Separating the wheat from the chaff

To achieve anything in life; a dream, a successful marriage, career, whatever that may be for you. There will be moments where you are tested beyond the limits of what you thought you could handle.

The most simple example of this would be taken from the local gym. When a new member begins to train, they may find their capacity in the first few weeks will be significantly less, to someone who has been following a work out programme for the last six months. The new member would typically start to work with smaller weights, and run for shorter periods of time than the more experienced member.

Of course, with;

  • persistence
  • consistency
  • time

Anyone can improve their stamina, providing they hold on to those three key ingredients and push through the pain of exhausted muscles, fatigue and all the other temporary symptoms our bodies produce in reaction to the resistance.

What we must understand is that the resistance is needed to achieve the desired result. In the same way, perseverance, patience and counting the cost is required of us, when we embark on business, marriage and almost any area of life.

Counting the cost, preparing the ground work, and gathering the research is not a season to be rushed, for if we are prepared for all eventualities at the start. We will be ready, and increase our chances of survival when the stormy weather hits unannounced up ahead.
