Are you persistent? Do you do whatever it takes to achieve your goals? Do you know what the power of persistence can do? How to become persistent?

For the past three weeks or so, the Egyptian people have been persistent to achieve their goals to gain freedom, to topple Hosni Mubarak and his regime, and to change the constitution of their country.

Despite all the obstacles the Egyptian people encountered during the revolution in 2011, such as violence, cutting off internet, opening fire on protestors, and arresting Egyptian blogger Wael Ghonim and others, they stayed persistent and challenged all the obstacles they encountered because they had a strong desire to achieve their goals.

Lessons the Egyptians teach us about persistence

1. You need to persist to achieve success

2. You need to have strong desire to achieve your goals

3. You need to have strong belief in your capabilities

4. You need to have great concentration and focus

5. Everything is possible in life

If you run into an obstacle, try again until you get what you want. As long as you are still alive, then there is a chance for success and you will succeed if you put your mind to it. As I mentioned in my book “the ultimate guide to achieve your goals,“ many people are too close to success, but do not get what they want and desire because they are not persistent.

If you want to learn how to become persistent, follow the quick guide below:

1. Face your fears

If you want to be persistent, you have to face your fears. Many people tend to give up on their goals due to their fears. Challenging your fears is one of the major keys to becoming persistent. Remember, had the Egyptians gave up in the face of fear from Hosni Mubarak’s regime, they would have never persisted and never achieved success.

2. Become internally motivated

Research shows that when you are internally motivated, you will have stronger change to stay persistent. Ask yourself some questions:

•Why do you want to achieve this goal?
•What are the benefits you will gain?
•Do you want this goal more than anything else?
I personally always focus on the end result. When I focus on the end result, I become internally motivated, and this helps me to persist whenever I face an obstacle or a challenge in life.

3. Practice

When you start practicing the art of persistence, it will become a habit of yours. As you probably know, practice helps to form a habit. The more you practice, the more the habit becomes ingrained in you and becomes second nature
