Perseverance is the hard work you do after you get tired of doing the hard work you already did.
No matter hard tough the task is you have to keep going. Perseverance is a great quality to have and it can help you achieve many goals in life. When I'm snowboarding perseverance is a great quality to have. If you fall down you have to get up, if you want to complete a jump you have to be resilient. When I am ready to quit, I persevere a keep on going. If you keep on pushing you are bound to complete the task you are trying to complete. I was at Nashoba Valley ski area and I had just smacked my face into the freshly fallen snow. I was trying to complete a jump that I have been trying to do for years. I was all alone, there was not another person on the mountain. I kept thinking to myself "I can do it." I had to persevere to complete this jump. After landing flat on my face I could task the warm blood in my mouth. Keep going, keep going, I kept saying to myself. I spit on the ground and start to walk back up the hill. When I reach the top I stare at the ten foot tall ski jump. I take a deep breath and start going down the hill. As I hit the jump I fly into the air like a bird. A split second later I feel the ground between me feet. I am gliding on snow, I did it. I finally did it. My perseverance helped me through the challenge. If I hadn't been resilient I wouldn't have been able to achieve the goal I set in my mind. I got up when I fell down and I finally did it, I landed the jump.
