You don’t build endurance on the path of least resistance. (Christine Caine, motivational speaker and author)
When things get tough on the road to achievement, it’s easy to slow down or stop. No one enjoys hardship and work that becomes drudgery. As football coach Vince Lombardi once said, “When the going gets tough, the tough get going.” That sounds so easy, but it really requires perseverance, which may be developed only by overcoming resistance.
Let perseverance finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything. (James 1:4)
