I stand, and stand
Still as rock
Have I stood so long.
I stare, and stare
I quiver, I quiver
I stand my ground
This time round.
I am reading ‘Think And Grow Rich’ by Napoleon Hill as part of my Financial Education.
Reading the first story of a little girl standing up to an adult man made me think that the lesson may be in Standing One’s Ground. Believing in one’s endeavour until results are seen is a vital lesson in endurance and perseverance.
For me personally, the belief in my work as an artist must be sustained through lean times, when no perceivable progress is being made. I must trust my course of action and face down the Doubt Devil, eye ball to eye ball.
In this way alone can I hope to achieve long term results.
