“Most of the important things in the world have been accomplished by people who kept on trying when there seemed to be no hope at all.” Dale Carnegie – author
The powerful quote above illustrates the power behind persistence backed by unwavering faith. Lets analyze the statement in detail:
“The most important things in the world”: Think of the implications for your life. If the monumental events of human history have been accomplished when no hope was in sight then surely many events of our own personal lives pale in comparison. Conversely, this statement implies that by applying persistence we can overcome even the most catastrophic turn of events.
“accomplished by people” : “People,” whether collectively standing together with a purpose or persisting on alone have the same abilities to overcome insurmountable odds as all other people. Impossible only exists in the mind.
“kept on trying”: This does not imply using the same tactics and strategies, but rather never stopping looking for methods to accomplish your goal.
“no hope at all”: Behind all persistence must be an unwavering faith that succeeds hope. Hope and wishes will only get you so far. The power of persistence backed with Faith will allow nothing to stand in your way. The moment unwavering faith is applied to a situation the outcome has been decided.
The only person that is defeated is the one who believes himself to be defeated. All defeat is temporary when persistence is applied. Not blind persistence like a bee running into a window, but a persistence that says no matter what I will find a way! That is where the great mixing pot of faith and persistence blend together to create the necessary opportunity and perfect solution.
