Ideal is the time when a gorgeous girl’s beauty and sex appeal shines while plying her trade on the grueling professional women’s tour and her wins mightily exceed her on court preparation.

We so often see the names and astounding prize money of the top stars on tour but what about the players with winning records who still have yet to break through?

How are they doing financially?

Typically not well, so to endure, they must keep hope and have perseverance.

“Success is no accident. It is hard work, perseverance, learning, studying, sacrifice and most of all, love of what you are doing or learning to do.”… Pele

One such young aspiring star on the tour where her incredible beauty has yet to translate into substantial prize money is Marianna Zakarlyuk from Ukraine.

Ukraine, sometimes mistakenly pronounced The Ukraine which is like saying The New York, is a sovereign state in Eastern Europe, bordered by Russia to the east and northeast; Belarus to the northwest; Poland, Hungary, and Slovakia to the west; Romania and Moldova to the southwest; and the Black Sea and Sea of Azov to the south and southeast, respectively.

Ukraine has a population of about 42.5 million, making it the 32nd most populous country in the world.Ukranian

Given her astounding beauty, can we call her The Ukrainian Princess or should we just say Ukraine Princess?

She certainly is a sweet looking young woman.

Just star gaze at her? Doesn’t she look incredible?

According to she loves the hard courts over grass and clay.

If only her prize money was incredible because her record is actually pretty good.

What is her highest ranking to date?

This article is as of April 12, 2018.

According to her highest ranking is 559.

Her record from 2010 through 2017 is actually very respectable at 164 wins vs 114 losses. To some degree even admirable.

So, what does that get you in prize money?

As reported at her entire career purse is $37,645 which seems to imply, given her fairly impressive won lost record that Marianna must be competing in smaller tournaments which offer lower USTA point totals and award smaller prize money as well.

At age 21, we hope that she still lives at home.

What we admire is that Marianna has been at this for 7 years and hasn’t given up.

We hope she doesn’t. We hope that she perseveres.

For more inspiration on perseverance, let’s turn our attention to a visiting female writer.

Perseverance – Never Give Up – How to Find Your Warrior Spirit

By Wendy Hill

There are a few things in life you cannot afford to live without. Warrior Spirit is one of them. There are times when perseverance may be the only thing that sees you through. It is essential to know how to get in touch with this vital part of yourself. Here is how to find your Warrior Spirit.

Consider this quote on courage. “Courage in not the lack of fear. It is the willingness to persevere in spite of fear.” Perseverance or Warrior Spirit is not just moving ahead through the difficulties of a task. It is moving ahead for a virtuous cause and sacrificing some part of yourself in spite of the obstacles and your fear. Fear of shame, fear of failure, fear of success, fear of loss of health, fear of loss of time, fear of making the wrong decision are all fears you must persevere through.

What is a virtuous cause? It is cause or a goal that has redeeming qualities especially if the end product enhances one’s personal or spiritual growth. Your intent must be for the greater good. Not just for ego satisfaction. Quitting smoking can be a virtuous cause. Learning a new language can be a virtuous cause. Getting a degree can be a virtuous cause. Being a good parent, letting yourself lose a competition, telling the truth even though it will make you look bad, setting a boundary no one else likes, taking a stand when others will not all can be virtuous causes. The key is your intention. When you are clear that you intention is virtuous, then find your Warrior Spirit and persevere with determination.

Why is sacrificing something of the self a part of Warrior Spirit? If it were easy you would not need Warrior Spirit. The most common reason for people quitting is that they are unwilling to experience discomfort and unwilling to give up something. Be willing to be uncomfortable and you will find that you are not as uncomfortable as you might have thought you would be. This is one of the paradoxes of life. Once you accept that which is difficult you find that it is no longer as difficult.

Sacrifice and persevere using wisdom. Persevering for the sake of perseverance is not necessarily virtuous especially if you are stubbornly doing something out of your ego desire to have something. Learn to make a distinction between what your ego wants and what is truly virtuous. One can persevere for evil and destructive ends. Go within yourself and ask for guidance. You have within you a great loving wise self. Trust it. Learn to listen to its voice within you. Follow it.

Sometimes life throws at you circumstances that require that you do things you would rather avoid. Sometimes you want something that requires you to go through a number of hurdles before you get to your final goal. Sometimes you are compelled simply by your code of ethics to do something difficult. Whatever the circumstances persevere.

Be patient. Take one step at a time. Don’t try to skip steps just to get there faster or to avoid discomfort. For example, you want to learn how to play an instrument or learn a new software. Don’t rush. Take your time. One step at a time. Be patient. Persevere even though you may not learn as fast as you want. Your patience will pay off in the end.

Above all, don’t let opposition stop you. You may not get to your goal as fast as you want and you may be discouraged or disappointed or you may have to try alternate ways of achieving your goal. That’s life and that’s the nature of achieving things of value. It’s difficult. So what! Don’t allow other people’s doubts and judgments to deter you. You and you alone know what’s right for you. Follow that great loving wise voice within you.

Warrior spirit is your birthright. Persevere with determination. You will achieve your goals. Choose your goals wisely. Listen to the great loving wise one within yourself. Don’t be afraid of sacrifice and difficulty. Walk right through them. You will raise your own self-esteem and inspire others with your courage and determination.
