Persistence as a key to success

One of my friend @epikcoin wrote on his post Success = persistence+mistake and i also wrote in my post yesterday on persistence. Persistence simply means the fact of continuing in an opinion or cause of action inspite of difficulty or challenges. Your level of success is determined by your level of persistence. Success and persistence works hand in hand, without persistence success cannot be attained. Being successful is a measure of your persistence. There are several challenges on the road to success,challenges like failure ,and disappointment but conquering these challenges depends on how persistent you are. Persistence is a key in achieving your set goal.

Persistence as a Key to Self-belief

“the more you persist, the more you believe in yourself, and the more you believe in yourself the more you persist” -Brian Tracy

Persistence is a key to believing in yourself which is a very important key element of self discipline. Notable achievers all have one or two things in common which are persistence and self-belief. Thomas Edison had over 10,000 experiments before discovering phonograph, Bill Gates of Microsoft, Steve Jobs of Apple and Mark Zuckerberg of Facebook all dropped out of college in pursuit of there dreams. This achievers are what they are today because of there self-belief and persistence.


In conclusion, see your challenges on your way to success as an ordeal that will make your success story interesting. Your story can never be interesting without telling people the number of times you’ve fallen and picked yourself. So never quit towards achieving your goal because you failed; just try again, and again and again because failing a number of times shows you a number of ways you can do things differently.
