The line between perseverence and pride. When you know that to be successful you must fight through all challenges to carry your idea to fruition, but you also know that such obession is just filling your own sails when the reality may be that the idea just doesn't have it.
Passion drives you, wisdom tempers you. While remaining open to Divine guidance.
- a calmness or repose especially of mind, bearing, or appearance : self-possession.
- control of one's emotions or reactions especially when under stress.
Both desireable qualities. But what about when Divine guidance suggests that you should not wait for composure, that waiting for composure is an infinite excuse for inertia.
How does this negotiate the line between perseverance and pride?
Sensitive steps to identify your motive. What it is that you are fighting for? An essential question of Faith and detachment. Define your motive and take the plunge. With passion and wisdom and composure.
