Virtue of the Fortnight: Persistence

How Do You Practice Persistence?

You practice persistence by committing to someone or something. Choose your commitments wisely and then stick with them. When you commit to a task, pace yourself and be persistent, doing it step by step. Stand by your friends even when they aren’t much fun, or are having a hard time. When trouble or doubts come up, be like a strong ship in a storm. Don’t let yourself become battered or blown off course. Just ride the waves.


I have persistence. I keep a steady pace in what I choose to do. I keep on keeping on. I finish what I start. I am a loyal and committed friend.
