The power to hold on in spite of everything, to endure, this is the quality of a winner. Your greatest glory is not in never failing, but in rising every time you fail.
It's your constant and determined effort that will eventually break down all resistance and sweep away all the barriers before you.
Persistence means taking pains to overcome every obstacle, to do all that's necessary to reach your goal. All great achievements require time. Endurance is the crowning quality of success.
The term "I can do this" has come in handy on many occasion for me and it has served me well. When I found out I had gout... the doctor told me this is what you have to do! i said "I can do this" When he said you have arthritis and this is what you have to do I said "I can do this"... Kidney problems, Diabetes, hurting knees,... what ever the hurdle I was told what I could do, I researched how to do it and I kept repeating to myself "I can do this"
Isn't it amazing what 4 little words and persistence, determination and Help from God and my friends at Sparkpeople can do?
It's amazing... all I have to do is hang in there, do what's right, stay accountable, research... and continue to repeat all the steps until I win!
small steps, information, staying on track, finding out what has to be done and do it! I'm not ready to give up anything! I'll fight to the end if that's what it takes but I will be healthy again!
You see... I haven't failed, I just tried something different and found out that it didn't work for me... on to something new!
It's try try try again and finding out what works and what doesn't!
Never give up... never say you're through... If it was worth starting it is worth finishing...
I'm losing all of the 130 pounds that I set out to lose... I will beat this diabetes, I will continue to find ways to help my arthritis... and I have conquered the problems with my kidneys... so you see "I CAN DO IT"
Nothing will get in the way of my quality of life with my Wife and Family...
Those 4 words work for everyone... "I Can Do This" Believe it in your heart! Live it every day and you will be surprised at what you can accomplish!
I Can Do This... You Can Too! Ray
