Without it – not much happens. Chances are, the first time you attempt something, you’re not going to be successful. Without persistence you’ll just throw in the towel, roll over and expire. Persistence is the ‘fall down seven times, get up eight’ principle. It’s dipping down inside of you for that energy to do just one more thing, when you feel you can’t go any more. It’s the drive you need to lose the last five pounds, to finish paying off the credit card even though you’ve cleared almost all, to quit smoking completely although you’re now only down to one pack a day.
Persistence means don’t settle – don’t get comfortable – don’t relax – until you really get to where you want to go.
Stop and rest a bit for sure – but don’t rest too long. Getting back in the game is the hardest thing to do. When you build momentum you just keep going – and going and then before you know it – you’ll be there – and then there – and then THERE!
It’s all possible for you if only you’d persist!
