Great leaders never give up. (Jim Hines, Physician and gubernatorial candidate)

Perseverance is an essential quality in the pursuit of achieving worthy goals. Wannabe leaders who give in to the pressures of politics, societal demands, or distractions most often cannot recruit others to work with them. Wanting to lead demands the perseverance that involves diligence, focus, and commitment.

Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up (Galatians 6:9). Be strong and do not give up, for your work will be rewarded (2 Chronicles 15:7).
