How To Use Perseverance To Build A Better Life

Oct 30, 2007
The term "Perseverance" means a steady effort during the performance of particular action or purpose in spite of any difficulty or discouragement. This is a very important quality which can change one's life. If one has decided to do something, then putting a continuous effort is very important. It refers to this continuity in performance. Performance will not necessarily mean the successful completion of the task. But it suggests the uninterrupted stream of action in spite of any failure or obstacle.

Use of Perseverance to lead towards a better life

One can learn many things when one tries to maintain perseverance. One can learn to accomplish a task without diverting oneself from the main aim. One can achieve the success despite of the ever multiplying difficulties when one is heading towards progress. One gets the necessary strength to march towards the set goal. Getting out of the embarrassments becomes easier when perseverance is practiced. Extreme emotions, such as extreme anger, over excitement and over enthusiasm can be controlled. A balanced thinking helps in achieving the goals.

There are many other factors that can become helpful when perseverance is attained. One can verify and make firm decisions. This helps in believing in oneself and also to gain confidence. One should not lose hopes if the actions are not getting converted into success. Practicing perseverance can help to develop patience.

Opting perseverance is not a very difficult thing. Take the example of small kids. Ever since they start the movement of their hands and legs, they start performing many actions. If they start on some difficult task such as putting the lid on a box, they won't give up until the lid is put on its place. During this unstoppable action they will keep aside their hunger, thirst and other diversions. Even though they become successful in this task at a moment, they keep doing the same for some more time. This helps them to practice the task, so that next time they won't find it difficult to put on a lid on the box. This whole process is termed as "Perseverance".

Many great people have achieved success in their lives. Actually the actions they did were not different that what other people do. The only difference between them and other people is that, these great achievers performed their actions with perseverance. They kept on heading towards their aim with patience and consistency. As said, "Failure is the path of least persistence", one can change the life with the perseverance behavior.

Things that should be followed to achieve Perseverance

Try to finish the task you start. Don't show frustration when something starts bothering. Instead wait patiently till the thing that is bothering gets over. If some method or way to perform something doesn't work, one should keep trying again. Control the anger. Try to like the task that is generally kept aside due to disliking. Not giving up on anything is the key to get success. Try harder.

All these actions help to gain perseverance and achieve success in life.
