Stay with It

untitled (134)

“First they ignore you, then they laugh at you, then they fight you, then you win.” – Mahatma Gandhi

I wonder how many of us have quit in the ignore, laugh, or fight stage, believing these ugly stages were all there would ever be. Today the words of Gandhi give me the strength and courage to keep pressing ahead, using the gifts and passions that I have been given…until the end.

Where would I be if my heroes, Lincoln, Gandhi, Mandela, Helen Keller, Paulo Coelho, Thoreau, and a myriad of others had not stayed with it through the ugly stages?
