“Adhere to your purpose and you will soon feel as well as you ever did. On the contrary, if you falter, and give up, you will lose the power of keeping any resolution, and will regret it all your life.”
There are two critical and difficulty activities in which we must engage if we are to reach our potential:
First, we must take the time to reflect on our purpose. This requires a thorough examination on what is truly important to us in order to determine a purpose worthy of sacrifice, hard work, persistence and courage. For these will be required to stay focused and committed through challenges and changing circumstances.
Second, we must regularly recommit to our purpose through self-inspection and being willing to listen to new ideas and engage in an evolving world. Your purpose can stay true, but the means to achieving it and the skills to do so will likely need to change and evolve over time. Don’t be so dogmatic that you lose the ability to grow and evolve yourself.
Don’t give up on your purpose, but do evolve in your approach to achieving it. You’ll be glad you did!
