Perseverance: n. extreme persistence in trying to achieve a goal(s) and pursuing it much beyond the point where close to 100% of people would stop. Perseverance may be called an addiction to a goal(s) which has a very low probability of being achieved. The perseverance limit is a lifetime.
Lifelong dedication to something is perseverance and there are plenty of inspiring examples of very talented humans with unsuccessful beginnings who made it big eventually and even became famous. Thomas Edison, Milton Hershey, Steve Jobs, J. K. Rowling, and Simon Cowell are just a few of the truly outstanding examples of great entrepreneurial success which demanded much perseverance.
The common human must be satisfied with lesser achievements through perseverance such as a lifelong monogamous marriage, lifelong friendship, lifelong dedication to a religion or cause such as wildlife conservation, a lifelong dedication to a career such as being a writer, lawyer, or doctor, and a lifelong dedication to eating healthy and exercising in moderation.
A lifelong dedication to family, friends, job, cause, or healthy living is what the common human is capable of and if these goals do not inspire you then you will probably be leading a rather empty lonely life.
