 6 hours of studying? Stick with it!”
Each time I passed an exam I was grateful that I stuck through it.
What will you stick with? What do you want to accomplish that is so close,
yet so far? Be grateful for being so close and now push through it and so amazing things!
