Perseverance, in 33 Words

by Nate St. Pierre on May 4, 2012

As I get older, I’m realizing more and more the value of perseverance in life. So very often the person who succeeds is not necessarily the fastest, strongest or smartest, but simply the one left standing in the end.

To go a bit cliche*, it’s not how many times you get knocked down, but how many times you get back up.

With that, here’s today’s 33-word story:

I am still here. Time after time after pain after time, I am still here, with all patience. And I will continue to be here, ready to take my chance when it comes.

Now try it for yourself. Leave your 33-word story on Perseverance in the comments. It just takes a few minutes, and it gets the brain going. Let’s see whatcha got!

*And don’t forget to join @Write_By_Night and I for #clichechat at random times on Twitter. You will be sorry.
