The Key: Persistence

 

I snagged this quote from Blogger Advocate Extraordinaire Sarah Bryden-Brown, and I think it's all you need to know. I think it's the very reason why you can succeed no matter the perceived obstacles. I think it's the truth.

Press on. Nothing in the world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not; there is nothing 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
