Every work will face certain barriers – physical, financial, emotional, socio-political, technological etc. Hence one needs perseverance – the ability to sustain one’s efforts in face of immense difficulties, to work with commitment and dedication.


With sustained effort success definitely comes:

  • Gautam Buddha subjected himself to the most severe austerities, intellectual queries and debates, before he could achieve enlightenment.
