Today’s ‘Live Better With Willie Jolley’ Tip: Persistence vs. Perseverance

Today’s ‘Live Better’ tip for Success is focused on helping you overcome this challenging economy. It is taken from my new book, Turn Your Setbacks Into Greenbacks. Get a copy today…you’ll be glad you did!

We have been talking about the fact that in order to turn your setbacks into comebacks, and eventually into greenbacks, it is essential to be persistent and have perseverance. Most people think that they are the same thing, but they are quite different. Persistence is an action where you continue to work on your goal in an obstinate, repetitive manner. Perseverance is an attitude where you decide that you will not give up. A belief that somehow-some way, you will eventually succeed. Persistence is when you decide to keep hitting, keep fighting and keep working on your goal until you achieve it. Thomas Edison was persistent; he failed more than a thousand times in his quest to invent a light bulb, yet he kept trying new ways to achieve the goal, and eventually he achieved his goal. I like to say that ‘‘persistence breaks down resistance!’’
