If at first you don't succeed...u know the rest

Posted by Dr. Patrice Smith

"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~

It is never easy to pick up the pieces and start all over after something you did or have tried has failed. It's frustrating! but, you must press on. Success is not only measured by the results of what was done but sometimes also from what is learnt by your failures. If there was something learnt from your failure - that is, in of itself a success.

On the other hand there is a tendency to confuse motivation with perseverance. Motivation comes and goes. It isn't motivation that produces results- it's your actions. Persistence and perseverance is what allows you to keep action when there is no motivation to do so. Ultimately, persistence provides it own motivation.

So, never give up. Hold stead fast and believe in yourself and your dream. And if at first you don't suceed try, and try again; for it is always better to try and fail than to not try at all.

    Very True words, too often are we motivated to do something but lack the persistence to achieve or see it through. Persistence is the key to all things, that IT that allows us to never give, never surrender, to train harder, work harder, try harder. Without persistence we cannot achieve Success, Wants and Love....Very good post !
