Out of a maximum
of 30, where do you stand? The higher your score, the more perseverant you are. By rating
your perseverance quotient, see if you can pinpoint areas where you may lack
stick-to-itiveness. For example, you may need to clarify your goals and get
clear on why you really want to achieve them. Try to break them down into small doable
pieces, complete with a timeline. Or perhaps your support system is weak. Do your friends
and family know why your goal is important to you? Do they even know how they can
help you? Who else can you enlist for support? When you suffer set backs or bad days, stay
optimistic. As Robert Louis Stevenson said, Don't judge each day by
the harvest you reap, but by the seeds you plant. Ask, in what small way can I move
forward todayor at least not move backwards? These 10 indicators can serve as tools
to improve your chances of success. What areas do you still need to work on?
