“Sometimes even to live is an act of courage”. – SenecaPerseverance, we had listen to this word many times, in school, in any sport practice, even in our house. But what does it really mean? Perseverance according to Merriam Webster is to continue effort to do or achieve something despite difficulties, failure or opposition. Many people can summarize these word as “no giving up” The word perseverance is a such a powerful word with great meaning.
This word should be basic in everyone’s life, for me this word has a lot of meaning. Let me go back to November 2017, few days ago it was the “Torneo de la Amistad” in Puebla. It was the first game against Chihuahua, one of the strongest teams in the tournament. At the beginning we were scared, nervous, but still we decided to give everything in the field, and we did.
In the first period we were losing 2-0, I first thought that it was the end, we were going to lose, and I wasn’t the only one thinking this. But something made us change our mind, courage, hope, and we decided to don’t give up, to keep playing with all our strength. And that really helped us, we were perseverant and just in 10 minutes we were 2-2, it was the greatest feeling I had in years, then in the last minute of the game we score a goal, 3-2 we won, we scored the goal and the game ended, and we were losing, but we never gave up and stayed perseverant, and this game made us go through semifinals. You may encounter many defeats, but you must not be defeated. In fact, it may be necessary to encounter the defeats, so you can know who you are capable of.All people has this special quality, perseverance.
Sadly, not everyone realize that this is true power. We live in a world full of obstacles that interfere in our lives, and we don’t realize that perseverance can help us, it can pull us through, IS the key of overcoming difficulties. Imagine how the world could change if everyone knew the power of this value, life will radically change. People make their own limits, itLiliana CedilloEssayBachillerato Anåhuacdoesn’t matter if you fail many times, or how slowly you go to reach your goal as long as you don’t stop, it may be difficult but what awaits in the end is bigger than your difficulties.When people fail many times or some by just one time, they give up but this doesn’t matter, try again, fail again, fail better and you will get where you want to be, someday. It’s all about perseverance, about not giving up no matter what. Just because you fail once doesn’t mean you are going to fail always, things will get better, with practice, time, effort. As Roy T.
Bennet said “Don’t give up. Storms make people stronger and never last forever”. Like its normally said, after the storm it comes the rainbow, and if you felt down yesterday, stand up today. Keep fighting for your goals no matter what, because you can do this, but you need to keep in mind that.Now a days in our society I think the value of perseverance is fading, people think that If you fail once, you will fail always, we are very lazy society, we don’t finish what we start, we just give up. We shall persist until we succeed, take another step and if you fail, well take another and yet another, even thought everything is going down, and everything is against you, never give up, be perseverant, everything isn’t done for you. A failure is not always a mistake, it might be helpful, the only mistake here is to stop trying.
Perseverance is failing 9 times and succeeding the 10, this value make obstacles vanish so you can go on. One step at the time will take us were we want to be, but of course it isn’t easy, but is worth it.Perseverance has been really important for all great men and women through history. They had plenty of obstacles, maybe more than the ones you have, but they wanted to reach they goal, and no matter what they push themselves to reach it. No real goal can be achieved and consolidated without perseverance which is literally like a power in our minds that make us complete our taks, it make us determined and enterprising.sayIchillerato Anåhuac”Persevere, nothing in the world can replace persistence. Talent will not, nothing is more common than unsuccessful people with talent.
Genious will not, unrewarded genius is proverbial. Education will not, the world is full of educated human wreckage. Only perseverance and determination are omnipotent” This comment was made about the value of perseverance over any qualities to succeed was by the great businessman and founder of the global chain of franchises McDonald’s, Ray Kroc. This truth remains as true as it has been and will be to achieve any goal we have.
As I said before, unfortunately modern society is largely going against the development of perseverance, and according of some research we can notice that this lack of perseverance in many people is due the impact of the consumer society. Everyone wants to have things easily and immediately, without any effort. With a touch of a button you can have things, information in seconds. Although technology makes our life easier, also develops a lifestyle in which everything comes easy without effort, without planning therefore when this finish or fails people get stressed, give up, they don’t know what to do because they are not used to respond to different obstacles.
Perseverance is a basic principle of success, and the first step to develop perseverance is to define your goal, what do you want to reach. Clear goals lead to commitment and this one to the value of perseverance. So, it’s very important to have in mind that its necessary a clear goal because when you don’t have one, there is no motivation, and no motivation will make you quickly abandon the path when it gets difficult. One example is when many students drop out of school prematurely because it wasn’t what they expected, and the root cause was not defined exactly what they wanted to achieve.
