Perseverance and Success: Essential to Reaching Your Goals

By Colin Dunbar

"Most of the important things in the world have been accomplished by people who have kept on trying when there seemed to be no hope at all." - Dale Carnegie

I'll venture to say that perseverance is one of the most valuable qualities you have to obtain success in any field. And the really great thing about perseverance is that you don't need a university degree, or any complex training to make use if this tool. You HAVE the requirements to reach success using this tool.

Perseverance rarely does not result in success. No matter in what area you have goals, if you keep "keep on trying" as Mr Carnegie suggests you will reach success.

In reality, perseverance is something you were born with. Learning to walk, to talk, to write required perseverance. And the result was success.

It's worthwhile to consider that you can be active, but not move forward. When you don't move forward, you will not reach success. Think back to when you learned to ride a bicycle. For most of us, it took more than one attempt to get the hang of it, but we persevered, and that resulted in success, in that we could ride the bicycle.

The key in developing perseverance means taking small steps, resulting in small achievements, ultimately resulting in success with your objective. Think of building a jigsaw puzzle, one piece is added at a time, and eventually you have the finished picture.

Perseverance often means learning something new, in order to reach your ultimate goal, which is great. Why? Investing in your knowledge is never a waste - you may be able to utilize your new skills and knowledge to enable you to advance in some new area.

If you want to make more sales, you get out and see more prospects, one at a time.

Perseverance will not be without setbacks. The key is to learn from the setback, then continue forward. Do not dwell on it. Take the lesson, and move forward, and on to success.

As Mr Carnegie said, "people who have kept on trying" - that is the key to achieving success in any area you want.
