“Success has many determining factors, including dumb luck. But I’ve noticed one indispensable ingredient, without which, you cannot possibly hope to succeed: that’s persistence. We’ve all seen talented, smart, and well-trained people bottom out.
Success takes something more—the willingness to keep going even when the odds are bad and our enthusiasm has waned.
President Calvin Coolidge supposedly said, ‘Nothing in the world can take the place of persistence.’ The line actually goes back even farther, but the truth is indisputable.
Persistence is essential.
