behind eve ry great achievement in anyone ’ s life lies perseverance . we see this in every human endeavour . out -standing sportsmen spend all their time practising . t heir endurance is beyond imagination . the same is t rue of businessmen who build up for tunes . what we usually see a re their achievements , but once we go behind the scenes we will find that they have put in a lot of continual steady ef forts . we all have read of gr ea t musicians , write rs and inventors who have cr eated or discover ed br eakthroughs in human achievement . inva riably they have said that they owe all their success to per - severance . as to college students , quite a big number of them have become s ucces sful language lear ners through persever - ance , however , a cert ain group of them ju st stop half way and their pr evious effor ts turn out to be f ruitless .
of all the countless examples the saga of colonel saunde rs is perhaps one of the most outstanding . the 65-yea r-old man from kentucky had a dr eam to star t a chain of f ried chicken restaur ants all over the wor ld . to realize his dr eam, he knew that he needed a r estaurant owner to go into par tners hip with him to open the first restaur ant and to f ry chicken according to the secret recipe he had . colonel saunde rs had knocked on 1008 doors befor e he finally found his par tne r . it is doubtful whether many of u s would have had the pe rseverance to knock even a hundred doors .
from the above discu ssion we can draw a conclusion that success comes to anyone who keep s working pe rseveringly and lack of persever ance can only result in fru st ra tion and failure .
