Quotes To Live By

Quote #45: Jacqueline Leapheart

Hi, I'm Jacqueline Leapheart I am a graduate of the 2021 Certificate in Creating Wellbeing through my workplace at Adoption Option Inc. and am a member of the Midland Area Wellbeing Coalition. A quote that inspires me is "A river cuts through a rock not because of its power but because of its persistence.", said by James N Watkins. The reason I find this quote so inspiring is because it seems so amazingly simplistic -water through a rock. But is it even possible? It is possible with persistence and a little bit of time -or maybe a lot -you can achieve anything that you set your mind to. This encourages me to be persistent which in itself sometimes is a feat. Persistence is not something that one comes by easily or without effort. It requires daily effort and commitment. This quote supports my wellbeing by continually pushing me to strive for what I know I can achieve if I am just persistent and keep trying. So, What rock will your river cut through? This has been brought to you by the Midland Area Wellbeing Coalition's Quotes to Live By series. Thank you for reading.
