The Perseverance Perspective

By Robert Akers------------May 2015

Adversities

Perseverance is the ability to fight through adversities no matter how difficult the challenge may be. Dartanyon Crockett and Leroy Sutton are great examples of people who persevered and overcame their adversities. They didn't let their obstacles block them from being triumphant. In this month's newsletter, we see an example of two men who faced many challenges in their lives, but persevered through adversities.

Looking at other people's triumphs inspire you to want to push harder and not get overwhelmed by the adversities in your own life. When we see a person's struggles, we can learn how to deal with adversities and times when we may falter. There are opportunities in life to learn from other people's experiences. Dartanyon and Leroy are two examples of how if you are not complacent with the challenges of life, have conviction about rising above your circumstances and adhere to your goals, you can accomplish anything.
