Keep Going-The Art of Perseverance
The following is from the Joseph M Marshall, III's book, "Keep Going: The Art of Perseverance," page 34:
"Though you fall many times, you rise again and again, stronger and more balanced each time. You are determined so failures do not deter you, and successes only strength you. You are encouraged to keep trying. But though life beckons it is not a sign that it will always look on you in favor. It beckons because you must make your journey, and you soon learn that in that journey there is also disappointment, failure, sorrow, frustration, weariness, and doubt. Just as you were carried along by your determination, you find yourself dragged down by failure. Then you learn that inside that inside you, along with the will to win is a willingness to lose, to stop when the hill seems too steep, when the road becomes too narrow and rough. That willingness will speak to you of self pity, and sometimes it will plead, and sometimes rant. But always it tries to make you stop."
What does this tell us about life?
