“The man who forms the habit of beginning without finishing has simply formed the habit of failure”
The above quote is from the book “Streams in the Desert” by L.B. Cowman. It’s one of the books I read on daily basis as part of the habit of prayer I’ve been trying to form thess past few weeks.
I’ve been guilty of starting a lot of things that I have not finished or followed through. I’m sad about it because some of them could have turned into something great.
I want to change that. I’ve realized that one of the most important things a person should develop is perseverance. We should always push forward and not give up on things that are worthwhile.
Life is about choices. We’re put in situations and given things but it’s up to us to choose what we do with it. I’ve said this before during the several times I’ve been asked to do motivational talks. Life is like poker. It’s not always the best hand that wins. It’s who plays their cards right that often end up winning.
I was born with a rare genetic disease that has robbed me of a lot of physical abilities. I was fortunate enough to have been brought up with a positive disposition. I could use my sickness as a stumbling block or a stepping-stone to something great.
Some people tend to dwell on the negative things of a situation. In my case some people in my situation would tend to think about not being able to walk, or do things on their own. I admit I think about those things. I don’t dwell on them though. So I can’t walk or do most things on my own. Tough. No matter how much I cry over it though it won’t change anything.
