I’ve halted “Across the Land” three times. I hardly missed a lick, and was at it again. I’ve struggled. I’m still here! It’s okay to struggle. It must be, because I do it. It must be okay to quit, because I’ve done that. It must be okay to fail, because I’ve done that. I’m still here. Persistence is a trait I surely have. If I sense importance, I Keep Going. I don’t rely on anyone for that decision. I trust me most. I care much about the people being affected by alzheimer’s disease. I am helping in a worthwhile cause.
I’ve had something really cool happen to me. I finally really believe in myself.
Did someone hand me the post it note and that changed my world? Nope.
I realized, well, I will let this quote say it for me.
“Nothing in this 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.” Calvin Coolidge
