Life is not about the security of livelihood, but to have lived true to your calling or purpose.
When someone gets excited and says I will go through whatever, and then lives up to it, then they embark on the journey. Strong in essence, but you live life one day at a time. In terms of endurance, in the past, the way of the desert was cut out like that but not any longer it was Bedouin culture but they had no choice. Arabian horses have proven to be one of the most successful breeds in endurance. What I’m referring to, is the kind of people who lived here, still, live here from where these horses emerged. The attitude of those who dwell on the land of these Arabian horses, and a sense of endurance can change the people who live here. It may have somehow inspired me with the spirit of endurance that comes from this geography, that has you addicted to its flowing sands and calm sea.
A few quotes from one of my favorite person on this planet – Mohammed Ali, who fought on in the boxing match against Norton, even with a broken jaw. His words don’t only put the spirit of endurance in perspective but also provide the good reason to do it for.
“All through my life, I have been tested. My will has been tested, my courage has been tested, my strength has been tested. Now my patience and endurance are being tested.”
“When we devote all of our actions to a spiritual goal, everything that we do becomes a prayer.”
“Each time I thought I had achieved my life’s purpose, I discovered it was only another step in my journey.”
“ I recognize how every moment of our journey is an important part of the growth of our soul. ”
“Truly great people in history never wanted to be great for themselves. All they wanted was the chance to do good for others and be close to God.”
― Muhammad Ali, The Soul of a Butterfly: Reflections on Life’s Journey
