Stay on the path
If you want your actions to have power, repeat them often. Your solidly-established habits have much more influence than your occasional whims.
There are limits to what you can do in a single instant. Yet when you focus your actions over many days, months or years, you can achieve truly amazing things.
It’s great to have useful skills, valuable resources, and powerful friends. Yet without persistence, even the best advantages won’t get you anywhere.
With persistent actions, however, you can start from where you are and get yourself to wherever you wish to be. When you put real, focused effort into your dreams, again and again, those dreams cannot help but become real.
Which path you choose is important. What’s just as important is choosing to stay on that path, every moment, every day, until the destination is reached.
Give your life the power of persistence. And delight in the immense satisfaction of steadily working your way to your own unique fulfillment.
