Day 35 (thirty-five) of 365 days

Defining of purpose

Have you ever stopped to ask yourself why? Why do you do what you do? What keeps you doing it day in and day out? What makes it important to you? We can only persevere when our why is strong enough.


You have to really want it, sometimes we don’t want something enough to do the hard work or persevere sufficiently to obtain it.

Self belief

You must truly belief that you have the qualities and skills to achieve your preferred outcome, or that you can acquire them.

Definition of plans

Goal setting is a key aspect of persevering. If you don’t know where you’re going, how can you get there? Even if your plans aren’t perfect, you should have something that you’re loosely aiming for. It provides focus and a level of accountability needed to persevere.


Your perseverance should be based on a firm foundation of knowledge.

Will power

You should possess the ability to delay gratification, resisting short term temptations in order to meet long term goals.


Persistence is the direct result of habit. Our mind absorbs what we feed it. If we repeat acts of courage, and then we will overcome our fears.
