Nature shows us that much of life in the natural world would not exist without persistence. All around us are examples of plants growing in places where we thing it is impossible for them to grow. Baby animals must persist to stand/crawl/move immediately after being born to get that first nourishment that pushes them forward.
Nature's biggest lesson to us is "never give up". We have been in a time of self indulgence in the West. We let others do our work for us. We expect everything and want to give nothing. We are headed for a time of levelling where we must persist to get what we need.
Today, make a plan to persist on something that seems to be over-whelming. What is the goal? What is the action plan? What is the reward?
