Persevere and Stay the Course 

Sometimes it’s difficult to persevere and stay the course. It’s easy to get frustrated and lose faith. There is a beautiful little poem by Edgar A Guest called Don’t Quit that is the perfect little reminder.

Don’t Quit by Edgar A Guest

When things go wrong, as they sometimes will, when the road you’re trudging seems all uphill, when the funds are low and the debts are high, and you want to smile but you have to sigh, when care is pressing you down a bit – rest if you must, but don’t you quit.

Life is queer with its twists and turns as everyone of us sometimes learns. And many a fellow turns about when he might have won had he stuck it out. Don’t give up though the pace seems slow – you may succeed with another blow.

Often the goal is nearer than it seems To a faint and faltering man; Often the struggler has given up when he might have captured the victor’s cup; and he learned too late when the night came down, how close he was to the golden crown.

Success is failure turned inside out – the silver tint of the clouds of doubt, and when you never can tell how close you are, it may be near when it seems afar; so stick to the fight when you’re hardest hit – it’s when things seem worst, you must not quit.

Blessism for Your Ability to Persevere & Stay the Course

I bless my ability to persevere and stay the course and my capacity to create, to overcome, to endure, to transform, to love, and to be greater than my suffering.

My ability to stay on track, is a powerful force in my life.

I always have the choice to look back at difficult times and realize they were catalysts for change.

I bless any challenges, difficulties or struggles I may be going through.

I bless these challenges and my ability to use them as a catalyst for growth.

I bless the life lessons I have learned along the way.

I understand that even though the bad stuff is happening, it can also teach me something, push me to grow, and encourage me to change.

I ask to be made aware of any and all life lessons I need to be aware of to help me evolve and grow.

Today may I receive what I need. I understand I am completely deserving of a happy, healthy, fulfilling life.

Thank you for the beautiful journey of love and compassion I have been through.
