What mentors, peers or leaders come to your mind who have persevered and initiated positive change? Perhaps you find you admire them because they carried out a plan—even when the going got tough. Many of us have an appreciation for mentors and leaders because they have encouraged us to persevere.
It takes perseverance to avoid making assumptions and achieve what we want in relationships, career and life success. We can consider how assumptions can sometimes cause misunderstandings, confusion and undue stress—which can make us feel discouraged and keep us from reaching our goals or strengthening relationships.
I had a conversation with a friend of mine about perseverance. Over time, it can either be more challenging or easier to continue our goals with perseverance based on past experiences. Negative experiences may limit the amount of perseverance within; however, if we choose to learn the lesson from a challenging experience then we will be better equipped to take on our future goals.
As a Life Empowerment Coach, I have shared with clients, that when striving for a new goal, one of the most challenging obstacles may be bearing the difficulties calmly and without complaining. Limit assumptions and allow perseverance to inspire you to achieve the results you want. Here are a few tips:
When something starts to bother you, wait as long as you possibly can before giving into frustration or losing your temper. Instead, focus on expressing your feelings in a tactful way. Write about past challenging situations that you overcame in your journal. What were your feelings at the time?
If something does not seem to be working properly, give it another try. And another! Don't give up so easily. Adopt the motto “Always finish what you start” and allow this to motivate you to completion.
Do you always get annoyed or lose your patience with a specific person? Take a moment to try to understand the person’s behavior. Use this as an opportunity to work through a challenge instead of trying to avoid or escape it.
Through commitment, hard work, patience and perseverance, you can achieve great things!
