Whenever we get the chance, we remind you that the name SemperVerus is Latin for Stay True and its foundation is the Bible verse 1 Timothy 4:16 (NLT) — “Keep a close watch on how you live and on your teaching. Stay true to what is right for the sake of your own salvation and the salvation of those who hear you.”

In his article, Leadership and Self-Awareness…, Dr. James Scott, Jr., says, “Sin is humanity’s great problem, but a wholesale lack of self-awareness…is a leading contributor to the problems and troubles we create for ourselves. We hurtle through life more unconscious of our own selves, and the lives of others, than sharply aware and purposely alert.”

Dedication and the Way of Perseverance

In The MagLife Blog article titled “Dedication,” author and defensive tactics subject matter expert Steve Tarani says, “Success is commonly and rightfully attributed to dedication.” While a parallel word for dedication is commitment, a stronger one is the word perseverance.

“…perseverance [produces] character and character, hope.” Romans 5:4

Tarani suggests the characteristics of perspective, mental engagement, and prowess are three approaches that hone dedication (or perseverance) in a person’s life.
