Q3(a). Quote: Importance of Perseverance

What does each of the following quotations mean to you?
a. “Every work has got to pass through hundreds of difficulties before succeeding. Those that persevere will see the light, sooner or later” – Swami Vivekananda (Answer in 150 words)
b. . . .
c. . . .
It is not easy to achieve success when we have high goals. The tougher is the task; the higher are the chances of failure. Failure is painful, and it often shatters our confidence. We also face criticism when we fail, which breaks our hearts and demoralises us.
Hence, we must be ready to work hard for a long time till we succeed in the mission. Like an ant that falls many times before it reaches its goal, we too must be ready to fail and learn the lessons, but never stop till we have achieved our goals. Swami Vivekananda has therefore given the message, “Arise, awake and stop not till the goal is reached.” We must be ready to face the challenges and not deterred by the difficulties in our mission. Instead, we must continue to work hard and move towards our goals. If we persevere in our effort and don’t give up, we shall achieve our goals sooner or later.  (161 words)
