Perseverance means persistence in doing something despite difficulty or delay in achieving a goal. To develop the quality one requires regular practice of it. Only a patient person with strong determination can achieve his goal by perseverance. When a child learns to stand up and tries to walk, he is found to fall down again and again. But at one time he succeeds in walking. Similarly, a man having perseverance can succeed in life in spite of his repeated failures. A persevering person has tremendous self-confidence, indomitable determination, and a natural urge towards hard labor which paves his way to success. In spite of having intelligence and genius, he can hardly prosper in life if he is averse to diligence. In this world, all the great things have been possible only by perseverance. Shakespeare did not compose his voluminous works just in a day. He had to work hard days and nights with tremendous perseverance. In every sphere of life perseverance is the root of success and glory. Therefore, perseverance must be practiced from the very childhood so that this noble habit becomes a part and parcel of one’s life
