“No one ever achieved a goal by being interested in its achievement. One must be committed. In fact, in studying the source of people’s success, I’ve found that persistence overshadows even talent as the most valued and effective resource in creating and shaping the quality of life. Most people give up a maddening five feet from their goal!”
The literature is filled with examples of people who were motivated more by their ideals than on the actual achievement of a particular goal. Dig deep to understand what drives you and what defines your character. Determine what is worth fighting for and put yourself in situations where you can make a difference through your efforts. More than half the battle is determining what to fight for. It is in this personal understanding that you will find the energy and courage to persistently move forward despite obstacles and failures.
