Determination requires discipline and discipline requires consistency. Do the best you can and do your best to do it for the right reasons.
We can be a leaf in a stream and get taken wherever the water flows. We can also be a rock in the stream. But it’s better to be the stream.
The stream will flow where it needs to flow. It will go around the rocks or over the rocks to get there.
Consistency has power that a stale rock doesn’t. A rock can only resist. But water can overcome resistance.
A rock, that’s too heavy, cannot move. Though strong, it can only experience decay. Water sustains life. It is refreshing. It flows. It can carry. It can be useful. It can transform. If it is stored for too long, it will evaporate or seep into the soil and nourish the earth. When it is too cold, it can be hard enough to destroy the Titanic. If you boil it enough it will disinfect and get rid of the germs.
Be like water. Strength is not only what we can see or do. It is also what we can become!
