Persistence – King Tiger Martial Arts Chesapeake
Persistence is the ability to keep working toward a goal, no matter what. It can be difficult to push through things like injuries and other physical obstacles, but sometimes, the harder obstacles are all in our heads. Fear, disappointment, or even just plain laziness are often the biggest roadblocks we face. Sven Eriksson, a former soccer player, once said “The greatest barrier to success is the fear of failure.” Too often, being afraid to fail keeps people from trying something new or difficult, but, for those who are willing to push that fear aside, great things are possible.
Here are some examples of great things that happened because people pushed through their failure:
- NASA experienced 20 failures out of its first 28 attempts to send a rocket into space.
- Walt Disney went bankrupt after failing at several businesses. He was even fired from a newspaper for lacking imagination.
- It took Thomas Edison 1,000 attempts before inventing the light bulb.
- Dr. Seuss’s first book was rejected by 27 publishers before it was finally accepted.
