Stay Persistent

By Tyler Tompson-


Persistence is defined as the “firm or obstinate continuance in a course of action in spite of difficulty or opposition”. In other words, to press on and maintain action when things get tough; to continue your current course when things become too hard. It is very easy to become discouraged about something when it is extremely difficult (we have all been there), but it is important to understand that being persistent and not quitting or giving up can really lead to something greater than you could’ve ever imagined.


In my personal experiences, people give up too soon because they expect the way to be easy from start to finish. They are surprised when something turns out to be much harder than they thought it would, and they quickly give up. It’s like when Coach Wolforth talks about consistency and committing to change every day, “It’s easy to do, but it’s also easy NOT to do”.


John Wooden (arguably the greatest college basketball coach of all time) didn’t win his first National Title until his 16th season at UCLA. He went on to win 10 total during his tenure as the head coach.


Starbucks coffee didn’t open their 5th location until 13 years into their history. Now they are one of the world’s leading coffeehouse chains with roughly 30,000 locations worldwide and an approximate net worth of $30 billion USD.


Lastly, Sam Walton, founder of Walmart and Sam’s Club, didn’t open his 2nd store until 7 years after starting the company. Walmart has grown to be, at one point, the world’s largest corporation by revenue.


You will be amazed by what you can accomplish if you stay persistent and push on. Nobody said it was going to be easy, so expect a hard route and not an easy one. Instead of trying to tackle a large goal, break it up into smaller pieces – that way you can be mentally prepared when you encounter something extremely difficult.
