“Diamonds are nothing more than chunks of coal that stuck to their jobs.”
~ Malcom Stevenson Forbes
Persistence pays off. Yes, it can feel tedious at times – plodding along in pursuit of health, happiness or success – especially when results are slow to materialize.
Have you set your goals well? Are you working diligently toward them? Do you believe you are deserving of the end result? If you answered yes to all of those questions then think of yourself as a diamond in the rough working your way out of the coal bed.
Dig in. It’s either that or sit back and do nothing. Sure you can argue that nothing is materializing from all your hard work anyways “So why bother?” but right action will produce right results even if you don’t see it coming.
Sitting back will produce nothing but a sore butt. Stick to your job. Do the work you know you have to do. The diamonds will come.
