Here’s a mid week motivational video on persistence which is so vitally important to our success. Enjoy.
I first listened to this motivation video two days ago. This one is really good. He talks about different things and he mentions how a lot of us praise everyone else. But a lot of us don’t get Happy for ourselves. A lot of us wait for others to pat us on the back. But…don’t wanna give it away. Take a listen.
This is a great book to read about learning more and expanding what’s possible for yourself. So throw on some headphones and enjoy.
“Patience is waiting. Not passively waiting. That is laziness. But to keep going when the going is hard and slow – that is patience.”
The price of success is hard work, dedication to the job at hand, and the determination that whether we win or lose, we have applied the best of ourselves to the task at hand.
We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act, but a habit.
First forget inspiration. Habit is more dependable. Habit will sustain you whether you’re inspired or not. Habit will help you finish and polish your stories. Inspiration won’t. Habit is persistence in practice.”
― Octavia E. Butler, Bloodchild and Other Stories
A quote by Octavia E. Butler
Nothing in this 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.
