Why is persistence important for success? (Self-Improvement)

“The key of persistence will open up any door that has been closed by resistance.” – John Di Lemme

No matter what you do and what plan you want to pursue in your life, it is of utmost importance that the things should be done persistently. Persistence is the fact of continuing in an opinion or course of action in spite of difficulty or opposition. Thus, the quality of carrying out things with great care, concentration and commitment is one of the greatest strengths to be a good cause for a person to achieve success in all the aspects of life.

Being a great substitute for talent, persistence is a key success factor of something desired or intended. If a person is deficient or has not cultivated the quality of persistence, it is not only difficult for him or her, but almost impossible to get what he or she wants in life. The more it’s displayed, the greater are the chances to achieve success. If you want to achieve success in your life, now is the time to make an unconditional commitment. You need to consider the importance of persistence in achieving your hopes and dreams.

Persistence is the quality that allows someone to continue doing something or trying to do something even though it is difficult or opposed by other people. There are times in life when you get discouraged or are discouraged by others forming negative thoughts or considering negative results. It may happen sometimes due to the fear of unknown. But if you have cultivated the habit of making persistent efforts, it will help you reach you goal.  Remember that persistence is so important that without it, talent and genius do not mean much. It is important that one should be persistent in addition to being talented or genius if one is willing to achieve success in life.

Persistence can change failure in to extraordinary achievement. It makes the impossible possible and so it makes success possible. Having this quality also means having patience.  When these qualities are combined with passion, such as, persistence, patience and passion, a person can indeed do magic making impressive achievements in life.

Persistence has been one of the attributes of successful people. Even though they faced difficulties and challenges, but they did not quit and neither did they lose their hope and courage due to misfortunes and hardships. They continued the journey to success putting their sincere and persistent efforts. To them failure was not a hindrance, but an opportunity to bring more improvements in their approach. It is worth mentioning what has been said by Edward Eggleston, “Persistent people begin their success where others end in failure.”

Remember that “Winners are not those who never Fail but those who never quit.”
