If you give up after the first or second attempt, your level of success will be mediocre at best. When you persist for as long as it takes, you're able to create magnificent, outstanding achievements.
Persistence is not a complicated or inaccessible strategy. All you have to do is choose to keep going.
After a successful day, instead of resting on your accomplishments, keep going. After a disappointing day, instead of wallowing in self pity, keep going.
Persist, and the small steps forward add together to create great advances. Persist, and even the setbacks will eventually work in your favor.
Set your sights on a worthy, meaningful goal, and persist. With persistence, you can take yourself anywhere you choose.
