Perseverance

Perseverance

Very little that is really worthwhile
in life can be achieved without
perseverance. An athlete may train
for years before they are ready to
compete at the highest level. A
musician must practice every day,
sometimes for hours at a time, if they
are to really master their instrument.

• Can you give an example of
something you have achieved by
determined perseverance?
• Is there a skill that you think you
could improve with perseverance?

COURAGE

Being courageous can mean different things to different people. For example, one person may think it easy to speak in front of a large audience, whilst another would need to find lots of courage to do this. Everyone faces challenges from time to time, and we have to find courage to overcome them.

“Courage is not the absence of fear, but the willingness to overcome that fear.”   Nelson Mandela

Thought of the Day

• Who or what helps us find courage?
• Is there someone that we admire because of the courage that they have shown?
