Perseverance is the key to a great career: It is important that you not only perceive but devotedly work towards your goal
Make sure to establish a routine in your life that gives priority to professional advancement. Write down your goal in life and keep it in your line of vision to motivate yourself
If there is one significant aspect that stands out among the persons who have successful careers, it could very well be their quality of perseverance. It is no secret that one has to keep their efforts directed towards accomplishing their goal in life if they aspire to be successful. This equally applies to the area of career development as well.
You must be wondering as to why a basic concept like perseverance is being given such importance with regard to career development. The proverbial slip between the cup and the lip can actually be due to the lack of perseverance in the analysis of lost opportunities and unsuccessful attempts. I would like to state that this is likely to badly hit you when you feel that you were so close to success but you missed it solely due to your own misgivings.
During several career counselling programmes that I have conducted for college students, I could witness a certain lethargic attitude among many students towards their preparation for job placements. It is so worrisome that they do not realise that their preparation is vital in terms of conditioning their mindset and consolidating their efforts to grasp the opportunity that comes their way, which can only be done through positive perseverance.
Perseverance can be improved by taking the following steps consciously towards achieving your goal:
Treat opportunities as challenges to prove your self-worth. When you work towards proving yourself, you can give your best.
Fear is an obstacle to perseverance. Rationalise your thinking and develop a solid resistance to deny fear the chance to influence your progress.
Convince yourself that your progress starts with your perseverance and be duty-bound to respect that intent with all seriousness.
Think about the big picture of success and life-changing experiences for the perseverance that you have or need to have.
What you perceive is what you achieve. It is important that you not only perceive but devotedly work with perseverance towards success.
