What Is Persistence?
“Persistence is defined as the fact of continuing in an opinion or course of action in spite of difficulty or opposition”
We all face difficulties throughout our life. There are many fluctuations in our lives. Sometimes we are happy, sometimes sad. Sometimes we win while sometimes loss. This is the beauty of life. That is why our life is so much interesting. Most of the people like colorful things. The rainbow has many different colors that is why it appears that beautiful in the sky. It would not have been that much beautiful if it contained only one color.
The same is everything in this universe. God has designed everything so beautifully. The same is with success and failure. Success and failure are the two facets of a coin. Sometimes the side of “failure” comes, while sometimes the side of “Success”. But the thing is that a person has to master tossing this coin. He must master himself in bringing “Success” face of the coin most of the time if not always. For this, there are many things a person has to do, and one of the most important among them is persistence. This power is the strongest power behind success. A person has to always struggle to get what he wants. From every perspective, either scientific or religious, the struggle is the reason behind success.
But the question is if persistence and few other attributes guarantee success, then why are 98% of the people in the world facing failure. And the question is that all the attributes of success are a kind of game. There are many stages of it, like imagining, planning and desiring something. And the toughest level in this game is the level of persistence.
Most of the people give up on their dreams. They are not well persistent. Few people give up on the first failure, few people give up after several tries and only those succeed who never ever give up. Those become the winners who are persistent until the last second. They are the people who deserve success. And this is the reason 98% of the people fail because somehow somewhere they lose any level of “The Game Of Success”.
