The Results of Persevering
One result of persevering is receiving what you had wished for in the first place. Reasons why this can be the end result is because if you continue working for what you want, it's more likely you just might get it. Another impact from persevering can be learning from your experience. This means that if you learn the benefits of sticking to something, that could help you decide what to do when you find yourself running into other conflicts. Lastly, if you continue persevering, then one effect could be inspiring others around you. If you reach for your goals, that's setting a good example and hopefully many people will feel influenced by your smart choices.
All in all, persevering will bring you pleasant results in the end. But to persevere, you need courage. Courage is the first step to perseverance, so even though solving problems and sticking to something may be frightening, you need to be brave and courageous in order to succeed at what you wish.

The First Step to Problem Solving
Solving issues on your own can be challenging. Sometimes they're easier to solve but at other times they're more difficult to solve. I believe no matter the situation, they always result in a reachable solution.
This is shown in the story When You Reach Me by Rebecca Stead. In the beginning of the story a new character is introduced. The problem is, he is an old homeless man who screams at no one and disturbs the neighborhood. One solution that was attempted was to simply ask the man what time it was. Miranda did just that to see how he would react. If he responded with the correct time, he was safe and kind. However, if he had answered with a disturbing response, then he most likely wasn't secure. This was a clever way of investigating more about the old man because he wouldn't have guessed that Miranda was up to something, he would've thought she was just wondering the time. As a result, the homeless man thought Miranda was harmless and gave her the correct time as a response.
Also in the story, Miranda and her Mother's apartment was broken into. This is a problem alone, but the real issue was that the home invader never touched anything. That was an issue because it left Miranda and her mother overwhelmed and cautious about everything. One solution is to get your locks changed to make sure no one else breaks into your home. Another dilemma is that once every week for the following months after the break-in, Miranda received multiple letters from an anonymous writer giving her subtle clues as to who it was who broke in. This led to a lot of confusion and discomfort for Miranda about being out-and-about. This can be solved with problem-solving. If you investigate more and inform the police, you'll be sure to find out who the invader was. All in all, every situation has a solution to it, it just depends on how determined you are to solve the problem.
As one can conclude, on the other side of every dilemma is a solution waiting to be found. Also, the first step to problem-solving is courage, as shown in the previous examples. Miranda needed courage to walk in public when she was afraid of the anonymous home invader, just like how she needed courage to approach the homeless man. So if you have a puzzle that you can't quite solve, courage is always the missing piece that brings it all together in the end.

Courage and How it Works

Courage and its Characteristics
However, Lee and Callie are also quite different, despite their similarities. Lee showed his courage when he was afraid of what was happening. Callie showed her courage when she was afraid of what other people thought. The two characters both showed boldness, just at different times. Lee's courage was really needed when he used it because without his bravery, he and Leo could've ended up homeless on the streets. Callie's courage was important because if she had been so willing to give up, she would've discarded what makes her happy and she most likely wouldn't have experienced that special bond that she and her Grandfather created. In the end, despite the similarities both Lee and Callie share, they both are unique.
In conclusion, the main characters in Orphan Train Rider and The Evolution of Calpurnia Tate, Lee and Callie, are both similar yet different. The two of them displayed courage and how it significantly helps with being more determined. As you can see, braveness will impact the life of you and/or others around you depending on how you use it and when you use it.
