Energy is always required to provide lift over opposing forces. These same laws apply in our personal lives. Whenever an undertaking is begun, both the energy and the will to endure are essential. The winner of a five-kilometer race is declared at the end of†five†kilometers, not at one or two. If you board a bus to Boston, you donít get off at Burlington. If you want to gain an education, you donít drop out along the wayójust as you donít pay to dine at an elegant restaurant only to walk away after sampling the salad.


Whatever your work may be, endure at the beginning, endure through opposing forces along the way, and endure to the end. Any job must be completed before you can enjoy the result for which you are working.

How can we break bad habits and form healthy new ones? The Savior gives us insight into the process in the following magnificent parable.


"For which of you, intending to build a tower, sitteth not down first, and counteth the cost, whether he have sufficient to finish it?


"Lest haply, after he hath laid the foundation, and is not able to finish it, all that behold it begin to mock him,


"Saying, This man began to build, and was not able to finish."


(Luke 14: 28-30)


Most of us are great starters and poor finishers. We begin to "mock" at ourselves, to lose faith in our ability to keep the promises we make with ourselves.


We simply to do not sit down first and count the cost to see if we have sufficent to finish - sufficent desire, sufficient internal thrust. We try to lift off our launching pad without realistically calculating the "g's" (gravity pull) and the resistance of the atmosphere (our environment).
