“Few things are impossible to diligence and skill; great works are not performed by strength but by perseverance” – SAMUEL JOHNSON

“Every great success in your life will represent a triumph of persistence. Your ability to decide what you want, to begin, and then to persist through all obstacles and difficulties until you achieve your goals is the critical determinant of your success. And the flip side of persistence is courage.

Perhaps the greatest challenge that you will ever face in life is the conquest of fear and the development of the habit of courage. Winston Churchill once wrote, “Courage is rightly considered the foremost of the virtues, for upon it all others depend.”

Fear is, and always has been, the greatest enemy of mankind. When Franklin D. Roosevelt said, “The only thing we have to fear is fear itself”, he was saying that the emotion of fear, rather than the reality of what we fear, is what causes anxiety, stress and unhappiness.

When you develop the habit of courage and unshakable self-confidence, a whole new world of possibilities opens up for you. Just think – what would you dare to dream or be or do if you weren’t afraid of anything in the whole world?” – BRIAN TRACY, GOALS! HOW TO GET EVERYTHING YOU WANT – FASTER THAN YOU EVER THOUGHT POSSIBLE

I believe you’ve learned a thing or two from reading the quotes above. I strongly recommend you get the book by Brian Tracy on goals.

Let me know in the comments section what you have done to ensure you persist your way to success.
