Imagine you are climbing a very tall tree to pluck some fruit. However, eventually, when you get to the top, you find out that you do not like the fruit because you were climbing the wrong tree. Many people chase goals for many years and eventually get there only to wonder why they were chasing these goals in the first place.
Persistence is valuable if you are chasing goals that are worthwhile and those that you really desire. Reflect on your goals to ensure that they are what you really desire and those that will create an impact for you and for those around you!
If you are persisting just for fame, you may end up climbing the wrong tree and not enjoy the fruits you get.
