Monday Morning Motivation – Perseverance

By: Curt Stowers

Sharing Resources to Help You Grow Personally, Professionally & Financially

Sometimes it helps to get a little dose of encouragement—along with a good cup of coffee!—to start the day. Today we discuss perseverance.

Hopefully, the message below will help you get off to a good start for the week.  Please feel free to forward the newsletter on to others that you think would benefit from the content.


Perseverance is one of the most powerful things any individual can possess. Those who lack it give up easily and fall short of their God-given potential. Those who possess it push through any and all barriers and achieve amazing things.

In my opinion, perseverance is synonymous with grit and determination. It is something that is of incredible value. Moreover, it IS something we can and should develop. Unfortunately, like anything else, it takes practice. And in the case of perseverance, that’s rarely a fun thing!

The good news is that life’s constantly throwing us curveballs, so we rarely lack an opportunity to improve in this dimension! We just need to keep the proper perspective/outlook when things don’t go as planned.

That brings us to this week’s question:

  • What can you do to improve your perseverance?

Thanks for sharing a bit of your time with me this Monday morning 

Have a great week!
