My Persistence Pays Off

persistence

Perseverance is a choice I make each day. I succeed because I am willing to persist. Fast results may feel nice, but major achievements are worth working for. I take satisfaction in finishing what I start. My goals are too important for me to abandon them. My time is too precious for me to waste. 

I remember my motivation. I think about the purpose behind my activities. When I am committed to a project, I want to make the most of my abilities. 

I keep things in perspective. I stay on track regardless of how I am feeling. 

I welcome setbacks as an opportunity to learn. I make good use of each experience. I evaluate my progress and adjust my plans as needed. 

I think about how my actions affect others. I am reliable. I show others that they can trust me not to quit when the going gets rough. 

I search for inspiration. I watch how my personal role models refuse to give up. I read about historical figures who accomplished great things because of their determination. I tell myself that if they can do it, so can I. 

I encourage myself with positive self-talk. 

I take some time off. I can travel further if I rest when I am tired. A strategic break helps me to return to my tasks with more energy and enthusiasm. 

Today, I keep on trying. I do what it takes to reach my goals. 

Self-Reflection Questions: 

  1. What is the relationship between success and perseverance?
  2. How does my faith help me to persevere?
  3. What is one important thing I would have missed out on if I quit too soon?
