I think of the struggles many people go through, I’m reminded of a quote by Albert E. N. Gray:
“The successful person has the habit of doing things failures don’t like to do.They don’t like doing them either necessarily.But their disliking is subordinated to the strength of their purpose.”
If you are someone who has to make important changes in your life, you may want to ponder on this idea. What are the things you know you have to do but are avoiding? If you were to discipline yourself and create a plan for doing those things, would you find positive, even breakthrough rewards?
Case & Point, One soon take notice when trying to avoid doing something regarding progress, eventually see that a much higher price tag an even higher penalty margin by avoidance. For example, when you neglect health by not eating right, exercising, or getting enough sleep because you may think it’s hard to stick to a disciplined regiment, you find Yourself feeling sluggish and not doing quality work of excellence. When finally subordinate your favorite dislikes to the strength of your purpose, things turn around.
Identify something you are avoiding and make a promise that you will do it today not tomorrow. Make a heart felt promise and keep it not taking the easy route out leading to failure. Subordinate the things you dislike doing to your greater purpose accomplishing new goals. The more you do this, the more strength you will build up—and the more success you will find day after day.
