What is perseverance?

  • Perseverance is commitment, hard work, patience, endurance.
  • Perseverance is being able to bear difficulties calmly and without complaint.
  • Perseverance is trying again and again.

You show perseverance when you ...

  • Give up your tv time to spend hours studying
  • Try a new sport that is very difficult but you don't give up
  • Have a learning disability but keep studying even when discouraged
  • Come from a home where there is fighting and unhappiness but you still try your best
  • Have missed a week of school but you work hard to catch up
  • Are at the end of a difficult race but you cross the finish line
  • Save money and make sacrifices to buy something
  • Spend hours practicing on your music
  • Study and work hard to raise your grade
  • Try out for something you weren't successful at the first time
