Coach Vince Lombardi said, “It’s not whether  you get knocked down, but whether you get back up.” The definition of perseverance is the continued effort to do or achieve something despite difficulties, failure, or opposition.

Setting goals like I did to get through cancer is a first step.  When you do this, at those times when you are discouraged or feel like giving up you have something to move toward.  Perseverance is in your mind.  When your situation looks bleak remember that it is temporary.

You must consistently  proclaim and visualize what you are trying to achieve as though it were reality.  Then, when you feel like giving up, you can train your mind to go to what you are trying to achieve.   Perseverance becomes a habit.  It becomes a mental drive to look beyond what is right in front of you.

Perseverance is a life choice.  Sometimes the first step is saying to yourself, “I will persevere , in spite of what is happening.”

Perseverance is about keeping on with something even when you don’t see immediate results.  It comes from having the faith and tenacity to know that the process will produce the results.

Perseverance is often what separates people who accomplish great things form those who don’t.  Some people are willing are willing to do anything to accomplish their goals.  Others fade or give in to discouragement.
