Practice Persistence - Deepstash

Practice Persistence

Remember and remind yourself of a phrase by Epictetus: “presist and resist”. Persist in your efforts. Resist giving in to distraction, discouragement, or disorder.

Doing new thing invariably means obstacles. A new path is, by definition, uncleared. Only in struggling with the impediments that made other quit can we find ourselves on untrodden territory only by persisting and resisting can we learn what others were too impatient to be taught. It’s okay to be discouraged. It’s not okay to quit.
