Pilates Quotes: Patience and Persistence

There is power in learning to harness Patience and Persistence to help you stay focused to achieve your goals.

In our point and click world we are a society that has developed a belief in instant gratification.  We want things NOW!  Waiting any length of time for anything seems like an unreasonable bother.

But it takes time to make things happen…  Nine months to patiently wait for your baby to develop in the womb, the commitment (and persistence) to get out and do your weekly runs to get the body in shape to complete a marathon, making good food choices and paying attention portion control to maintain, or manage a weight loss program…  You don’t make good food choices for one meal and miraculously lose twenty pounds!  Patience and persistence are your allies to achieve success.

Acknowledge that it might take a little time and effort to reach your goals.  Practice patience and persistence along with right action and you will ultimately achieve success with every worthwhile endeavor.
