How To Be More Persistent In Life

How I am able to stay positive in this business is because I continue to be persistent. In addition to being persistent in my goal setting, persistence involves keeping a positive attitude. It can feel as though it doesn’t really matter what you do in your day to day job… because what you are doing is so unimportant at the end of the day. However, persistence is more important than you might think… if you don’t start practicing it, all sorts of negative things happen in life. The key word here is persistence.

The word “persistence” simply does not have the same power it once did, especially as a verb. I’m sure you know that one. I’ll never tell when people to be persistent or not. But one thing I can tell you is to be persistent in your actions. The very act of trying to do something is the act of a person trying to put in the effort to get something done.

One of the biggest mistakes people make in this world is not knowing this. How often do you try to start a conversation with someone and they never respond? What do you get? You’re never going to get close to that person who ignores your attempts at conversation.

Persistence and persistence is all about persistence.

I have come to realize that persistence and persistence are not an either/or situation. Persistence is an a/or. You can only be persistence and persistent with people who are persistent.

Persistence is not about setting unrealistic goals. Persistence is about finding your own path while recognizing that no one knows what the future holds.

Persistence is not about doing what everyone else tells you to do. Persistence is about learning from your failures and making improvements. Persistence is about finding and sticking by your beliefs whether you believe it is right or wrong. Persistence is not getting upset if you don’t get what you want. Persistence is about being positive, positive, positive.

Persistence does not mean doing what everyone tells you to do. Persistence means doing what you find that works for YOU.

Persistence does not mean you want to work harder for less money. Persistence means you want to work harder for more money.

As an artist who has been creating for several years, I recently had an epiphany. I realized that everything I see in the business world on a regular basis is very unrealistic. There are no real consequences for failing to meet an unrealistic goal.

My idea with this post boils down to following three simple steps.

1. Be persistent.

You need to be persistent in getting yourself to where you want to go. It’s not the goal that is important; the work. And to get your dream job you need to do the work.

A lot people are frustrated that they have to spend so much time working for free… but that’s not how it works. I get to the studio by 8 pm every day. If i want to continue being an artist and make music, I need to continue pushing myself. If I don’t have the proper tools to do what I do, I won’t be able to do it.

You need to learn how to get your work. I’m not going to tell you how to do that, it’s up to you. If you want to be an assistant producer for a well known artist, that would be great and I understand that. If you want to become a studio session musician, you can, too.

So you need to learn how to get your work. Then stick with it. You’ll need to put yourself out there by reaching out to people that you know like and listen to and keep your eye on in hopes that you develop those connections as well.

Persistence and persistence are hard work, they are not glamorous at times, but they are the work that makes us who we are. Persistence is the fuel that allows us to get the results we want.

2. Be persistent in the workplace.

Work places are very difficult places where everyone knows everything and always has what you need.
