Perseverance – A Major Key to Success!

Have you ever set a goal or target for yourself and failed to achieve it? Isn’t that a silly question? We all have done that.


We all set targets for ourselves and sometimes fall short of those targets and goals. Why? Sometime you might get frustrated with yourself and think of yourself as a failure. You might just give up and stop trying because you don’t think you can achieve your goal. You might feel like you can never be a success.


That’s not true! Let me assure you, YOU can be a Success!


But back to the question: Why do we miss the targets we set for ourselves? Why do we fall short of our goals? Usually, it’s not because of lack of ability. It’s not because of lack of skill. If we lack the skill, we can either develop that skill or find someone who has the skill to assist us.


“I do not think that there is any other quality so essential to success of any kind as the quality of perseverance. It overcomes almost everything, even nature.” ~ John D. Rockefeller ~


Perseverance – the missing ingredient!


So why do we fall short of our success goals? One of the major underlying reasons is lack of Perseverance! Perseverance is an essential ingredient for success in your personal life, in your business and in every area of success.


Success is not achieved overnight! There are no real get-rich-fast successes in the typical real world. Success takes work and time to build, no matter what area you are working in to achieve success. But success can be achieved.

Perseverance involves having the vision of your dream and not taking your eyes off your dream. It involves having the tenacity and resolve to never quit until you reach your dream.


Never Give In!



Here’s to our Success!

The starting point of all achievement is desire

“The starting point of all achievement is desire.” Napoleon Hill

Many success coaches emphasize that a major key to success is to have a great desire to succeed. As Napoleon Hill put it, “the starting point of all achievement is desire.”


Achieving success in whatever area one is working toward requires work. Often a lot of work! It requires time, often much time. Without a strong desire to keep one motivated and focused, a person will soon lose interest and drift back into the old habits that put them where they were before.


Napoleon Hill is famous for also saying “Whatever the mind can conceive and believe, it can achieve.” A person must conceive or the achievement or goal. He then must believe that he can achieve it. In other words he must desire it and have faith that he can achieve it. It takes desire as an integral part of the belief.


Many other success coaches tell us that we must have a clear vision or dream that we keep in strong focus. This is all a part of the desire to achieve. We must have a clear vision, a clear dream of what we want to achieve and work it into a strong desire to achieve it. We need to set goals to achieve those dreams. Jim Rohn said that goals are like magnets, pulling you through the hard times to your dream. We need clear, big dreams to have to strong pull needed to keep us going even when we want to give up.


Others use the term “reason” for vision or dream. Some say that you need to have a big enough reason to motivate you to achieve success. Having a big enough reason gives you the desire needed to endure the time and work needed to reach your goals. This is all a part of the desire Napoleon Hill is talking about which is the starting point for all achievement.

So if you are serious about succeeding then, work on your desire! Work on your why; your reason. Have a clear, vision or dream to focus on.

Remember, you need a strong desire or dream to pull you along to achieve your success.


Here’s to your Success!
