"Perseverance"

Steve Hoffacker's Motivational Monday Photographs and Inspiration

 

It may look like those rocks can withstand the mighty ocean waves, but over time, those rocks will disappear due to the persistent and prolonged pounding of the surf against them. The waves are powerful - stronger than the ability of the rocks to resist their force. What can we prevail against simply by not giving up and just keeping at it over time?

Hi Steve, Pictures of the ocean are so magnificient, aren't they?  And you're right, with the persistence of the tide those rocks will wear away.

Steve,

The tide goes in and goes out over and over. I agree, that is perseverance.

Steve.. With anything (for the most part) perseverance is the answer to getting ahead or getting things you want... you just need patients.  Thank you for sharing.
