Benjamin Disraeli said; “Through perseverance many people win success out of what seemed destined to be certain failure.”

Do you ever feel like you’re not making much progress, or it’s one step forward and two steps back? Maybe it’s just me, but I have a feeling that most of us feel like that sometimes.

Perseverance is a vital component of success. If you read about successful people, a surprising number of them have had to overcome obstacles and pick themselves up from falling many times before they reach their goal.

Having people around us that encourage and motivate us to keep going is an important strategy in overcoming self-doubt and temporary setbacks. Others can see things from a different perspective and help us to get back on track.
