    langer Atem

    der Widerstand war so groß, dass es eines sehr langen Atems bedrufte, um das Projekt umzusetzen

    Opposition was so fierce that it took quite some perseverance to implement the project.

    gibt es auch einen ähnlich bildhaften Begriff ?

    vielleicht sogar, einen ähnlich anmutenden ?

    vielleicht sogar mit "Atem" ?

    An E. concept comparable to the G. Atem in this idiom? Nothing explicit, as far as I know. I guess one could argue that the idea can be at least implicit in the concept of “staying power,” which works for “langer Atem” in certain contexts.

    I took stamina & motivation

    #5 - If you insist on those two words, I'd put motivation first, because it comes first, then stamina can prove itself.

    to be in it/sth. for the long haul

    for the long haul

    For a long period of time; permanently or for as long as something takes to accomplish, attain, etc. Usually refers to one's commitment to someone or something.

    If you need something bildhaft the suggestion above might work. It wouldn't work in the sentence in the OP, however. You would have to adapt it to the context, but it seems like a similar concept.
