Perseverance Is Really Another Word For Self-Reliance

Aug 17, 2007
When a man is in the right path, he must persevere. I speak of this because there are some persons who are born tired; naturally lazy and possessing no self-reliance and no perseverance.

But they can cultivate these qualities, as Davy Crockett said:
"This thing remember, when I am dead: Be sure you are right, then go ahead."

It is this go-ahead addiction, this determination not to let the horrors or the blues take possession of you, so as to make you relax your energies in the struggle for independence, which you must cultivate.
How many have almost reached the goal of their ambition, but, losing faith in themselves, have relaxed their energies, and the golden prize has been lost forever.

It is, no doubt, often true, as Shakespeare says:
"There is a tide in the affairs of men, Which, taken at the flood, leads on to fortune."

If you hesitate, some bolder hand will stretch out before you and get the prize.

Remember the proverb of Solomon:
"He becometh poor that dealeth with a slack hand; but the hand of the diligent maketh rich."

Perseverance is sometimes but another word for self-reliance. Many persons naturally look on the dark side of life, and borrow trouble. They are born so. Then they ask for advice, and they will be governed by one wind and blown by another, and cannot rely upon themselves. Until you can get so that you can rely upon yourself, you need not expect to succeed.

Men who have met with pecuniary reverses, and absolutely committed suicide, because they thought they could never overcome their misfortune. But I have known others who have met more serious financial difficulties, and have bridged them over by simple perseverance, aided by a firm belief that they were doing justly, and that Providence would "overcome evil with good."

You will see this illustrated in any sphere of life.

The only way to achieve equanimity, balance or equilibrium even after you become the wealthiest individual is to have your sense of realizing the trueessence of life.

Nothing in life is constant. Life is ever changing and things that seem to have existence today may cease to exist tomorrow and this is a fact that you and everyone else must learn to accept.

It is my sincere belief that every person has the potential to succeed in life. As long as you believe it as well then you're already halfway there.

Also, do keep in mind:
"Wealth is more than just money."
