You can describe things as persistent, but it often has a negative nuance. For example, a persistent cough or the persistent rain. However, if you are a persistent person, it is generally a good thing. If you describe yourself as persistent it means that you continue trying to do something, even though it is difficult or other people are against it.

For example, you might be persistent in your English studies, even though it’s difficult, or you might feel like you are not improving, you are persistent and keep going. Good work! Or talking about change, you might be going through a tough time, but by being persistent – if you “keep on keeping on” – you’ll get through it.
