This month’s book was The Cause Within You by Matthew Barnett and in the chapter entitled, “The Right Time to Quit” he writes,
One of the most important insights to remember about perseverance is that the pressure to quit often happens just before a major breakthrough occurs.
This was refreshing.
Though I have written on the subject of perseverance before, the idea of a “major breakthrough” following the pressure to quit was encouraging. It put the pressure to quit in perspective.
Though money may be low.
Though resources may be waning.
Though help may be nowhere in sight.
Though you can’t imagine going another day.
Though you can’t see the light at the end of the tunnel.
Though you can’t fathom how it is going to all work out in the end.
Your breakthrough is closer than you think.
