Why is persistence a necessary quality for us to have? Let’s first take a look at the meaning of persistence in our Webster Dictionary.
Persistence-1. firm or obstinate continuance in a course of action in spite of difficulty or opposition. 2. The continued or prolonged existence of something.
Daily Wisdom Word Definition-1. The part of us that simply doesn’t and won’t give up on something and continually tries to achieve success with whatever it is your pursuing.
Persistence in my opinion, in necessary in this world today. Yes, it is certainly true that certain things are meant to be and automatically fall in place, but there is a dichotomy here. It is also true that some of the best things in life are the hardest worked for and the longest pursued. Often, too easily, we give up on things we really would like to pursue using the excuse that whatever it is, does not fall into place immediately, so it is not meant to be.
Persistence is simply fighting for what you want. Persistence in my past, has gotten me every job I’ve ever pursued, if it was meant to be. We must put our work and our time in sometimes to get whatever it is we are pursuing, and this includes love relationships. Sometimes, it is also easy with a relationship to give up on it too easily, believing that because everything did not feel right immediately, it is not meant to be.
My point is in life,is, we have to give everything a sincere opportunity and pursue each opportunity to its fullest. It is altogether too easy to give up before we really have given whatever it is a chance or poured our own heart into it to do this.
I do believe that certain things do, “simply fall into place”. However, not everything. Go after what you want to the fullest, as long as it does not hurt others while your in the process of pursuing whatever this is.
Thanks so much for reading about persistence today! Have a beautiful and blessed day.
