Sometimes in life, when life happens and things aren’t going well, the only thing we have left to do is persevere. Whether it’s a business, marriage, or a workplace situation, we need to keep going forward and hang in there. We must learn to weather the storm and never quit. Quitters never win or succeed. Those that persevere, 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”. 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. 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.
