Persevering Through Failures

By: Dylan Wrona June 2, 2015


Life is full of hardships and failures. These are also known as adversities. Life wouldn't be interesting if there weren't hurdles to overcome. When there are adversities, perseverance has to come into play. Perseverance is when someone fails over and over again, but still gets up and works harder after each failure to make that failure become a success. My successes in life happened because I have learned through my struggles to be stronger and reach for my goal of improving my skills. For example, when I have struggled with my hitting in baseball, I participated in extra practices with a personal trainer.

Learning Experience

I can learn many things from the perseverance's of others in order to overcome adversity in today's world. The things that people do to persevere through the different things in life, can inspire me to change something that I am doing that might not be exactly the way that I am wanting it to be. One thing that I can learn from other peoples perseverance's is how they handled the adversity in order to overcome it and have success in what they are trying to accomplish. I could adapt to what the other people do in order to persevere by following in their footsteps.
