Perseverance Begins With the Right Attitude

“Perseverance begins with the right attitude – an attitude of tenacity.

The desire to persevere alone isn’t enough to keep most people going when they are tired or discouraged. Perseverance is a trait that can be cultivated. And the initial step to developing it is to eliminate its five greatest enemies.

Perseverance requires determination. If you take the time and effort to cultivate tenacity, you can achieve the impossible.

However, there are endless temptations, false beliefs, and distractions that can lead to abandoning what once seemed of the utmost importance.”

According to John C Maxwell’s book, Beyond Talent, we must eliminate the five greatest enemies of perseverance. Eliminating the following five things will bring greater chance of success:

  1. A Life Style of Giving up
  2. A wrong belief that life should be easy
  3. A wrong belief that success is destination
  4. A lack of resiliency
  5. A Lack of Vision

Here are some great quotes on perseverance:

“Success is not final, failure is not fatal: it is the courage to continue that counts.” ~Winston Churchill

“The race is not [always] to the swift, nor the battle to the strong.” [Ecclesiastes 9:11] Bible

Don’t be afraid to give your best to what seemingly are small jobs.  Every time you conquer one it makes you that much stronger.  If you do the little jobs well, the big ones will tend to take care of themselves.  ~Dale Carnegie

When the world says, “Give up,” Hope whispers, “Try it one more time.” ~Author Unknown
