To Persevere


per·se·vere
/pərsəˈvir/
verb
to persist in anything undertaken; maintain a purpose in spite of difficulty, obstacles, or discouragement; continue steadfastly.

Perseverance is the dedication and motivation to keep on going and keep taking one step after the other despite what else may be going on in your life or standing in your way. Perseverance is the one most powerful thing we have against giving up and letting the struggles win. When everything is weighing on our shoulders, and when disappointment after disappointment plague us, all we can do is keep going. The power we have is to get up in the morning, put on clothes and keep on going. Our ability to persevere is the difference between struggling and failing.
