This word means something different to everyone. For me it means dedication. For others it means determination. But no matter what the meaning of this word is for you it still has the same context: as long as you have perseverance you will continue on in any course of action despite obstacles.

This “course of action” we all achieve is made up of our goals. Everyone has a goal. Some set goals that can be easily achieved. Others set goals that go above and beyond their capabilities. But most set goals somewhere in between the two extremes to help push themselves.

Whether you achieve the goals you set for yourself or not, as long as you have determination and dedication you will persevere and achieve what is right for you.

Perseverance is a theme that runs throughout this issue. So, sit down with Greg and take a look at the dedication graffiti artists have in trying to make graffiti a legitimate art form. Read how much determination it takes to start a business from scratch with Jeff. And finally, read about how perseverance will take you above and beyond the goals you set for yourself with Nicole.

All these stories plus more give the word perseverance its true meaning: Goals can and will be achieved as long as you have determination and dedication.
