~Paramahansa Yogananda

Purity: Stay…

  • clear and aligned with your purpose, values, and desired intention
  • pointed toward feeling satisfied and optimistic moment-by-moment
  • centered, balanced, and organized to deal with whatever arises

Patience: Be patient and kind with…

  • yourself and your shortcomings
  • others—refrain from judging their motivations
  • the process and all involved—trust and allow things to unfold organically

Perseverance: Continue to…

In all your endeavors, choose an attitude of gratitude. Celebrate small successes. Show appreciation to all in your circle of influence. Enjoy the journey.
