Explore the value of Perseverance
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.
Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
There are two big forces at work, external and internal. We have very little control over external forces such as tornadoes, earthquakes, floods, disasters, illness and pain. What really matters is the internal force. How do I respond to those disasters? Over that I have complete control.
Dr. Leo Buscaglia
Do not be too timid and squeamish about your actions. All life is an experiment. The more experiments you make the better. What if they are a little coarse, and you may get your coat soiled or torn? What if you do fail, and get fairly rolled in the dirt once or twice. Up again, you shall never be so afraid of a tumble.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
Dory, Finding Nemo
Few things are impossible to diligence and skill. Great works are performed not by strength, but perseverance.
Dr. Samuel Johnson
The most important key to achieving great success is to decide upon your goal and launch, get started, take action, move.
I am happy for who I am, and what I have come to be. I look forward to whatever else that may come with positivity.
