I love how the Internet is a wealth of information. I love reading inspirational quotes and statements from those who have gone before me and 'made it happen'. There are also plenty of current references of inspiration on-line too, people really putting themselves out there and never giving up. It is one thing take "advice" of a friend who has never been there but it is quite another from a motivational perspective to take the advice that has been left behind by those who have really walked the walk.
This statement really resonated with me yesterday and as always I am compelled to share.
“Nothing in the 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 are omnipotent. The slogan ‘press on’ has solved and always will solve the problems of the human race.” ~ President Calvin Coolidge (30th President of the USA) - Thanks to Women on The Fence for sharing this statement yesterday via FB.
Regardless of your current situation what really counts is that you KEEP MOVING FORWARD, never give up or quitting! Know that it is ok to take a break sometimes from the relentless pursuit of your dreams and visions to reevaluate, catch your breath or re-focus = but to STOP completely is never an option. You owe it to yourself to live the life you have always wanted.
To stay motivated and remain persistent is not an easy task, but it can be your daily CHOICE!
