Perseverance as “a continued effort to do or achieve something despite difficulties, failure, or oppositions.” Individuals who experience the world in ways other than what is considered or typical will likely face many obstacles along their way through life. They have two choices, they can take a deep breath and meet the challenge, or they can give up. If an individual wants to persevere, they decide to face the challenge even though they know it will be hard. The road to success is a slow and quite precarious journey at times. Perseverance that’s the key to a successful life. If you keep persevering long enough, you will achieve your true potential.
