“If you are persistent you will get it, if you are consistent, you will keep it.”
Working hard or hardly working? I used to hate hearing people say that. As a #girlboss I do feel like I am always hard at work, but there are certain areas that I know I could push myself a little bit more in. Sometimes I give myself mental breaks only to complain about it later because I get a little too relaxed in my routines. When things don’t go our way the temptation to walk away from it or take a long break is strong. I help myself to stay on track by reminding myself that persistence does pay off in the long run. Below are 3 reasons to help, just in case you needed a little push today.
Successful People Fail
Think of the most successful person you know. They too have had their fair share of failures, yet they would not be where they are today if they didn’t stay persistent. Success isn’t something that happens on your first try, sure most of us would love to get that A+ or that viral blog post of YouTube video that brought us internet fame but a majority of people don’t get that. They get to where they want to be in life by being persistent. This goes hand in hand with consistency.
Knowledge requires persistence
Learning is something that we have to do constantly in order to better ourselves. This goes far beyond the scope of learning a new skill. Look at your past relationships whether this be with a significant other or a family member that you don’t quite get along with. You have to learn how that person behaves and responds, You learn that person’s likes and dislikes. When you are learning something new you have to repeat what you’ve learned so it sticks, meaning you have to find ways to help yourself remember. This newly acquired knowledge isn’t what will set you above the rest, it’s how you use it. Some people learn faster than others but the more you stick with it the more you’ll know.
Repetition Breeds Excellence
Simply put, the more you do something the better you will get at it. When you do something and fail, you’re able to learn what worked and what didn’t. Once you start repeating this process you will become better and better at the task at hand. See how I tied all three points together. *highfive.
Next time you’re not feeling down or just straight up not good enough remember these three tips. I am confident that you can master any skill this way.
