Week – #15 Persistence

creativemindBeginning this week we select a virtue and look for it all week.  When I was growing up with five siblings the road trips were frequent and long.  They were always an hour to days traveling and one way to pass the time without fighting was playing games that kept us occupied.  Someone would begin asking everyone to look for a white horse for instance.  The first one to see the white horse was the person who selected the next item.  

This is the advanced version of the game. It goes all week and this week I am looking for persistence. I started seeing it as soon as I selected it. Everyone is persistent in some ways.  What we focus on is what grows and where the energy flows, they say.  The persistent view of a glass half-empty and a persistent noticing what is wrong or missing fills conversations, Facebook, Twitter and the list is endless.

Persistence, tenacity and continuing effort all seem to align.  They may consistencylook much like pestering, a version of insanity when it is merely repetition doing the same thing repeatedly.  Persisting with a goal, using the gap between now, and it achieved as a gage may be a different way to persist.  This will be an interesting week looking for persistence.

  1. This is a timely post for me at a personal and professional level. Being a self-employed individual I find the two are much more intertwined than every before… But, the next 4 weeks I am looking for persistence not only in others, but myself to make some clear headway in my business, increased clients, leads, etc; but also persistence personally to be patient as I make a big move to a new city. Thanks again for this!!!

  3. Seems like the dilemma is the boundary between persistence and insanity. It is true though that what you are looking for is what you will frequently see, but when you’re not looking for it, you often miss it.

  4. Hello Michael! One of my goals for 2014 is to take consistent action with everything I do! I guess this is the same a persistence HUH? Great article my friend!! Thanks for sharing Chery :))

  5. Hello Michael,… Lately I’m in the mode of “DO until DONE” … Persistence means that you are continually doing what you love doing. Keep on keeping on. No quit notice. To get a good satisfactory goals and achievements in your life, you need to be persistent in what you have passion doing.
