New is not always better

…continued from here

“We do not want you to become lazy, but to imitate those who through faith and patience inherit what has been promised.”
~ Hebrews 6:12

In the verse above, St. Paul notes that faith alone won’t work. Add patience to the mix.

Failures stop too soon. They change tactics and techniques too soon. They do not give their efforts enough time to work.

Do not quitYour efforts are living things; time is the air they breathe. They need time to grow and to produce fruits. Give your plans and strategies enough time to succeed. Work on them daily. Be diligent in the implementation. Make adjustments here and there if you have to; but don’t abandon them.

Repetition is the most powerful law of success. People neglect it because of monotony and boredom. Yet, success is often hidden in the monotonous and boring, which is why only few find it. Develop a passion for the routine and common place.

New is not always better. In fact, new is rarely better. Those who discover the fun in the boring, see a secret passage to success. When everyone gets bored with the routine and move on, the persistence and tenacious hang in and hit gold. What people call new often is nothing but the old in an even older garment.

Remember, God honors faith. Step out in faith again, and work your plans. Most times, you do not need to change what you are doing. You just need to do it again, and again, and again. God will bless them.
