Be Persistent

The NAWLS Small Bite for March 30th is

Be persistent. 

Just possessing a skill will not get the job done; you must use your skill over and over again to reach your goal. 
Think of the tortoise and hare in Aesop's Fables. The hare was skillful, but not persistent. He stopped and took a nap during the race! But, the tortoise was persistent. He just kept running and running. Slowly and imperfectly, but persistently. Like that brave tortoise, persistent people are rewarded with success. More talented people have fallen short because they did not have the fortitude to go the distance. 

Action for the day: 
Are you persistent? In your journal, explore how it feels, or would feel, to be persistent and what that might mean for your WLS success.
