What is perseverance?

Perseverance can be defined by the strength that you put toward your goal. It means you never let anything get in your way and keep going. Being resilient is a key for someone to persevere. When you face an adversity you have to bounce back up and keep going. The way people define perseverance can not be narrowed down to one definition. When you face an adversity all you need to do is to persevere through it.
