If you believe in yourself and have dedication and pride – and never quit, you’ll be a winner. The price of victory is high but so are the rewards.

Bear Bryant

I think we can be realistic enough to know that confidence, dedication, and consistency doesn’t always get us the rewards we want. But I feel like those three things bring me pride and joy and they also increase my overall well-being. A few years ago I wasn’t in the greatest place and it had been that way for what felt like forever. Now that I have the energy to do all the things I want to do, I’m excited to be alive and accept all these parts of me that I never really understood how to appreciate. I love this quote because at face value it’s seems overly optimistic then when I think about how those things positively impact my own life, I see how true the statement really is.

I think what’s left out here is that sometimes things like confidence, dedication, and consistency are not accessible to people. Health and security really do affect our ability to access those character traits in a way that’s rewarding.

So I guess I say all that to say that some people don’t have access to the rewards but if you have decent health and security to develop these skills, go for it!! The rewards are priceless.

How’s your Confidence, dedication, and consistency? Do you think those things are overrated?

I didn't realize the thing I was searching for held what was most important; my soul purpose." Jayne works daily on improving her craft and at times can get down on herself, but her favorite morning mantra is "It's a new day." and that's what she strives to start with.
