Perseverance is one of the main ingredients in achieving success.
I believe that we all understand that to have any chance of accomplishing our goal we need to start the project. But as soon as we hit the first obstacle, many of us fold. We rationalize our attitude by convincing ourselves that we did our “best”.
Unfortunately we don’t see that when we quit early on we deny ourselves the opportunity to learn from our mistakes and subsequently improve our performance.
The following people understood the principle of perseverance and thus succeeded in their chosen professions.
“Our greatest weakness lies in giving up. The most certain way to succeed is always to try just one more time.”
“It’s not that I’m so smart, it’s just that I stay with problems longer.”
“It always seems impossible until it’s done.” Nelson Mandela
“When obstacles arise, you change your direction to reach your goal, you do not change your decision to get there.”
“A man is not finished when he’s defeated; he’s finished when he quits.”-Richard Nixon
“Perseverance is the hard work you do after you get tired of doing the hard work you already did.” -Newt Gingrich
“Never, ever, ever, ever quit.”-Winston Churchill
Let’s remember that progress takes perseverance. And perseverance takes time. Take your time to learn, grow, and improve.
