The adjective for today is “persistent”, and it is used when we want to talk about a person who never stops trying to accomplish something. They continue to try to succeed and don’t give up. For example:

If you want to succeed in business, you have to be persistent. Most people give up when things get tough, but really successful people never do.

I was finally able to convince Jill to be my girlfriend. At first, she didn’t want that, but I was very persistent.

It’s going to be very difficult to get ABC Company to be our client. We’re going to have to be very persistent.

This book can be a bit difficult to read, but if you’re persistent, I think you’ll find it very good.

When we use the word “persistent”, there is no guarantee of success at the end; it simply means that the person doesn’t stop trying.
