Not All Those Who Wander Are Lost; Perseverance Is the Key to Success in Life...
Consider an ant that is pushing a pebble up a hill. It is a wearisome struggle, for the ant cannot see what lies in front of him or how much further it has to push to arrive on top. The ant loses his balance and falls for an indescribable amount of time.
Every time the ant decides to push the pebble up the hill, he doesn’t have the faintest idea of how high the climb is or how hard it is going to be, but he does this nonetheless. The ant is sometimes tempted to let go of the pebble and forsake this entire pursuit. But he never gives in to this temptation, for the ant always thinks and asks this question: What if I am merely seconds away from reaching the top and achieving my goal?
You already know where I am going with this. In our lifetime, we walk many a path to achieve things that are of importance and meaning to us. In those journeys, there have always been moments of temptation to let go of the struggle in search of a pitiful convenience that might not even be what we want. Imagine the regret you would feel if someone were to tell you that you were merely a step away from achieving what you wanted, but just didn’t know it at that moment and decided to give in to that horrid temptation.
Facing the obstacles and the challenges that life throws at us every day is hard. No one should deny that. No one is ever in a position to deny that. And we shouldn’t lie to ourselves about what we have to face in order to succeed. Walking down this road is difficult, and it can be overwhelming.
What we need to understand is that the only obstacle between where we are now and where we want to be is the perseverance that is needed to stay on the path and wake up every day to face the challenges that life has prepared for us. To never give up, and never give in.
Sometimes, you have been in a path for so long that you don’t even remember why you started in the first place. That should not strip you of your hopes and dreams. Always remember to have patience and perseverance. The future is in the hands of those that live with the light of faith and hope. As a wise man once said,
All that is gold does not glitter,
Not all those who wander are lost;
The old that is strong does not wither,
Deep roots are not reached by the frost.
