Likewise, I must not be timid, deeming some virtuous projects too difficult to undertake.
Instead, I shall accomplish every virtuous activity.
I have the capacity to accomplish them now, and will accomplish them persistently.
This is armor-like diligence.
When putting virtuous actions into practice, I shall not give in to distraction and lethargy, but rather vigorously engage in beneficial acts of body, speech, and mind.
Remaining enthusiastic, I shall extend and prolong virtuous activity.
This is the diligence of application.
If the signs of attainment do not quickly arise, or if a virtuous project cannot be concluded as expected, I shall not let enthusiasm wane, no matter how much hardship I endure.
This is irreversible diligence.
