Persistence: Refusing to give up, especially when faced with opposition or difficulty; continuing firmly or steadily.
Persistence: The act of continually pursuing something in spite of obstacles.
2. An Open Mind
5. Faith 6.
If having a dream and committing to its ultimate achievement is something like plotting your final destination ahead of an exciting journey, then persistence is rather like the engine you need in order to get there.
Persistence is what drives you on to take the next step in your journey; persistence is what prevents you from getting discouraged by what may have happened in the past; persistence is where the rubber meets the road!
Here is a story, of unknown origin that illustrates what persistence is all about …
There was a certain young man who went to meet a famous guru to ask the question: “Which way is success?“
The wise old sage did not speak but instead pointed to some place far off in the distance. The man, delighted at the thought of quick and easy success, took off in the appropriate direction. Suddenly, there was a loud “splat!” Eventually, the man staggered back, bruised and stunned, assuming he must have misunderstood the message. He repeated his question to the guru, who again pointed silently in the same direction.
The man walked away once more. After some time, there was another “splat!” and, this time, the splat was deafening. When the man crawled back, he was broken, wounded, and angry. “Hey, I asked you which way is success,” he shouted at the guru. “I followed your directions and all I got was splatted! No more of this pointing – talk!”
Only then did the wise old guru speak, and what he said was this: “Success IS that way, just a little further on than splat!”
Translating your dream into an action plan and then constantly taking actions, each and every day, that will move you in the direction of your goal is what will get you there in the end. No matter how big your goal, you can get there if you will keep your destination in mind and then continually take actions that move you toward the goal.
When you meet an obstacle, as you inevitably will, persistence determines what you will do; whether you will give up or keep going. Persistence is what gets you back on your feet, dusted down and ready to go again.
Persistence is what gets you past SPLAT!
