I insist that you persist this week.
Success is stumbling from failure to failure with no loss of enthusiasm. -Winston Churchill
Let the wise words of Winston Churchill remind you this morning that life will have stumbling blocks. You will be discouraged. You will have periods of failure. You will want to give up and youwill feel like none understands. But those negative experiences are only negative depending upon your perspective. Failure isn’t failure unless you let it be; failure and any negativity only becomes negative if you allow it to dissuade and distract you from your journey towards greatness. True success lies in persevering from failure to failure, in pressing on despite how tired you might be and in clinging tightly to what really matters in life so that you will never lose focus on what really moves you.
Don’t lose your enthusiasm, ever. No matter how the circumstances of your life change, press on towards your dreams and your goals with hope and confidence. The only thing standing in between you and an uncommon life, that is, a life that leaves a legacy, is you.
Be uncommon in your life. Let enthusiasm become one of your most distinguished attributes Stop living with a back up plan and let your enthusiasm guide your life.
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
