Choosing Your Path to Perseverance.
What is Perseverance?
There was a group of merchants traveling in the desert, going to sell their food and goods. These men could only travel at night since it was so hot in the day time. Traveling in the dark would make it very difficult to see if there was anything in their way. The men got to their resting spot safely on the first day, but on the last day almost every thing went horribly wrong. Since they thought that they would be in the city the next day , they threw everything out. This included their water. The pilot fell asleep so there was nobody to navigate them to the city. The oxen went in a circle, and the merchants ended up in the same place that they started in the night before. The men had become lost, tired, and thirsty. The men can’t cook rice without their water, and the oxen cannot go unless they have water. A merchant told himself that he needed to find water, and so he kept walking and looking for water, and at last he found a patch of grass. He thought to himself, “There must be water somewhere below, or that grass would not be there.” He grabbed his men, and they started digging for the water. They finally got to it, and they all drank from it including the oxen, and cooked rice with this water. At night they set off to the city to where they need to sell their goods.
