“Be like a postage stamp, stick to one thing until you get there.”
Persistence is the core capability you must possess if you expect to achieve anything of significance. There is rarely an instance when you can avoid challenges that require you to forge ahead despite uncertainty, fear, exhaustion, and even pain. With the assumption that you have carefully and intentionally chosen worthwhile and meaningful goals, you’ll need to fortify yourself to enable the level of persistence necessary to eventually push through challenges. You can fortify yourself by constant learning, physical exercise, developing relationships with people you can call upon for help when needed, and surrounding yourself with positive influencers (what you read, who you associate with, and the experiences you choose). With all that in mind, forge ahead! Stick to your path and reap the rewards that only persistence can provide.
