Persistence Pays - One Foot in Front of The Other

Persistence Pays - One Foot in Front of The Other

With a mindset of  PERSISTENCE you will...
  • Take more consistent action
  • Gain a sense of pride and accomplishment
  • Feel less burdened and lighter as a result
  • Experience a ripple effect of motivation and empowerment
  • Inspire yourself and others
  • Be aware of growth and change - in actions and thoughts
  • See tangible, measurable results

I recently finished reading the book, WILD - From Lost to Found on the Pacific Crest Trail by Cheryl Strayed. The book recounts the author's experiences leading up to and while hiking the Pacific Crest Trail. This hiking trail extends from the California/Mexico border to the Washington/Canada border and traverses several mountain ranges. The author's story is a raw, real, vulnerable and sometimes heartbreaking journey that embodies the mindset of PERSISTENCE. Despite many challenges, setbacks and oversights she puts one foot in front of the other and plods on. Ultimately, the trek changed her.

When we choose to persist, we are always rewarded. The rewards may not come in the way we thought or hoped they would, but the impact is no less great. The simple act of putting one foot in front of the other is bold and powerful - it is inspiring and inspired.
