Persistence means "Refusing to give up or let go!"
Perseverance relates to how long or how short a period of time one refuses to give up or let go, which means adhering to their course of action. It is possible to be persistent, yet lack perseverance. Why? Because perseverance requires patience, which is the ability or willingness to tolerate delay.
As the old saying goes, "Rome wasn't built in a day", and the same holds true for building any type of business or wealth.
The truth here is this: If you want to be successful, are committed to being successful, and know how to be successful, success is simply a byproduct. But it takes a plan of action and follow through on that plan.
The Lord is my Banker
I shall not fail,
He makes me to lie down in gold mines;
He gives me the combination of His Hills,
He restores my credit;
He shows me how to avoid lawsuits for His Names sake.
Yes, though I walk in the very shadow of debt
I will fear no evil, for He is with me.
His silver and His Gold, they rescue me.
He prepares a way for me in the presence
Of the collectors,
He fills my barrels with oil;
My measure runs over.
Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me
All the days of my life,
And I will do business in the Name of the Lord.
(23rd Psalm - 21st Century)
There is no substitute for persistence! Be persistent no mater how slowly you may have to move in the beginning. Persistence brings with it success. Be realistic with your goals and action plans. Follow through with what you have started and you're bound to get to your destination.
Remember this: "HIMPOSSIBLE." Impossible for me, but with "HIMPOSSIBLE."
