Turn your pain into power!
Endurance is one of the most difficult disciplines, but it is to the one who endures that the final victory comes. There are no shortcuts to endurance. You have to train yourself to make peace with the long route every day and do it and love where it's taking you. First steps are always the hardest but until they are taken the notion of progress remains only a notion and not an achievement. Limitations can only be true as long as we believe in them. Believe in yourself instead. Amazing things will happen. Endurance is not just the ability to bear a hard thing, but to turn it into glory.
I have endured, I have been hurt. I have known hardship. I have lost myself, but here I still stand, moving forward, growing stronger each day. I will never forget the harsh lessons life taught me. They made me stronger. They birthed in me the spirit to not quit and keep going. I realized I am already in pain. I’m already hurt. Why not I get some reward from it? Why not I leverage on the positive that’s hidden in the negative? The process was not always comfortable but it transformed me into a better version of myself.
I learned from the example of my mother that the manner in which one endures what must be endured is more important than the thing that must be endured. Excellence is not a singular act, but a habit. You are what you repeatedly do. Endurance is the crowning quality, and patience acts as the backbone that helps sustain it. Moreover, passion builds consistency and all these traits are of great hearts who know sacrifice comes before success.
