Perseverance is to persist in anything you undertake; maintain a purpose despite difficulties, troubles, obstacles, or feeling discouraged.
Is perseverance something that is easy for you during difficult times and disappointments, or is it something you struggle to overcome, wanting to give up? Do you get weighed down by fears? What holds you back from pressing on to pursue your purpose in life?
When you do push through difficulties or obstacles, what helps you to move on, and persevere?
We live in a society that wants everything instantly, so persevering to achieve goals, move to the next level, or overcome setbacks or problems is something many give up on because they want immediate results. Anything worth achieving, pursuing, and improving takes time and persistence. It takes the will and the drive to not give up.
We all will face setbacks, troubles, and difficulties. The way we handle those things is the difference between success and failure, whether in a career, personal life, marriage, relationships, schooling. The choice is yours on how you react, and what you do, or don't do, to make life better.
Persevering is not easy. It takes determination to continue on to achieve goals and dreams in life. It takes the will to get back up and dust yourself off if you get knocked down, to keep taking steps forward, even if those steps are difficult ones. Many times, you will feel like quitting or giving up right before a breakthrough. Don't quit. Don't give up. Keep pursuing your goals, keep working to overcome your obstacles. It will be worth the effort.
