Power of Perseverance

Perseverance = Firmness,Resolve,Determination
I think,Perseverance is one of the most important traits for one's success.I know,after you have done your job,everyone would be very eager to see the result immediately.But the Larva can't become a Butterfly in a day,it takes its own time.It has to go undergone the metamorphosis to become a butterfly.This is natural process.I know it is painful to wait,but this is the process.Take action,do your job,follow through,wait patiently,you will get what you want.You can't build a palace within minutes,only aladin's genie can do this.From the blue print to brick,it needs a lot of hard work and patient waiting.
Real Life example of my friend:
My friend is working as a software engineer in usa.He got married three years ago.After marriage,he thought he can set up an apartment in usa,then call his wife.He sent all the relevant docs for dependant visa.But everytime,she went,she got query after query.His employer did some mistake in the documentation process.He was not paid while he was on bench before marriage which relected in the documentation.They tried year after year.Meanwhile he used to go to india and spend months together with his family.His family,friends,relatives,everyone was critical of this guy.His elder brother's manager started saying like my son got the visa within 15 days,your brother didn't know what he is doing and his elder conveyed his manager's view to his family.Even his mother went ahead and asked why in the first place he got married.As his native place is a small village,all the people started asking why she is not going to usa after years.She was living in a small room in the remote village.she has to walk for 2kms to go bus stop.They used to talk over phone for hours together.None of his close friends even called her and asked her how she was doing and gave her hope.There were lot of family problems between both the families.
They prayed almost all the Gods in the southern india.But they never gave up,they tried year after year.In Feb this year,they got the depemdant visa,they are going to unite in usa in september.This is one of the classic example of Perseverance in real life.
