MKE 2019, Week 10

I will persist until I succeed.
In the Orient young bulls are tested for the fight arena in a certain manner. Each is brought to the ring and allowed to attack a picador who pricks them with a lance. The bravery of each bull is then rated with care according to the number of times he demonstrates his willingness to charge in spite of the sting of the blade. Henceforth will I recognize that each day I am tested by life in like manner. If I persist, if I continue to try, if I continue to charge forward, I will succeed.
I will persist until I succeed.

Og Mandino, ‘The Greatest Salesman of the World’, Scroll III

What does ‘persist’ mean to You?

To me, it’s the act of applied faith in a purpose that is proven by continuous action towards the object of our desired purpose.
If we just continue performing the actions and developing the habits leading towards our purpose, without any definite proof that it will be obtained, we demonstrate persistence and faith.
