Nowadays, a majority of people claim that talent is crucial for anyone to accomplish anything. When companies are recruiting new members, they tend to investigate their employees about their backgrounds to see about their ability in the field while neglecting many of their other qualities, especially, their willing to persist. A bit of consideration over a few cases can lead us to the apparent truth that insistence is the key factor in one’s success.

Persistency help one realize his or her goals. Susan B Anthony, the renowned feminism whose influences are remarkable in the struggle for female rights, stuck to her goal and reached her success. Anthony was born in an era when most women got married, produced children, and deferred completely to their husbands and have hardly freedom. She decided to dedicate her life to struggle for female right. However the road was not easy. A golden opportunity for female suffrage had arisen with the drafting of the fifteenth amendment to the U.S. Constitution. This amendment was necessary to grant voting rights to the former slaves who were liberated by President Abraham Lincoln’s emancipation proclamation. However, the abolitionists supported the Fifteenth Amendment only to the extent that it gave African American males the right to vote while not a bit concerned about the amendment’s exclusion of women. Anthony met her failure and was vigorously struck. But she didn’t give up. She gave lectures and published books in order to spread the idea of women’s equality to men. She set up publications like The Revolution organizations like Woman’s State Temperance Society of New York and National Woman’s Suffrage Association to help women gain rights to keep inheritance, guardianship of children, and freedom in clothing. Her petition drives and lectures were instrumental and revolutionary in convincing the legislature to pass laws giving married women basic rights that they once lacked. Had she gave up her dreams when she faced such encumbrances, women today may still suffer from their restrained life. Therefore, we can conclude from the story of Anthony the essential role consistency played in the achievement of a success.

Persistency help accomplished people out of abysses and continue their legend. Charlie Chaplin, the prominent comic artist in the 20th century, continued his outstanding life after cheering up from a cataclysmic event in his life and prolonged his artistic career. After getting under the limelight, he came to his choke point in his life. His son died three days after birth and his wife alienated him. The bitterness and bereavement evoked his childhood memories and he lost faith in life. But he didn’t give up. Shortly afterwards, he came back with a new movie, the Kid, a movie that described a story similar to that of his own. He changed his setbacks into his materials for film making, and returned with great success, instead of relinquishing his career. His success was not gratuitous. He gained it after experiencing great sorrow, all because he chose not to abnegate when his beloved ones parted him. Without his persistency, he would never have brought the 7 masterpieces later, and his reputation would not have been so wide spread. Chaplin’s valor to face the truth and benefit from misfortunes substantiated the significance of perseverance in our lives.

Obviously, the examples of Anthony and Chaplin with all the evidence and analysis justify an unshakable conclusion that persistency is the single most tremendous factor in one’s success.
