Perseverance: continued effort to do or achieve something despite difficulties, failure, or opposition. But don’t let Merriam-Webster fool you though. It is neither a necessary nor a sufficient condition of success. Luck and talent are far more preferable. However, for the majority of us who belong in the fat belly of that Bell curve, perseverance means everything.
After persevering in the game of Pokemon Go for almost two fruitless years, I finally received a EX raid pass to participate today in an exclusive, invite-only, grandiose battle with fellow steadfast trainers to have the chance at beating and capturing the game’s most powerful pocket monster aka Mewtwo.
And just like a perfect Disney movie, the disadvantaged underdog, the ugly duckling, the black sheep, the fish out of water, in the end, she rises up triumphantly through perseverance and becomes the unlikely heroine and saves the world. #Mewtwo
