Why Persistence Is Important

persistenceWe’ve heard it time and time again nev­er give up on your dream. If you look at the wheels of a vehi­cle it doesn’t start and stop abrupt­ly if it did we would nev­er arrive at our des­ti­na­tion, the wheels begin to turn until they reach a high speed and they keep turn­ing con­tin­u­ous­ly until they reach the des­ti­na­tion. In order to get any trac­tion on the road of life, you have to exer­cise persistence,just as the wheels per­sis­tent­ly hit the pave­ment to get you where you want to go. You may have to change your route but your des­ti­na­tion remains the same.

Many times we give up on some­thing with­out try­ing hard enough you have to con­stant and dis­ci­plined I was watch­ing a moti­va­tion­al video the oth­er day where the renowned actor Den­zel Wash­ing­ton was talk­ing about his rules for suc­cess.

What Den­zel Wash­ing­ton says in the video is that if you want some­thing in life you have to exer­cise dis­ci­pline and con­sis­ten­cy it is a pow­er­ful video I will leave a link at the end of this blog post. There are and there have been many suc­cess­ful actors, musi­cians artists who have these two qual­i­ties in com­mon. Dis­ci­pline and con­sis­ten­cy go hand in hand, con­sis­ten­cy is just anoth­er way of say­ing Per­sis­tence.

Dis­ci­pline allows you to avoid dis­trac­tions. We strug­gle with dis­trac­tions our whole lives. If you could go to the end of your life and look back to see how much time you wast­ed on video games, movies or doing all around idle things that devi­at­ed you from your pur­pose, how long would it add up to? I have cal­cu­lat­ed that if you were to spend four hours per day every day play­ing video games over a peri­od of eighty years you would, in fact, be spend­ing thir­teen years of your life play­ing video games! now is that any way to spend your life?

Consistency and Persistence

Con­sis­ten­cy builds con­fi­dence in your­self. Also there is pow­er in rep­e­ti­tion, this can also be observed in the say­ing prac­tice makes per­fect. Peo­ple who try some­thing then give up, set them­selves up for fail­ure. More­over, one could argue that they have failed them­selves.

Con­sis­ten­cy yields mas­tery, any great per­son or leader who has attained a high sta­tus in life has done it through con­sis­tent­ly going at it. Con­stant­ly improv­ing, chip­ping away at them­selves until they have sculpt­ed the per­son that they want­ed to become.

When you go behind the scenes and take a look at the hard work and com­mit­ment that these indi­vid­u­als go through it is no won­der they have achieved great­ness, you must know that the human brain rec­og­nizes that things that are repeat­ed are impor­tant and it, there­fore, makes it a pri­or­i­ty to remem­ber these things and over time allows us to get bet­ter at them.

Don’t give up now be per­sis­tent in your life, it will be worth it in the end. Leave a com­ment below and let me know was there a time in your life where you see Per­sis­tence tak­ing effect? Enjoy your day and remem­ber to per­sist and stay moti­vat­ed.
