According to the Russian proverb fall is permitted. Getting up is mandatory! Said in other words, there is no guarantee that we will not face difficult times. And when they come it is possible that we have a stumble and that this will make us fall. But in that moment, just us all the options less one: get up and continue. Even, lift us up is not an option but an unavoidable duty. What can lead us to be persevering?Several elements lead us to persevere, some depend on us and other circumstances.

The most recurrent to lead us to apply the perseverance is the need. In the case of the initial story our man had no choice and should go ahead. It is the case of the Castaway that clings to a trunk which is his only chance of salvation. But in other cases it is necessary that in the depths of our being we reflect and take the decision to go ahead. Why a persevering person has at least some of these features: 1.

A great determination: to resist the ravages of time, the anguish of the discouragement and the menacing face of grief. 2. A fierce self-discipline. To impose the duty to continue forward in the moments in which the road is stony and the trail becomes steep. 3. A solid conviction. Belief in their principles, beliefs and values. That conviction will allow you to know that you are right although the voices of its manifest around otherwise. 4. Faculty of automotivarse. It is possible that in the critical hour we can consult someone whose words motivate us. But it is good to be prepared because if not we who motivates us we will have to go to the easiest of solutions: motivate us ourselves. 5. A strong faith in God. Two people must rely on: in God and ourselves. Much care with the order, because it may not be altered. First, faith in God, then in ourselves. Perseverance is a demonstration of strength but also of putting trust in a being Superior, kindly and full of power. If you want to repeat a phrase that will fill it with fortitude and serenity, read this and repeat it each time needed: everything what I can through Christ which strengthens me. (Phil. 4: 13).
