We have all been there: We just want to give up. The effort feels too great, the will to small. Some minutes ago, I found an encouraging article about persuasion. What I really liked about it, was the paragraph about persistence. Persistence is our strongest weapon, and we all need to remind ourselves of that every now and again.
The person who is willing to keep asking for what they want, and keeps demonstrating value, is ultimately the most persuasive. The way that so many historical figures have ultimately persuaded masses of people is by staying persistent in their endeavors and message. Consider Abraham Lincoln, who lost his mother, three sons, a sister, his girlfriend, failed in business and lost eight separate elections before he was elected president of the United States.
