Persistence is; a combination of your desire and your willpower, your urge to get there, no matter what happens.
Being persistent is; having determination. Just like the waves wearing down a rock a litle at a time.
If you want to see persistence in action, watch any young child and how persistent they can be when they want something. The child never falters they will try every angle of persuasion until they get what they want, it’s pretty difficult to resist them.
