Whether you are attempting to build a thriving business, create a lasting relationship, win a significant competition, or accomplish any worthwhile goal, persistence is essential for success.
It takes mental and physical grit to withstand complex challenges and persevere over time.
Being persistent reveals a fierce determination to face the rigors of life decisions and the willingness to find a way to win.
One of the most common reasons people fail in great endeavors is that they don’t keep pushing through after failure. Success is almost always found on the far side of failure.
Your stay power is strengthened every time you get back up and resist the temptation to give up.
It is not when you’re at the top of your game that you discover who you are. When you’re pressing through the darkest moments, true courage shines through.
How do you strengthen persistence?
By deliberately pushing yourself each day to stretch beyond your comfort zone, both physically and mentally. With persistence, you’ll conquer any obstacle that stands in the way of your success.
