As I’ve talked with people around the world – men, women, college students, youth groups, etc … “persevering” is not always the easiest thing to do; giving up sometimes is…for that moment.

Here’s a powerful acrostic of the word “PERSEVERE” that Mary Kay wrote in her book, The Best Way Out Is Through: The Mary Kay Ash Story

Persist no matter what.

Endure discomfort.

Request help.

Steadfastly hold on to your beliefs and values.

Envision triumph.

Very consistently keep at it.

Embrace adversity as your teacher.

Refuse to give up.

Enjoy and celebrate every tiny bit of progress!
