A key to sustained success is perseverance.
Perseverance has less to do with skills and knowledge and more to do with a consistent commitment to that which matters most.
Perseverance draws meaning out of adversity.
Perseverance ends only when the task is done.
Perseverance is willing to wrestle with a lion until the lion gets tired.
Calvin Coolidge puts it this way, “Nothing in this 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.”
