Persistence

Quick-fixes do not work.

Quick-fixes do not work.

Picture Quote Text:

“Quick-fixes do not work.  All lasting inner change requires time and effort.  Persistence is the mother of personal change.  I’m not saying that it will take years to make profound changes in your life.  If you diligently apply the strategies I am sharing with you every day for only one month, you will be astonished at the results.  You will begin to tap into the highest levels of your own capacity and enter the realm of the miraculous.  But to reach this destination, you must not get hung up on the outcome.  Instead, enjoy the process of personal expansion and growth.  Ironically, the less you focus on the end result, the quicker it will come.” ~ Robin S. Sharma, The Monk Who Sold His Ferrari

“I will persist until I succeed.  I was not delivered into this world into defeat, nor does failure course in my veins.  I am not a sheep waiting to be prodded by my shepherd.  I am a lion and I refuse to talk, to walk, to sleep with the sheep.  The slaughterhouse of failure is not my destiny.  I will persist until I succeed.” ~ Og Mandino, The Greatest Salesman in the World

“Remarkable visions and genuine insight are always met with resistance.  And when you start to make progress, your efforts are met with even more resistance.  Products, services, career paths… whatever it is, the forces for mediocrity will align to stop you, forgiving no errors and never backing down until it’s over.  If it were any other way, it would be easy.  And if it were any other way, everyone would do it and your work would ultimately be devalued.  The yin and yang are clear: without people pushing against your quest to do something worth talking about, it’s unlikely that it would be worth the journey. Persist.” ~ Seth Godin, Whatcha Gonna Do With That Duck?

“No one ever achieved a goal by being interested in its achievement.  One must be committed.  In fact, in studying the source of people’s success, I’ve found that persistence overshadows even talent as the most valued and effective resource in creating and shaping the quality of life. Most people give up a maddening five feet from their goal!” ~ Anthony Robbins, Awaken the Giant Within

“Knowing trees, I understand the meaning of patience. Knowing grass, I can appreciate persistence.” ~ Hal Borland

“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 are omnipotent. The slogan press on has solved and always will solve the problems of the human race. No person was ever honored for what he received. Honor has been the reward for what he gave.” ~ Calvin Coolidge

“Wishing will not bring riches. But desiring riches with a state of mind that becomes an obsession, then planning definite ways and means to acquire riches, and backing those plans with persistence which does not recognize failure, will bring riches.” ~ Napoleon Hill
