“The secret of victory lies not wholly in knowledge. It lurks invisible in that vitalizing spark, intangible, yet as evident as the lightning – the warrior soul. The fixed determination to acquire the warrior soul, and having acquired it, to either conquer or perish with honor, is the secret of victory.” General George Patton
This quote hits close to home when it comes to achieving my goal of obtaining my CPA. It’s what’s within that will allow me to achieve this goal. Not the type of information I’m learning, or the amount, but my persistence, perseverance, my “warrior soul”.
This leads to this weeks word of the week….Warrior. Dictionary.com defines warrior as “a person who shows or has shown great vigor, courage, or aggressiveness”. I must develop a warrior soul, a mind that is not easily defeated, discouraged, or put down. One that can take a set back and turn it into a triumph. As the quote says, I must have the “fixed determination to acquire the warrior soul” as it is the key to victory. Starting today, I will become that warrior, one with determination out of this world. One with the ability to be able to do what my mind sets out to do all while still maintaining all things important to me. Adjustments will have to be made but I will not lose myself or those close to me during this process. I will succeed, I will triumph, I will not be discouraged…I will obtain my CPA….with my warrior soul leading me to victory.
On the study front…things are moving right along. Of course I did NOT stay on schedule as I never do. 😦 Again…I strive to do better. I’m in the midst of B3 and I can see the light of the tunnel. I plan to finish B3 and start B4 tonight. There’s no reason I cant be finishing up B5 by the weekend. Then the usual (which I’m just getting the hang of) MCQ’s. Oh well…gotta get to the books.
I will pass this test!
Until next time….good night
