Perseverance “It’s not that I’m so smart, it’s just that I stay with problems longer,” Albert Einstein once said. I’m writing this essay to show people how perseverance applies to personal success. Perseverance deals with maintaining a course of action, purpose, and being               patient.
Maintaining a course of action is my first way of showing perseverance. If you keep working to get better, then you will gradually work your way up. I have played baseball since I was four. Each year I would work harder and I started to get better. You’ve got to believe to               achieve. So, maintaining a course of action shows you how to have perseverance.
Fighting for a purpose shows a great deal of perseverance. Look at people like Martin Luther King and Susan B. Anthony. They showed perseverance to fight for freedom and their thoughts to be heard. They might not have gotten their ideas heard the first time, and for some, many after that. They kept working at it though. Now, there is no more segregation and there are women’s rights.
My final way to show perseverance, is to be patient. Things will not always go your way and just come easy to you. You’ve got to work and strive to be better. If you don’t study for a test, until the night before, then you won’t do as well as someone who has been studying every night. Good things happen to those that wait. If you get in too much of a hurry, you will rush your life away. So being patient is a good way to show               perseverance.
Showing perseverance means maintaining a course of action, purpose, and showing patience. If you work to be better, then you can. All I’m trying to say is don’t just go along in life without a real purpose for anything, stand up and persevere to be better.
