“Clear and accurate adherence to the truth is a habit I must continue to practice, after all, if I wish to retain my excellence. Because you don’t get it once, and keep it for good.”Caelan Huntress — (link to his blog where I read this, here.)
How we decide to approach a thing, no matter how small or insignificant it feels, will contribute to our personal development, and it will refine our autonomic behaviors and responses to other, similar stimuli. If “it” is a difficult task, or some mundane work that we’d rather not do, but we certainly know that “it” will lead to a desirable outcome, we ought to train ourselves to appreciate and thrive, wholesomely, in that environment. If we do not, we risk never being able to accomplish anything meaningful.
After all, nothing worthwhile has ever come without a purposeful initiative, and hours of thought and effort, that will be less exciting than what the desired outcome is.
Will we approach things with vigor, energy, gratitude and excellence?
If so, we’ll train ourselves to consistently approach things in this way.
Will we approach things with frustration, sloth, anger, and discontent?
If so, we’ll train ourselves to consistently approach things in this way, also.
