How To Develop Perseverance?

Dec 24, 2007
Perseverance is one of the several qualities that can help man in achieving anything and everything he wants. Perseverance is the virtue by which we humans keep striving to achieve a particular goal. Perseverance generally comes to the fore when we strive to realize a goal, complete a task or meet targets by overcoming obstacles or difficulties.

Developing perseverance enables us to improve and enhance our capabilities. Being able to achieve goals further leads to self growth and self improvement as a result of which an individual is transformed into a more competent being. Thus to achieve success in any endeavor that you might take up, it would be necessary to develop perseverance. Developing perseverance within oneself is not a difficult task. However one needs to be keen enough and put in some effort.

Developing Perseverance through Faith in Oneself :-

Faith in oneself and the belief that one can meet a certain goal is one of the most efficient ways in which perseverance can be developed. According to psychologists perseverance and belief in oneself go hand in hand. If one believes that one can accomplish a certain goal one will be motivated to achieve it and thus will fight against the odds to achieve it. In other words one will persevere to achieve the goal. On the other hand if one believes that a certain task cannot be accomplished at all one will not have enough motivation and thus, will not persevere to achieve it.

Aspects of developing Perseverance :-

There are various aspects that help in developing perseverance, some of these have been enlisted below:
To develop perseverance, it is important that one knows what it is, that one really wants.

Knowing what obstacles one might have to face in order to achieve the goal can also prove to be of great help. Once one has gained an understanding of what obstacles one would have to overcome, one can be mentally prepared for it.

In order to develop perseverance within oneself, one needs to acquire some moral force and support. This support can come from one's family, friend or significant others.

Exercising self control is one of the important aspects needed for developing perseverance. Exercising self control also helps prevent distraction and thus, enables one to focus on the
goal in a better manner.

Apart from this it is important that one learns from one's failures and does not get disheartened due to the difficult situations that one might come across. Psychologists recommend that people trying to develop perseverance must think positively.

Besides all this one could also make use of several practical exercises that have been designed to help people develop perseverance. If one wishes to, one could also develop perseverance through self help techniques. These basically involve monitoring oneself, and making a conscious effort to develop the virtue of perseverance within oneself. It is thus clear that anyone who lacks perseverance can develop it, with just a minimal amount of effort.
