You need power (strength) to persevere when the going gets tough. Merriam-Webster’s dictionary defines persevere as to continue doing something or trying to do something even though it is difficult.

Anything worth having in life will be difficult. If it’s easy and anybody could attain it, most likely it is not worth having. You got to keep on keeping on until you reach your goal.

It’s not easy to persevere, especially if you have failed in the past. There are many great people who failed too.

Michael Jordan stated “I’ve missed more than 9000 shots in my career. I’ve lost almost 300 games. 26 times, I’ve been trusted to take the game winning shot and missed. I’ve failed over and over again in my life. And that is why I succeed.”

What if Michael Jordan gave up on his goals? We would have never known what a great player he is. And for all those who love buying his shoes, you would have not been able to buy and wear them had he not persevered when he failed.

I have failed before too, before I met my husband, I went through several failed relationships. I did not let negative comments or opinions from people keep me from believing that I would eventually attract the right man.

In the past, I had people who would condemn me when I did not stay in wrong relationships like them. I knew God had so much better for me, that is why I refused to build a future with someone who was not in alignment for what I wanted for my future.

The problem with many women is they are afraid to be alone. Some people have the mentality that a broke down man is better than no man. This is far from the truth and you can do well by yourself while you wait to attract the right man.

You need to be patient and don’t let negative, fear-filled comments from other people make you rush or stay in a relationship that is not meant to be.

Let’s face it! It take power to persevere. You cannot give up on your goals. You can overcome anything!  Whether it is to attract the right man, find a new job, buy a house, save money, be debt free, lose weight, etc. You are going to need to persevere if you want to reach your goals.
