Perseverance is the act of continuing something despite difficulty and it is key if you desire to be successful. If you ever engage with any successful person, I can assure you that they can share a story or two about their failures and hardships.
The road to success is not always an easy one, that's just life. If there is one thing that most successful people have in common is that they didn't give up. They understood that success doesn't happen overnight and if you really want something, you have to keep going after it, no matter what.
The road will be long and bumpy with many detours and most days you'll want to quit, you'll break down and feel like it's the end but I want to remind you that it's far from the end. Instead of getting frustrated when things don't go as planned, remember why you started and determine whether you need to restrategize. You can even take a break so that you come back feeling refreshed and recharged but the most important part is to come back ready to try again, do not stay stuck in self doubt and negativity.
If we're honest with ourselves, most of us get even more demotivated when we look around and see many others flourishing and living their best lives. As I've said before, we compare ourselves to the unknown, to what people don't show us and what we don't see.
Those people who you follow and envy, who seem to have it all, they've been frustrated before. They've sacrificied their time, money, energy and even missed out on quality time with family and friends. They've been broke to the point where they had nowhere to sleep and the only thing that kept them going was the hope of their dream coming to fruition. I'm saying all of this to say that you need to keep believing in yourself and know that we all struggle and experience hardships, you're not alone.
Don't give up on something great just because the journey to get there may be long and difficult.
Keep going, keep believing, keep praying.
