Persistence Pays Off
Sometimes in life, when life happens and things aren’t going well, the only thing we have left to do is persevere.
Weather the storm:
Whether it’s a business, marriage, or a workplace situation, we need to keep going forward and to hang in there. We have to learn to weather the storm and never quit. Quitters never win or succeed. Those that persevere and keep going and keep pushing look for ways to make it work and obtain the prize.
So many people have a habit of quitting and giving up as soon as they encounter an obstacle. They see obstacles as a “no” or too hard to overcome. Webster’s Dictionary defines persevere as: to continue in some effort, course of action, or pursuit in spite of difficulty or opposition.
This is how we should adjust our attitude: by attaining perseverance instead of quitting. Some quit way too soon, and this is a reason why, for some of us, nothing seems to work out for us. It’s not that things couldn’t work out — it’s that sometimes people quit on a dream, a job, or a marriage way too soon.
Let’s purpose to develop habits that will help us, not defeat us.
Just a thought,
