Perseverance & Hope

Don’t get discouraged; it is often the last key in the bunch that opens the lock

We need perseverance and hope that we will ultimately succeed come what may. This critical factor distinguishes the great from the ordinary. History is full of examples of people who continued to fight until they ultimately succeeded. Mahatma Gandhi did not succeed overnight. Nor did Martin Luther King. Edison did not succeed with the first filament he used. Take the best writers whose books have sold millions of copies world over and read how they succeed. You will know that several publishers rejected their books before someone who published. Read about the best selling short story collection Chicken Soup for the Soul by Jack Canfield and you will be amazed to know that the same was rejected by so many publishers.

We need to try and try again. The easiest thing is to give up.

If you read the life story of great people, you will notice a common denominator among all of them. It is their never give up attitude. It is their killer instinct. It is their ability to stick to their aim in life until they ultimately succeeded. It is their perseverance. Its their enthusiasm to remain motivated when confronted with worst failure. It is their focus despite odds around them.
