PERSEVERANCE….IS IT REALLY THE KEY TO SUCCESS?
“PERSEVERANCE IS THE HARD WORK YOU DO AFTER YOU GET TIRED OF DOING THE HARD WORK YOU ALREADY DID.” – Newt Gingrich
“How you do anything is how you do everything.” – T. HarvEker
Perseverance is a steady persistence in a course of action-trying again and again. It is the inner machine that keeps you going. I’ve realised that I have to be committed in all I do to have success and not give up, no matter the circumstances. There were times I felt like giving up, I felt drained, discouraged and thought it made no sense to continue fighting what seemed to be a losing battle.Can you relate to this?
Ask yourself this question which will determine if perseverance is the key to success for you: “If you give up, who will fight for you?”
You may be lacking perseverance as a parent, maybe you are as a student, in your business, or as an individual trying to overcome a specific challenge. Sometimes it takes very little to bring you to the point of giving up when you are not seeing the result you expected.
Many want to achieve what they want comfortably, but if you’re not yet successful and you’re too comfortable. You are not far from experiencing poverty.
Taking risks is not comfortable: If you were to ask the most successful people in the world how they reached success, they will talk about an uncomfortable time in their life that they had to persevere through.
Let’s take a look at some practical steps you can take to move forward successfully.
5 TIPS ON HOW TO PERSEVERE THROUGH CHALLENGES
- Learn how to manage stress and make time for yourself
- Ensure you set realistic goals and develop the mental capacity to reach them.
- Have confidence in yourself.
- Don’t compare yourself to others; we all differ in strengths and talents, and drawing comparisons will put unfair pressure on you.
- Stay resilient at all times.
How many times have you started an important task or project but gave up when faced with a challenge?
Have you ever stopped to ask yourself how much you would have achieved if you didn’t give up?
How long are you going to make it to the starting line but not the finish line?
Are you not aching to experience the feeling of success instead of getting excited by just watching others?
So what is the challenge that you are facing now and have you been tempted to go back into your comfort zone? If yes, ask yourself this question; will I benefit more from giving up and continuing the vicious cycle – in a Rat race going nowhere or persevering to accomplish your desired success?
