10 Amazing Life Lessons #2
Perseverance is Priceless.
Perseverance is defined as steadfastness in doing something despite difficulty or delay in achieving success.
Some of us call that stick-to-iteveness shrug. No matter how you say it it all means you keep going until you reach the end or achieve the desired result.
Think about it: if Jonas Salk hadn’t persevered we wouldn’t have the Salk Vaccine for Polio. We wouldn’t have Penicillin, Aspirin, antihistamines and anti-inflammatories. We wouldn’t have electricity either although some days I wonder if not having electricity would be such a bad thing when there are things I need to be doing but I’ve been sucked into something.
I’m one of the biggest procrastinators so me writing about perseverance is a lot harder than I thought it would be, goooooooooo figure!
If you really think about it all those priceless ‘things’ we think we want are really only things, objects, things we could easily do without.
What is truly priceless is the intangible.
Every single item in that list is intangible. We can’t touch it or feel it but we most certainly can attain every single one of them if we ‘persevere’ in our lives and get get out there and, as Nike says, Just Do It!
