Recently, while I was having a discussion with a client regarding the future of his business, a word was thrown into the conversation – “Perseverance”. 

We were discussing how great businesses & entrepreneurs have failed multiple times but still they never gave up. They kept on moving forward and eventually succeeded.

Problems are temporary, whatever we feel is temporary and to be honest does not even matter in the long run. It’s funny & scary, but sometimes we create our own problems & get worried for no reason. Here comes the second ‘P’ – Perception.

“There is no good or bad without us, there is only perception. There is the event itself and the story we tell ourselves about what it means.”

As I’ve described in my beautiful illustration below 😛 – It’s all about how we perceive the situation. Either we can see the problems – get disheartened & give up. OR We can use the tools & resources at our disposal to solve the problem & move towards our goal.

It’s all about how we tell the story to ourselves. Do what you can, with what you have, where you are.
