When you think about the word perseverance, I want you to get in your mind the idea that you are following through until completion. Doing whatever it takes – up, under, around – until you achieve the goal you’ve set for yourself.

Some people’s perseverance muscle starts out very small. At the sign of the first problem or challenge, they give up. Sometimes it is hard for people to follow through and complete goals. Perseverance can be a difficult quality to learn if you don’t know where to start.
So ask yourself this, what has to happen in order for you to gain more perseverance? So that you don’t stop dead in your tracks when things don’t go your way, you don’t stop when things don’t seem ‘right’ for you. Instead, you just keep moving forward towards your goal.
In many cases, I’ve found the reason is self-confidence. You can build your self- confidence* starting today in 3 easy steps.
- Knowledge – You have access to more resources than our ancestors ever dreamed. Treat yourself to a good E-book reader and keep it with you wherever you go. Follow Facebook Groups and the Blogs of people who are where to want to be. Finding a mentor can be extremely rewarding. My mentor, Alan Brown, has been one of the biggest influences on my success.
- Skills – There are a number of great online training sites available in almost every field – try them out and find the right one for you. More and more companies are using independent contractors and did you know that many of them are having trouble finding rock solid people to do even basic work? Start with small projects and work your way up!
- Certainty Level – As your knowledge and skills continue to grow, so will your certainly level, which will empower you to look for the next challenge. Always remember to celebrate your wins – no matter how small – so that you are continually training your brain to make this process a powerful thought pattern.

When you have self-confidence that is built on your knowledge, skills, and your certainty level that you can achieve a goal, you will take more action to that goal no matter what. You will no longer take ‘no’ for an answer. You won’t allow any of the stumbling blocks or roadblocks that seem to be in front of you to stop you.
And when you develop that perseverance muscle, you will find that everything will start to open up for you, everything starts to align, and what you see around you are people on the side of the road that gave up.
As you notice more and more people who gave up, it’ll give you more energy, more focus, and even more confidence and certainty that you can persevere and achieve every one of your goals.
