How to be Diligent in Achieving Success

Inch-by-inch, and step-by-step

Diligence is carefulness and persistent effort or work.

One of the seven heavenly virtues, it is indicative of a strong work ethic, meaning there is a belief that work is good in itself.

Diligence is not just about business and material things. It is an integral part of all spiritual teachings and is said in many traditions to lead to liberation. The practice of diligence is done to bring an increase in all the best human qualities.

In Christianity, diligence is the effort to do one’s part while keeping faith and reliance on God. In other words, diligence and faith are two sides of a mystery. One does not know how, despite one’s effort, it all works out; but diligence, when combined with faith, assures spiritual success. Diligence is one of seven virtues that describe thoroughness, completeness, and persistence of action.

About my stories on Medium

Most of my Medium stories, when related to natural healing. self-improvement, life lessons, mental health, and Eastern Philosophy are anchored into the concept of Applied Game Theory. This idea explores how and why people make certain choices, including decisions related to their health, well-being, and self-awareness.

I’m passionate about offering advice on creativity, innovation, inspiration, self-improvement, life lessons, mental health information, love, & movie reviews.
