Stick to It: The Power of Persistence

The three essentials to achieve anything worthwhile are, first, hardwork; second stick-to-it-iveness; third, common sense. – THOMAS A. EDISON

The second essential key to your success isn’t obvious to many.

That’s because everyone talks about dreaming big and working smart, but very few people speak about stick-to-it-iveness.

You only need to study successful people around you.

Well, at least those who remained successful until their last days. You will hear from them how sticking to your inspiration, your values, your hopes and dreams will bring you immense happiness.

You must be stickier as you get older.

Stick with your dreams when others tell you to forget them.

Stick with your dreams when facing tough times and you aren’t sure whether or not you can make it.

People use words like perseverance, resolve, determination, doggedness, tenacity, staying power, steadfastness, dedication, persistence, commitment, fortitude, grit, endurance, resilience, guts, stamina — but nothing is a visual as stick-to-it-iveness!

Help employees succeed. And when you have millennial employees in your team, teach them the power of stick-to-itiveness too.
