I’ve learned that passion provides the spark, but without perseverance, you can never get to where you want to go.
It’s your self-induced resilience and tenacity and belief that keeps you going when the walls are crumbling and the sky begins to fall.
It’s an unbreakable commitment to a mission that’s greater than you, a vision that’s larger than you, and a purpose that has nothing to do with you… that’s what enables you to inch forward.
And I really do believe that’s the biggest lesson. Just to keep going. Even when it’s hard or dark or painful. Even when your toes are tired and your compass is broken.
