The Path Of Perseverance

Perseverance is the tough fight for something you want.

Eleanor Roosevelt's Adversity and Triumph

Eleanor Roosevelt was born in a troubled household, which caused her to grow up as a shy and depressed person. She married her distant cousin, Franklin D. Roosevelt, who later became the President of the United States. After a few years into their marriage, Eleanor discovered that Franklin was seeing another woman. Instead of ending the marriage she accepted Franklin's apology while also thinking about her own life, apart from the one that she's known just as Franklin's wife. After this she decided that she would no longer define herself solely in terms of her husband's wants and needs. She starting putting energy in to abolition of child labor and other social problems. Franklin was paralyzed by polio in 1921 which helped Eleanor discover her talent of being an eloquent speaker. She started working on women's rights and civil rights. She held more than 300 press conferences that she restricted only to women journalists which would force news organizations to hire more women. She never let criticism get the best of her and turned her vulnerabilities into combativeness and ambition.

J.K. Rowling's Path To Success

J.K. Rowling started getting rejected by people in school as a young girl. Her math teacher would divide the class into two halves, the left side for smarter students and the right side for ones that were a bit slower. When she grew up to be an adult she had the idea of Harry Potter. Unfortunately some thieves broke into her house and stole many precious belongings as well as sentimental valuables. They didn't steal Harry Potter outlines though, and she knew that Harry Potter was the key. Her mother had died and her husband could not find a job. She had to work all the way until her child's birth and she saw herself as worthless. The one thing keeping her determined was her novel, Harry Potter. She would write chapters in her free time to take her mind off of all her troubles.

What Did We Learn From Them?

We can learn from the perseverance of others to overcome adversity in today's world by doing what they did. Maybe find ways to forget about the issues as they pass by like J.K. Rowling did, or just don't fight back at all aggressively like Jackie Robinson. These people teach us to keep doing what we love even though others will judge us and try to bring us down. Not everyone will agree with what you have to say but you don't have to stop just because others think that it's strange or wrong. These people have taught everyone that there's always hope and everything will get better if you just work hard enough.
