Keep Going. No Matter What.

“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.”Calvin Coolidge

They say it’s not how good you are, but how good you want to be.

They say it’s all about will power.

I agree.

When the world says, “Give up,” Hope whispers, “Try one more time.”
Hope. Man’s greatest strength and biggest weakness.

People used to believe in the power of intelligence when it came to success in life. IQ was believed to be the determinant factor in the quality of one’s life. Then it kind of changed. Emotional intelligence was found to be more important.

Recently, though, we are beginning to understand that hope is what truly makes the difference.

  2. To have strong endurance in anything in life is an admirable trait. This post definetley displays that good things don’t come easy but it is well worth it in the end as long as you put in the discipline, hard work and willpower.

  3. There are no short cuts or avoiding putting in the hard yards to achieve what we were born to do. Some people may shine like a shooting star but how often their light fizzles out soon after because they haven’t built solid foundations. The voice in our heads and the unhelpful negativity from those close to us is a constant battle but we need to breakthrough. I believe in hope and I am so thankful to those who don’t give up because the world would be a sadder and bleak place without their contribution. Hang in there, Christian. Not everyone will get you but others will!

  5. I remember when we were in elementary school the teacher would say “A quitter never wins and a winner never quits.” Now I see and know why. As always a great post. Blessings and peace.
