Keep going. Just keep on going even when you can clearly see roadblocks ahead of you. Persistence is the name of the game. If you keep on keeping on, you will get there. One way or another. Just ask that drop of water that kept pounding the rock until the rock eventually disappeared. You may just be a drop of water, uncertain how you will get through that rock before you. Just keep pounding.
Labor pains are like a rock that stands in the way of a prospective mama. But she keeps pushing. And pushing. And pushing. Her persistence pays off when a baby bursts through and bursts into a cry of life.
Persistence entails pushing and pushing until you birth your baby. Until you get your breakthrough. Until you realize your dream. Persistence doesn’t give up or give in. It keeps pushing until birth occurs.
Persistence isn’t about banging your head on the wall until you drop down. Instead of using your head as a tool of pounding that wall, use your head to find tools or ways of overcoming that wall. Persistence finds a hammer and pounds that wall until it comes down. Persistence scales that wall and delivers you to the other side. Persistence turns that wall into a stepping stone to higher ground.
Persistence keeps placing one foot in front of the other until it arrives at its destination.
