"Persistance" what does it truly mean? It is the act of selecting a desired outcome for yourself and pursuing it, 'until you achieve it.' It requires your ability to be resolute, patient, unshakable, and remaining doggedly on the path to your goals. How badly do you want something? It has to be a relentless pursuit, never giving up, and never giving in. Prepared daily to meet the challenges and obstacles you will encounter, the disappointments and the heights of exuberance, the battles won or lost but steadfast in your belief that you will ultimately achieve that which you desire.
