Listening to a story told recently, I was reminded how important a person’s Will to Persevere is.
Simply said, that trait is a real-live, bona-fide superpower.
The ability to keep going no matter how difficult things get, how many set backs you experience, is invaluable. Perseverance will help you in work, in school, in sports, in tragedy, in love, coping with addiction, and suffering, and sickness and life.
There is nothing more powerful than the ability to get up after being knocked down, dust yourself off, and move forward. Everyone experiences failure. Those who shine are the ones that keep going.
If you’re a parent, there’s no more important trait to instill and nurture in your children. Teach them the critically valuable skills of perseverance and you’ll give them the tools they need to flourish throughout their lives.
Perseverance will serve you more faithfully and consistently and powerfully than any other trait. What’s more? It will lead you to happiness.
