The difference between perseverance and obstinacy is that one comes from a strong will; and the other from a strong won’t .
~Henry Ward Beecher (1813 – 1887)
That which we persist in doing becomes easier, not that the task itself has become easier, but that our ability to perform it has improved.
~Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803 – 1882)
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.
~Calvin Coolidge (1872 – 1933)
Keep going, keep taking one step after the other. Don’t think about how large or small each step is, just keep moving forward. As you do this, momentum builds and so does your confidence. The icing on the cake is that you’ll eventually reach your goals and dreams–as long as you keep on keeping on! Only good things result when you keep taking steps in the direction of your goals and dreams!
