Persist and Persevere

“Success is almost totally dependent upon drive and persistence. The extra energy required to make another effort or try another approach is the secret of winning.” - Denis Waitley

"Success seems to be connected with action. Successful people keep moving. They make mistakes, but they don't quit."

"Nothing can take the place of persistence. Talent will not. Thousands with talent are drifters. Genius will not. Unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not. The world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence alone solves all the world's big problems."

"Persistence turns talent into ability - sometimes into greatness."

“In the confrontation between the stream and the rock, the stream always wins. Not through strength, but through persistence.”

"Success seems to be largely a matter of hanging on after others have let go."

"The only real failure is not to try again."

Hi Sam...

Yeah.. the only failure is to not try again! Very excellent thought!

It is so easy to give up when the going gets tough... not so easy to keep at it!

thanks for this post Sam,
