Many times during the couse of life, we strive for something and fail. We normally don't give up after one disappointment but after many we become very discouraged and usually give up. How many people continue to try and try those twenty times mentioned above? How many people have the characteristic of true perserver- ence? Certainly, being perserver- ent gives a person something to live for. The more one fails at something, the more determined one becomes for success the next time. When the success does happen, then one has a sense of real accomplishment. All struggles Involved with the accomplishment were worth it.
