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.
J. Calvin Coolidge,
30th President of the United States of America
In all the stories of success there is a moment when they decided to keep going.
Despite the odds and obstacles they pressed on.
I think the key to being able to press on is having big goals.
Big goals pull you through the problems you will inevitably face along the way.
Make sure you have big goals for yourself. Make sure it is big enough that you are almost embarrassed to say it out loud to your closest friend.
Make it a great day.
