The Power of Persistence

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

Nothing can stop a man or a woman of determination. However, your determination must be garnished with persistence to continue pushing when you’re tempted to quit in the face of uncertainties and difficulties.

You must regard failure as an opportunity to extract actionable insights, learn, and advance toward your goal more intelligently.

Focus On Possibilities

“When you focus on problems, you get more problems. When you focus on possibilities, you have more opportunities.”Zig Ziglar

From my experience, this is so true. Such a mindset draws your energy and attention to the problems with a focus on complaining, rather than accepting the realities and chosing to device a response mechanism that is solution oriented.

Critical thinking and creative problem solving skills are things everyone should hone. Life doesn’t get any easier, and if you choose the broad road of whining, complaining, and blaming everyone else but yourself, then you won’t go far.

Accepting that challenges or as I like to call them “character building opportunities” are a part of our journey as human beings will help you embrace them with the mindset of not to shy away but face them head-on.

Decide today to focus all your energy and drive on facing and solving the challenges life has placed on your path, because, they are your growth opportunities. If you dont work it out, no one will, and advancement will only be a dream that cannot be.
