Perseverance, A Key To Success

No matter what business you are in, there is one quality you will need to develop, and that is Perseverance.

Depending on who you talk to there are wildly different opinions regarding the keys to a successful business.

In my opinion personal development is right at the top of the list. With all of the ups and downs your business can throw at you, getting your mind in the right place is of extreme importance. One theme that constantly comes to mind for me is perseverance. defines perseverance as “steady persistence in a course of action, a purpose, a state, etc., especially in spite of difficulties, obstacles, or discouragement.”

Pretty much anyone in business for more than about a week understands that it is easy to get discouraged, which is why developing big goals and pursuing them with all your heart is so important. I compiled a few quotes for you to refer to when you are feeling discouraged with your progress. If you have any you would like to share, just add them in the comments.
Here are some great quotes about perseverance from
My favorite is the one from Newt…

Don’t be afraid to give your best to what seemingly are small jobs. Every time you conquer one it makes you that much stronger. If you do the little jobs well, the big ones will tend to take care of themselves.

Dale Carnegie

To Your Success,
