If someone was to ask,
“What’s the one word to best describe any success you’ve had in your life?”
No need to hesitate – the word would be perseverance.
Adversity is a great teacher!!!
I’m learning to embrace it. Rest assured, it sounds simple, but it sure ain’t easy.
One of many definitions I found of perseverance: “You are never a loser until you quit trying”. Another: “Steady persistence in adhering to a course of action, a belief, or a purpose; steadfastness”.
I received this definition in an e-mail (my favorite)…
Persist no matter what.
Steadfastly hold on to your beliefs and values.
Very consistently keep at it.
Embrace adversity as your teacher.
Refuse to give up.
Enjoy and celebrate every tiny bit of progress!
