The most significant lesson one can learn when they are on their journey to success is that adversities occur and that is normal. It is entirely okay to see that things are not going as planned, or a job you wanted wasn’t what you got. Anything you go through, every experience will lead you up to your potential on one condition. That one condition is persistence. “When you are persistent, there is nothing that can stop you from being who you are and where you want to go. The biggest idea behind this is that you are not a quitter. Situations in your way have come up to push for failure, but you as a whole are not a failure because you persist,” says Obi Shorinwa, managing director of Ora Group.
Studies show that majority of individuals will fail trying to achieve their goals or reaching their dreams. This doesn’t mean that they will fail entirely, but something will be a struggle, that struggle defines you, changes you or it breaks you. Persistence isn’t about giving up, it is about changing yourself, your tactics, your abilities to reach that one thing you truly desire and trying again. “Most people will forget that every route has difficulties and the route to success is not a walk in the park. Many people assume that the biggest leaders of our time became a sensation overnight. No, it’s not true — that success took years behind the screen to build and it came up in front of the public only after all that hard work was put forward,” says Obi Shorinwa of Ora Group.
Our main advice to anyone who has a dream would be to push forward and accomplish what you love. Yes, failures happen. Rejection happens. But it should never stop you from getting what you want and what you desire. “Your ability to dream shows in itself that you’re capable of victory, but it’s only a matter of time, and you will achieve your goals and become what you see yourself as,” says Obi Shorinwa of Ora Group.
