Work, wait, and hope. That is enough. Compared to talent, persistence is a modest, even lowly virtue. But it's an essential one. It's the beast of burden on whose shoulders your callings and your crafts are carried to completion. Without it, your gifts and talents will never see the light of day. But the discipline needed to persevere doesn't arise solely from grim willpower , or holding yourself to task by the scruff of the neck, and certainly not from fear, though there'll be days when you pull yourself up to your work as if to a chin-up bar. Discipline is a natural byproduct of your commitment to your own integrity and authenticity, to doing what you love and what you must do.
And you must have an answer to that question that satisfies the cynic in you. Unfortunately, discipline has something of a bad name. When I think of it, I think of spankings and trips to the principle's office. I think of punishment.
But discipline is nothing more than the concentrated effort necessary to get work done. It's by not being disciplined that you truly punish yourself, because without it you drift endlessly, and your dreams recede from you.

I'm rarely completely satisfied with my artwork, but I never contemplated giving it up. It's who I am since the age of 3 and well into being an older woman. I produce more now than when I was younger, simply because I want to keep growing before I run out of time. Thanks Mille for your response to the post about Persistence. Glad you found it useful, and timely.
