Persistence, week 2

During our lessons this week, we will talk about how positive outcomes will come from Persistence.  Our in-class discussion lesson for this week follows below:

“Patience, persistence and perspiration make an unbeatable combination for success.” — Napoleon Hill (author)

Persistence is the quality of keeping steadily going despite problems or difficulties.  It is a quality that high achievers possess.  The longer we stay committed to a task or goal, the more likely we are to achieve a positive outcome.  Through persistence, we develop ourselves and learn new lessons.  Anything really worth having is worth working for.  Good things happen when we stay dedicated, patient and persistent.

Discussion Questions:

  1.  What is something you think is worth having that is worth working for?
  2.   Do you think that coming to karate lessons every week shows persistence?
  3.   Does it take persistence to earn advancement to your next belt?
