In this episode of the Thinking Big Podcast, we dive into what persistence is and the three key ingredients you need to create it.
We explore why persistence is crucial in achieving success and reaching your goals, and how it makes us strong and resilient.
From a neuroscience perspective, we learn about the brain's ability to regulate motivation and focus in the face of adversity, and how dopamine, the "feel-good" neurotransmitter, reinforces our behavior and helps us persist in our efforts.
We also discuss the different forms of persistence, including emotional, physical, and mental persistence, and how having a clear vision, belief in yourself, and a solid plan drives us forward in the face of adversity.
We learn about the importance of staying the course, even when faced with obstacles and distractions, and how understanding that every obstacle brings with it an equivalent advantage builds even more persistence.
Persistence is a crucial component in achieving success and reaching your goals, and by embracing its power, we can persevere in the pursuit of our dreams and opportunities, just like the stream that wins over the rock through its unwavering perseverance.
It is important to understand they are not goals nor merely desires, but profound needs that underlie and motivate every choice, every belief, and every decision we make.
Because they are the driving force behind any person’s behavior, understanding the needs and the vehicles used to meet them, we will have a better understanding of why life is the way it is currently and more importantly, how to facilitate change.
