Perseverance, A Tool That Really Works…


Giving up on a difficult chase when you are never getting to the destination is a common trace in most human beings. Anytime I am asked to differentiate between a successful person and a failure, my answer has always been simple; a successful man is the one who believes in perseverance while a failure dwells on giving up.

The above distinction points out the correlation between Perseverance and Success. Without perseverance, Success becomes a conception which is fully attributed to Luck.

I will not dig into the controversy surrounding Lucky and Success in this post but would like to mention that, even if you believe Success is wholly founded on Luck, then perseverance is still essential since it will surely bring this “Luck” one day.

The level of one’s desire to continuously push on as we chase Success is a simple indication of whether such a person would actually be successful or not. Success does not always show up after a single or double try.

Walking away from your desire and the success you have been yearning for after failing several times has never been an option for any successful individual. Being able to repackage yourself and with new knowledge learnt from the mistakes you have made which landed you on the rocks of failure to continue the chase is what will get you there. This is “Perseverance”.

The word Success which is not far stretched from Succeed has the bottom meaning “follow through”. You must follow through, keep going, come back stronger and keep hitting hard and harder on your object of interest-“Perseverance”. This is what will fetch you the success you desire.

Bear in mind that the road to success is lined with so many tempting parking spaces. Do not be swindled into settling in any of these parks even if you are hit with the strongest thunder of failure.

Cultivate and develop a habit of Persistence, for doggedness is a great tool of success. Remember “If you only knock long enough at the gate, you are sure to wake up somebody.”

Keep knocking and each time you knock, knock harder than before. With this, the gate of success will eventually be opened for you to walk through.
