I have always believed that “Confidence is nothing but ‘respect earned in one’s own eyes by fulfilling promises made to oneself’”
Over the years, I have seen best of the people literally wasting themselves because they were not loyal to the choices they made. And it is equally true for studies, work or relationships. Yes! It is important to ‘stay the course’ even with reluctance or disinterest.
Well! As humans, we may have ‘infinite potential’ but the problem is that we have ‘finite time’. And that makes the strongest case for ‘discipline’. And it is natural to get distracted or disillusioned, so even if you are finding it hard to ‘stay the course’, try to ‘stay around it’ or bring it to a ‘logical end’. Don’t just jump off the ship.
As I put it “Sprint… run… walk…or crawl, make sure that direction remains the same”.
Such subtle ‘messages to oneself’ create ‘personality’ inside ‘person’ …one brick at a time.
