Phaytea’s Pulse is participating in the #AtoZChallenge for 2017. The Theme is ‘Awakening of Self’ and ‘Zeal with discipline’ is our entry for letter Z. The theme focuses on character traits that will gear us towards Meaningful Living and will run for 26 days in April except sundays. Please stop by the blog everyday for subsequent posts as we read the 26 letters of the alphabet together. Enjoy!!☺☺
Ring the alarm Lovelies!!!!!
We reached the finish line?????
Super proud we got here and thankful to everyone who followed the journey from A or joined midway.
There’s just Letter Z to go and it is Zeal with discipline.
“Nothing great was ever achieved without enthusiasm”- Ralph Waldo Emerson
We definitely need zeal to follow through on our goals and ambitions.
It is zeal that makes us want to keep pushing earnestly and feel the urge to go through thick and thin while seeking to achieve our goals.
Zeal is important and has so amazing benefits that tilts us to our goals. It allows us remain optimistic even when we get tired of trying.
That being said, do you also know that being overzealous can get us into a lot of trouble?
“Zeal is like fire: it needs both feeding and watching”.
In a bid to reach our goals, we will face lots of challenges that may drive us into compromising core values and disregarding due procedures.
Our zeal to succeed should never be out of control.
It is important to be cautious and aware of our choices while pursuing our goals.
“Zeal without doctrine is like a sword in the hands of a lunatic”- John Calvin
I love this quote from John Calvin because it hits the nail right on the head.
Zeal without proper guidance is like a disaster waiting to happen.
It is important for us to have the zeal to succeed and remain disciplined because:
- It helps us stay in line with our goals.
- We can avoid the repercussions of not following due processes.
- We are in control of our thought process and can make use of our discretion.
- We can avoid complete loss of our ambitions.
For a meaningful life, always remember that having the zeal to pursue our goal is just as important as monitoring our zeal so that it does not become uncontrollable.
Share your thoughts about zeal or being overzealous.
I’ll love to read from you
