First step to success is …. having PERSEVERANCE

“Let me tell you something you already know. The world ain’t all sunshine and rainbows. It’s a very mean and nasty place, and I don’t care how tough you are, it will beat you to your knees and keep you there permanently if you let it. 

You, me, or nobody is gonna hit as hard as life. But it ain’t about how hard you hit. It’s about how hard you can get hit and keep moving forward; how much you can take and keep moving forward. That’s how winning is done! 
Now, if you know what you’re worth, then go out and get what you’re worth. But you gotta be willing to take the hits, and not pointing fingers saying you ain’t where you wanna be because of him, or her, or anybody. Cowards do that and that ain’t you. You’re better than that!…….”
The above sentences are taken from movie Rocky VI
Yup, I love watching Rocky movie over and over again, especially when i had a rough day. Watching Rocky got hit, stand up and hit back the opponent is really a thrilling moment, sort of my wake up call that regardless how bad the situation on that day, you have to stay awake, stand up and fight back .
Life is not all rosy days, it has the up and down … Your idea was stolen, your proposal was rejected, customers got mad at you, you missed your sales target …any kind of situation that drive you down, drain your energy.
However ,…those are just part of life journey, you gotta get back, stand up on your feet again, it is called Perseverance.
Perseverance is commitment, hard work, patience, endurance. It is being able to bear difficulties calmly and without complaint.
 Don’t worry making  mistake, don’t punish yourself too hard, coz if you never made mistake, means you never learn, you’ll never grow up.
“Don’t judge me by my succeses, but judge me on how many times I fell down and get back up again” ~ Nelson Mandela
