Virtue of the Month


Perseverance is being purposeful and steadfast.  It is sticking to something, staying committed, no matter how long it takes or what obstacles appear to stop you.  A good example is the story of the tortoise and the hare.  Even though the tortoise was slower than the hare, he won the race because he persevered - he didnt let anything stop him or distract him.  He kept on going. 

Signs of success to show you are practicing Perseverance is when you….

  • Think before deciding to commit to someone or something
  • Pace yourself
  • Set goals and stick with them until they are completed
  • Take one step at a time, remaining steady
  • Don't let doubts or tests blow you off course
  • Stand by your friends and loved ones

Affirmation – I have perseverance.  I keep a steady pace in what I choose to do.  I keep on keeping on.  I finish what I start.  I am a loyal and committed friend.
