Perseverance: When You Master this Tool, Your Goal Setting Success will Soar

By Colin Dunbar

“Life is not easy for any of us. We must have perseverance and above all confidence in ourselves. We must believe that we are gifted for something and that this thing must be attained.” – Marie Curie

Perseverance is not rocket science. You can master this goal setting tool, with just a little thinking and concentration. Think about the thing you want to do, focus your efforts on the smaller steps and you will be amazed at what you can achieve.

In real terms, perseverance is a matter of doing something step-by-step. When we have confidence in what we do, perseverance can become a habit. And it is a good habit worth having.

When you consider a world class athlete, perseverance is essential in his or her performance.

As Madam Curie said, “life is not easy”, but life is here to be lived, and when we use the right tools, it can be exciting. Using this quote as a daily affirmation is an excellent goal setting tool.

When we “believe that we are gifted for something”, as Curie said, our energy levels rise astronomically. When you attain success at the smaller things, your level of confidence rises proportionally.

The dictionary defines perseverance as “maintain effort”. Thus perseverance is nothing more than taking it step-by-step. Even the smallest steps will result in success.

Take it one step at a time, and you will be amazed at what you can achieve.

Make it your goal to…

Identify what you are passionate about. When you know what your passion is, you will find the energy to develop perseverance. And when you become tired, take time out – take a break – you will find you become recharged.

    Muneeb- Thanks for mentioning that “good luck alone is not enough in the long run”. I hate to say it, but I have always been someone who lucked out a lot. But I believe now, that as I get closer to my goals, the luck has run out. Opportunities now are going to people who have persevered the most. I am learning quickly…

    Lori: great point, that a habit (which is day to day investment) yields the result. Its not just an intermittent feeling.
