The ability to keep going, in spite of the many obstacles on the path. Commitment to the goal and remaining patient through all the failures is perseverance. Such tremendous will power comes from the inside- it can be developed, not trained.

Perseverance is a skill that is valued for those who possess it, are valued and heavily relied on since you can always trust them to give their full effort.
On being asked about his secret to success, Henry Ford is believed to have said, “When you start something, don’t quit until you finish it.” He himself failed 5 times before establishing the successful Ford motors.
Perseverance also includes the ability to remain patient and to remain faithful to the task that’s been set in motion. Never quitting shows that there is more to success than just skills, knowledge, experience and hard work.
