PERSISTENCE

L`audace, L`audace, L‘audace: – Audacity, Audacity, Audacity

That was the motto of Frederick the great of Prussia. His strategy was simple. Whenever he met the enemy he attacked. If he had 5000 and the enemy 10,000, he still attacked.

Persistence of purpose is one of the greatest assets a person of character should possess. Men of dogged persistence who walked the face of the earth, often didn’t miss success. The biblical account of Jacob: he wrestled the angel and compelled him to stay or bless him. His words, “I will NEVER let you go…” for him it was blessing or nothing.

One mark of courage is the ability to stay the course, no matter what hard circumstance one is faced with. Paul in the scripture was brave even in difficult times.

Don’t stop now, you’re almost there.
