Don't be discouraged. It's often the last key in the bunch that opens the lock.
Persistance in all things means that you never give up and keep on going. There are many things along the way, meaning our walk in life, that keep us from immediately achieving our goals. Things that temporarily stop us from getting things done. Interruptions and impediments that try to keep us from getting our work done, or that hold back our dreams.
It is better to persevere and keep on trying. With a little faith and hope all things will work out for the best. Knowing how hard it is to struggle up from the bottom of despair, I know what it is to persist. To give every day a chance and keep on going. It's true that patience, persistence and perspiration make an unbeatable combination for success.
There is a light at the end of the tunnel. Things do change for the better. It's when we are at the end of our rope, that we need to hang on as it is then that things will change.
Difficult things take a long time, impossible things a little longer.
