8 – Perseverance, Persistence and Determination


Perseverance is one characteristic shared by all successful people throughout history. Perseverance is true essence of success.

Persistence – Act of holding firmly and steadfastly to a purpose, state, goal or undertaking despite obstacle, warning or setbacks.

Determination – Quality of mind which reaches definite conclusions, resoluteness

Perseverance – Persistent determination

Persistence is not insanity. Giving up your purpose or goal due to obstacles – that’s insanity.

The key to determination is word “decision”. You must decide what you want before you can get it. Determination takes great self-confidence and decisiveness. You must be willing to completely disregard all alternatives to your decision and set it clear in your mind that you must and you will.

Perseverance is great word that is defined by persistent determination.
