The Power of Perseverance

Perseverance is the most important trait that defines success. Throughout your journey towards achieving any particular goal in your life, you will experience the great moments where you are making progress and the moments when you question why are you doing this and what’s the point in continuing. When you experience bad moments throughout your journey, that’s where perseverance comes in. Having perseverance will help you to overcome those bad days or moments that act as a roadblock towards your success and most importantly it will help you to keep going. The important thing to remember is to not let yourself see those bad days or moments as failures, see it as a small roadblock that you need to overcome in order to be one step towards achieving your particular goal. I have experienced my fair share of roadblocks in my life that I had to overcome throughout my journey in achieving my dreams. In 2011, I didn’t get into university because of my high school overall position score. To this today, I’m an university student in my ideal course that I wanted to do when I was in high school. I didn’t give up. I persevered through that moment in my life and looked for a way to overcome this roadblock. In 2013, I have experienced a personal struggle in my life where I was in a abusive relationship. After months of mental recovery, education and seeking inspiration to get back up; I have overcome that roadblock in my life through the power of perseverance which helped me to become a stronger person mentally and my self-belief increased so much.

Perseverance isn’t just a fancy word. It’s the key towards success.
