Persistence isn’t doing the exact same thing over and over. That’s easy. You could do that without even thinking about it. Instead, persistence is pursuing your Wildly Important Goal over and over, even when people tell you that you can’t do it. Even when business plan competitions tell you that your idea won’t work. Even when you gave it your all and a naysayer told you that your all wasn’t good enough.
Having persistence is not easy. In fact, it might be the hardest thing you could ever do. But sometimes you have to do it. Especially if you believe in the work that you are doing. Persistence is what happens when you have a goal you believe in, and you do everything you can to make it work. To prove to the naysayers that they were wrong.
I have persistence right now. What about you?
