My favorite word is perseverance for two principal reasons. First, knowing the word and its meaning gives you hope. When people know what something means, they just get excited about what they could do if they do practice it. Second Putting into practice perseverance leads to success. There have many stories that clearly show that working hard give excellent results. Besides those who have not tried feel more willing to do it . Finally, perseverance by itself as a word is just wonderful.
