Perseverance is something that a lot of people talk about. I was reminded about how important this was last week. I participated in the first hundred articles challenge on ezine articles and was unsuccessful the first time I tried. I succeeded in completing the challenge the second time I participated. That perseverance has resulted in paid freelance opportunities because whenever anyone wants to see a writing sample, I just point them to the articles that I’ve previously published on ezinearticles. I would not have that body of work if I didn’t stick to my guns and complete the goal that I set out to do. I will admit that I have gotten off schedule in my quest to post every day this month. I had a busier than normal weekend last weekend, but that did not stop me from posting today. I just have to remember to post my weekend posts in advance. Moral of this story: Keep going even when things don’t go exactly as you have planned.
