So long as you are moving toward a worthy goal in an area that matches your native abilities and interest, perseverance is a quality you’re going to need to move closer to your potential.
In fact, the greater the goal, the longer it will take, and the more you’re going to need to stick to it in times of difficulty or confusion when you want to quit.
This is something I know well. Not quitting is my thing. I just don’t quit. And because I don’t quit, I get better and better – outlasting my competition long after they lost interest or are gone for whatever reason.
All you have to do to not quit is to keep going.
