It’s been said that You Learn Perseverance by Persevering. You are becoming mentally tougher right now. The pain and the difficulties and the change today are making you stronger for dealing with the uncertainties of tomorrow.
We’re all having to be more flexible. We are all facing less consistency, less predictability. Work processes are different. Customers are different. Expectations of us are different. Communications with teammates are different. And for many, our personal lives and those of our loved ones are very different.
In the future, when we look back on today, we may remember all the difficulties. We might not remember all the positives, but we will be stronger in the future. We will be better equipped to deal with the difficulties that come next. And though work…and life will be difficult again, we will be more prepared – mentally, physically, spiritually – to get through those tomorrows because we got through these todays.
You are building wisdom, strengthening your character, and having experiences that will guide your future decision-making and your direction. Maybe there are a lot of small defeats today, and maybe some big defeats today, but they can be stepping stones to big joys and victories tomorrow.
So, grind it out today, this hour, this minute. Persevering through today’s challenges is a victory in itself. Tomorrow will be there tomorrow; no use worrying about it today.
Persevere through this day.
