To survive and thrive in life, you need to develop at least two virtues that keep you grounded. According to Ripul Mahajan, patience and perseverance are the two greatest virtues that everyone should possess in every aspect of life.


Ripul Mahajan is an entrepreneur who entered the cryptocurrency and blockchain field in 2017. He is also the marketing manager at Elite Canada Security and the CEO of BULLSTREET TRADERS. His experience in business has taught him both perseverance and patience. He explains that you are ready to face any obstacle once you have these two.

When hardships strike, most people close in on themselves and allow negative thoughts to take over. It is also extremely difficult to wait it out and allow a problem to run its course. Though this is a perfectly natural response, given that life will always throw challenges at you, it is crucial to learn how to manage it. You can wade through the murkiest waters when you have patience and perseverance. Mahajan explains that everyone should cultivate these virtues.

Patience helps you endure difficulty and with grace.

When you cultivate patience, you have a calm approach to provocation and misfortune. Mahajan says that patient people don't complain; they find ways to solve the problem.

Perseverance strengthens your self-confidence. Mahajan notes that perseverance pushes you to continue to believe in your capabilities and efforts despite difficulty and misfortune. This means that you don't give up on things even in the face of discouragement or difficulty.

Once you master these two virtues, you are well on your way to unlocking great success. According to Ripul Mahajan, these two virtues are the foundation of everything you will experience in your journey to success.

In order to develop these indispensable virtues, Mahajan recommends that you begin with focused attention on the things you wish to achieve.
