Steadfastness is being steady and dependable, sticking with something no matter what. Steadfastness is being faithful and purposeful. It is remaining true to someone or something in spite of any tests or obstacles that appear to stop you. When you are steadfast, you commit yourself to something for however long it may take. You are like a strong ship in a storm. You donít let yourself become battered or blown off course. You just ride the waves.
I am practicing Steadfastness
- Think about whether I really want to commit to someone or something
- Decide to commit
- Pace myself
- Take it one step at a time, remaining steady
- Donít let doubts or tests blow me off course
- Stand by my friends and loved ones
I am steadfast. I keep a steady pace in what I choose to do. I keep on keeping on. I am a loyal and committed friend.
