When does the tide change? When does the shift happen? When are you at the edge of glory? Ok that is a bit dramatic, I know. But that song worked for Lady Gaga and when she sang it she emotionally connected with those words. So often a change is in progress that is moving towards a vision that we want to reach. There are so many forces along the way that challenge the change. So many that are beyond our control. We can be right at the edge of glory and all of a sudden, right in front of us there is something that presents itself, something out of our control that prevents us from crossing that edge.
The key is to keep going, keep your vision in front of you and keep moving with the tide, even when it changes again. Because when it changes again it brings us closer to the real shift, closer to the edge of glory until finally we cross over and see real change that can be sustained.
It is through the perseverance that we fine tune our intentions and strengthen our desire for the vision we created. It is though the perseverance where we hone in on our skills. This is the place where we work the hardest and make the most sustainable growth. It is during the perseverance where sometimes we fall to the ground and feel that we cannot continue on, it is there that we pick ourselves up, stare at the edge and suddenly we can see the over the edge. It is then we know we are just about there.
