A little more persistence, a little more effort, and what seemed hopeless failure may turn to glorious success.
With ordinary talent and extraordinary perseverance, all things are attainable.
It ain't about how hard you can hit. Its about how hard you can get hit, and how much you can take, and keep moving forward.
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.
The most essential factor is persistence - the determination never to allow your energy or enthusiasm to be dampened by the discouragement that must inevitably come.
Nothing in this world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful people 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.
The person interested in success has to learn to view failure as a healthy, inevitable part of the process of getting to the top.
Perseverance is a great element of success. If you knock long enough and loud enough at the gate, you are sure to wake up somebody.
Patience and perseverance have a magical effect before which difficulties disappear and obstacles vanish.
Never give up on what you love because some one makes fun of you. Never quit or give up. You will make it through.
If one dream should fall and break into a thousand pieces, never be afraid to pick one of those pieces up and begin again.
What man actually needs is not a tensionless state but rather the striving and struggling for some goal worthy of him. What he needs is not the discharge of tension at any cost, but the call of a potential meaning waiting to be fulfilled by him.
Most of the important things in the world have been accomplished by people who have kept on trying when there seemed to be no hope at all.
Getting ahead in a difficult profession requires avid faith in yourself. That is why some people with mediocre talent, but with great inner drive, go much further than people with vastly superior talent.
Achievement is not always success, while reputed failure often is. It is honest endeavor, persistent effort to do the best possible under any and all circumstances.
