Nothing in this world can take the place of Persistance.
Talent will not; nothing is more commonplace than unsuccessful men with talent.
Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb.
Education alone will not; the world is full of educated derelicts.
Persistance and Determination alone are omnipotent.
– Calvin Coolidge
Isn’t that a wonderful messsage? Persistance is the key. You might not be the most talented, a genius, have the “right” education… but none of those things in itself is the key to success. It is true isn’t it? So when we tell ourselves that we don’t have what it takes to reach our dreams, when we compare to others and say “I don’t have the education” or “They are so much more talented,” we need to stop and remember this message:
“Persistance and Determination alone are omnipotent.”
And continue working onward, upward toward our dreams.
P.S. Today is one of those “out of the blue” blog posts, that I find myself drawn to writing instead of what was planned. Maybe I’ll be inspired to write about Oktoberfest tomorrow. 🙂
