Counselor's Hub: Perseverance
08 May
  • Counselor's Hub: Perseverance

The temptation to give up is a common one, and nobody is exempt. Failure isn't something many of us can handle but reminding ourselves that each failure is a stepping stone to success if we just continue. Reminding yourself that loss of hope, frustration is temporary might just compel you to pick yourself up and move forward.

The skill and strength of perseverance is an important lesson to learn and teach our children. They learn by watching us struggle and ultimately succeeding by ‘never giving up.” 

Please enjoy some motivation quotes that encompass the spirit of perseverance from around the world. 

The man who moves a mountain begins by carrying away small stones.

--Confucius (551-479 BC), philosopher

It does not matter how slowly you go so long as you do not stop.

--Confucius (551-479 BC), philosopher

Success is the sum of small efforts, repeated day in and day out.

--Robert Collier (1885-1950), American self-help author

Fall seven times and stand up eight.

--Japanese Proverb

Perseverance doesn't always roar. Sometimes perseverance is the quiet voice at the end of the day saying 'I will try again tomorrow.’
