Word Up of the Week: Perseverance

Welcome to the “Word Up” for this week – inspiration and insights on everyday words; exploring the power and meaning behind them.

When words are kind and true, they can change our world” ~ Buddha

Perseverance >

Steadfastness in doing something despite difficulty or delay in achieving success.

It’s easy to come up against bumps in the road and turn back or stop. Keep going. That’s at the heart of perseverance.

  • What are you working on or going for in 2013 and you know you need to persevere?
  • How do you push yourself to keep going – what drives you on?
  • When you think of what’s the worst that can happen if you do persevere, how will you handle that? Then, keep going.

Or put another way:

“Many of life’s failures are people who did not realise how close they were to success when they gave up.”

~ Thomas A. Edison
