via Daily Prompt: Survive

Success is the sum of small efforts repeated day in and day out.

Robert Collier

Sometimes… the small effort is getting out of bed.

Sometimes… the small effort is putting a smile on your face when you don’t want to.

Just because your definition of ‘success’ might involve achieving greatness in some realm or other, doesn’t mean that the first very smallest effort is more than surviving to see it.

When you grow discouraged at your lack of progress toward your success, it might be time to sit back and just wait. You’re busy, you’re crazy, there are demands on your time.

If you cannot stand, you cannot step toward your hopes and dreams. But there are days when keeping your feet under you is the greater fight to win.

Survive so you can thrive, stay the course so you can succeed.

Fight on, my friends.
