The Power of Persistence

"I do not think there is any other quality so essential to success of any kind as the quality of perseverance. It overcomes everything, even nature."
- John D. Rockefeller

How meditation cultivates the “Power of Persistence”?
Beginning: Learning the meditation is the very act of persistence. Our mind races in thousand directions and is speedier than light. The journey of mind control reaches the destination of mind mastery by just keep on trying without giving up.

Practicing: The road of practicing the meditation daily is also full of hurdles, distractions and deviations. The sheer resolve to practice the meditation daily announces our power of persistence. This gets accumulated as our practice increases and helps in all other areas of life.

As Ralph Waldo Emerson said, "That which we persist in doing becomes easy to do; not that the nature of the thing has changed, but that our power to do has increased." Similarly our continuing practice of meditation becomes easy, pleasant and rewarding.

Mastering: Over the period of time the old patterns and habits gets transformed permanently with healthy, calming and joyful attitude and feeling of abundance of health, wealth and happiness.

"Nothing in the world can take the place of Persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent. The slogan “Press On” has solved, and always will solve, the problems of the human race".
– Calvin Coolidge, the 30th US President
