When you believe in something to the point that you are willing to lose everything and keep going, you are a warrior who has made a decision to persevere believing that all things are possible. Have you made this decision that no matter what the odds, no matter what the challenges – even losing everything, that you will persevere chasing after your goals?
I would say that perseverance is perhaps the most important skill that every human needs to develop as it is essential to reaching any sort of destination whether that be: a personal goal of losing weight, starting a company, raising capital for your company, getting a piece of technology off the ground, a long-term friendship, your relationship with God, and last but not least marriage – this takes serious perseverance.
John Maxwell says a quote that I think is perfect for this, “Success seems to be largely a matter of hanging on after others have let go.” Are you willing to hang on after others have let go? When you start to lose your grip, your hands are almost bleeding, and your at the point of packing up your bags and going home, are you going to deny all of these things and stay the course of action knowing that your destination just might be right up ahead?
Today is not the day to give up….on anything, and I mean anything, today is the day that you put your head down, build a plan, and keep charging forward – this just might be the best decision you ever make that will change your life forever. Now GO.
Perseverance is not easy, but it’s worth it. So, are you going to be someone who hangs on, or are you going to be someone who, like most people, lets go?
