Life is full of positive and negative events all affecting who we become and how we interact with others. Adversity is an element of life everyone faces. What differentiates proactive leaders and reactive imitators is a muscle that‘s flexed when destructive events occur: perseverance. This is the age-old act of pursuing accomplishments and achievement with resiliency and determination through trials and tribulation. It is to be steadfast.
“Life is not easy for any of us. But what of that? We must have perseverance and above all confidence in ourselves. We must believe that we are gifted for something and that this thing must be attained.” – Marie Curie
