I read a post the other day which featured this quote by Calvin Coolidge:
“Nothing in the world can take the place of Persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent. The slogan ‘Press On’ has solved and always will solve the problems of the human race.”
I think along with persistence and determination we need to add in a lot of self belief and confidence in our own abilities.
This quote also links quite well with the idea of persisting and not giving up:
“Life’s real failure is when you do not realize how close you were to success when you gave up.” – Anonymous
So if you are on the verge of giving up keep going that bit long and see what is round the next corner.
When has persistence and determination paid off for you?
Hope you all have a Happy Monday and fabulous week. Wishing you all success in everything you do this week.
