“Persistence is probably the single most common quality of high achievers,” says Jack Canfield, renowned career coach and author of the best selling book, The Success Principles. “They simple refuse to give up. The longer you hang in there, the greater the chance that something will happen in your favor…the longer you persist the more likely your success.”
Consider the wisdom embedded in these declarations by high achievers.
“Most people give up just when they’re about to achieve success. They quit on the one-yard line. They give up at the last minute of the game, one foot from the winning touchdown.” H. Ross Perot, billionaire and former presidential candidate.
“History has demonstrated that the most notable winners usually encountered heartbreaking obstacles before they triumphed. They won because they refused to become discouraged by their defeats.” B.C. Forbes, founder of Forbes magazine.
“Fall down seven times, get up eight times.” Japanese proverb.
“Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent. The slogan ‘press on’ has solved and always will solve the problems of the human race.” Calvin Coolidge, thirtieth president of the United States.
I wish you career success!
