Diligence is Serious Business

Imagine what life would be like if we approached each important task with discipline and focus; if we always did our best; if we persevered even when things became difficult or discouraging. What you are “imagining” is the characteristic of diligence, and is a quality that can help us become the best people we possibly can be.
Having diligence is a potent force in our lives. It enables us to achieve ambitious goals despite encountering setbacks. People who are diligent understand that the biggest setbacks in life are often caused by our own fears and inaction. Being diligent keeps us on track and eliminates unnecessary obstacles. Below is a survey to see if you are diligent; answer the questions and read on.
Did you answer “false” to any of the questions above? You must work to make all of your answers “true.”
It takes diligence to make good grades, earn a promotion, compete in a tournament, earn your black belt, and fulfill your dreams. Think about your biggest dreams. What is preventing your from making them come true? If you are diligent then you can achieve your dreams. It may not be overnight, but being diligent means that you will work hard for however long it takes to accomplish your goals.
Think about how diligence can make a difference in your life. Write out ways that diligence has helped you accomplish goals in the past. Then, write out ways that lack of diligence has kept you from achieving a goal. Finally, write out a goal that you wish to accomplish and how diligence will help you get there.
The next time you are on the verge of quitting, think about diligence and the positive power that it has on your life. You will be surprised at what you can achieve once you practice having a diligent attitude.
