Strategies to help you achieve any goal #2

Practice Persistence

PERSISTENCE is the one common attribute high achievers share above anything else?. They simply refuse to give up until they reach their goal. It doesn’t matter what obstacles they encounter, they just keep trying.

But, in trying, they learn.

If one thing doesn’t work, they make a minor adjustment and try again. Look at the goal from a different perspective.

A scientist, when challenged about the number of failures he had in his experiment responded: “No, I just found another way to not do it. I’m getting closer to finding the right way.” The same happens in the rest of the world, Screenwriter Craig Borten, who wrote the screenplay for Dallas Buyers Club in 1992, struggled for 20 years to get his script turned into a movie. It became a huge success and won the Oscar for best original screenplay.

If you are struggling, choose to stay in the race. Practice Persistence!
