Hello friends,
This week on we’ll be talking about PERSISITENCE.
Persistence is the fact of continuing in an opinion or course of action in spite of difficulty or opposition.
In the journey to significance, obstacles and challenges are a sure guaranty but what’s more evident is our victory.

Why is persistence so important?

Persistence brings you to greatness, persistence is essential for significance. Persistence makes us react positively to oppositions we face rather than giving up.
inspirational-quote-failure-thomas-edison-2We have heard of Thomas Edison who failed 10,000 times when trying to invent the light bulb and when asked about his failures Edison replied “I have not failed, I have successfully discovered 10,000 ways to not make a light bulb.” To be significant in life, we need to see opportunities in adversities just like Thomas Edision did and other great people we talk about.
With the level of negativities and Haters around, people are more likely than ever to give up on their goals and dreams too quickly in respect to inevitable challenges and failures.
Bernard Kevin said as long as there is breath in you, you persist.
Take some steps of faith.
Just like the postage stamp, its usefulness consist in the ability to stick to one thing until it gets to its destination. I charge you to stick to your purpose, stick to your passion, stick to your dreams and also stick to the process.
As a matter of fact, some people persist in reaching their goal and still end up failing and giving up, the reason is because they were not persistent in the process. You need to check frequently if the actions you are taking are getting you closer to your goals.
Failure can also be defined as being successful in the wrong things. Go back to your purpose and check your actions.
It doesn’t make sense to be running fast in the wrong direction. It doesn’t make sense to work harder if you’re working on the wrong thing, it doesn’t make sense to persist on something that doesn’t make sense. This is what I will call misplaced persistence or misplaced enthusiasm. Persistence is a virtue when you have a clear goal.

As long as you are clear on what you believe in. follow through and never give up.

Keep moving.
God bless you.
Have a great week.

Kind Regards,

Oluwadara Adekunle
