It is the being persistent in obtaining one’s goal, and it is the searching for opportunities to overcome every obstacles that we face. Everyone has a different limit to which they can be pushed but attempting to overcome the challenges and obstacles is the key. Even though it seems like the whole world is against you can’t give up.

If at first you don’t succeed, try, try again.” “I think I can; I think I can.” Most people in the world have heard these phrases at some point in his or her life. Both of these quotes can be used to demonstrate the idea of perseverance. The story of “The Little Steam Engine” which is found in The Book Of Virtues is a good example of perseverance. The little steam engine was faced with a problem. It was too hard for him to pull his cars up a hill by himself. Instead of just giving up and quitting, he decided to ask others for help. He came across many obstacles. Even though the other steam engines kept refusing, he kept on asking until he got what he needed. Perseverance is the realization that challenges along the way are only minor detours on the march to success.
