In each small moment
How do you achieve big results from modest efforts? You persevere in those modest efforts.
Perseverance is really nothing more than acting each time you have the opportunity to act. Perseverance is continuing to do what you've already been doing, and anyone can do that.
Perseverance will bring great, magnificent results. Yet perseverance gets its power from the small, ordinary moments.
Though you may not be able to do a whole lot in just one small moment, there is always something vitally important that you can do. You can keep going.
Through every excuse, every setback, each distraction and each mistake, you can persevere. You will get where you choose to go by staying the course at every opportunity.
On the other side of perseverance is whatever you dare to imagine and intend. In each small moment use the time to persevere, and harvest the great bounty of your own success.
