Persistence creates successful living

The 30th President of the USA was Calvin Coolidge. One of his quotes is sobering.

“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.

The best life coaches will say the same thing in a different way. Persistence pays off! In fact if the founders/owners of the Temple Companies had not been persistent in overcoming challenges, you wouldn’t be enjoying your lifestyle at Summerfields Friendly Village as you read this. It’s very likely you have enjoyed success in your life through your own persistence. History has demonstrated that some of the smartest people in the world have failed because they lost the sense of persistence.

“Success is about persistence. You can only afford to be persistent in something you deeply enjoy.” Cenk Uygur

Uygar hits the nail on the head. Persistence works when it’s driven by passion and purpose in something that means everything to you. Persistence, fueled that way is the single most effective strategy to outperform the toughest competitors you’ll ever face in any category of life. But persistence, as they say—“Ain’t Easy!” That’s why whatever you’re wanting to achieve, you’d better be in in love with it, passionate about it and willing to go the distance to see it come to pass. Persistence outruns luck and leaves the lazy way behind.

Colonel Sanders of Kentucky Fried Chicken fame faced 1,009 rejections before he finally succeeded with his restaurant concept. And he was already 65 years old. Most people are thinking retirement, but not the Colonel and not those who are driven with a purpose.

Steven Spielberg’ cinematic career work grossed over $9 billion, He won three Oscars. but the University of Southern California’s School of Cinematic Arts rejected him several times. They later built a wing in honor of him.
