In a recent post on my Facebook feed, the topic was “What is your ONE WORD for 2017“. I was quick to respond to the post. I’ve always used the word perseverance as a description of my work mentality. In the comment thread, there was a comment that my word was stressful and negative. It made me think more about the word. Was I using the word wrong? Was it a negative word? So, I did some online research about the word.
- Steady persistence in adhering to a course of action, a belief, or a purpose; steadfastness
- The act of persisting or persevering; continuing or repeating behavior
- the quality of being determined to do or achieve something; firmness of purpose
- synonyms: persistence, tenacity, determination, staying power, indefatigability, steadfastness, purposefulness
Well, I still like this word and it’s meaning. I think it’s a great word to describe how I work in my real estate business. Take a look at some of these quotes too. I read most of these quotes and I still like my word: Perseverance. It’s a good word.
