31 Days of Motivation: Persistence is Powerful

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

you are a champion

TD Jakes once said (in a church service) “there is probably more talent in this audience than is on this stage, but they lack commitment”. I think of all the people I know who could have been pro athletes or music super stars, but are secret hidden talents because they lacked commitment and persistence.

Some of the best champions are not THE best, they are just the ones that refuse to give up – and the same goes with fitness. There are people who are in the gym DAILY and trying to watch what they eat DAILY – and even though they fail, their determination not quit brings them to success eventually. Better yet, they can be MORE successful than the toughest chick in the gym, or the most disciplined competitor, IF they are more consistent and committed.

BE ENCOURAGED!! Persistence trumps one day of strength. Never give up.

  1. Love your message here. I second it 🙂

    Thanks for the great post!

  2. Good post. It is funny becuase in my life I have seen so called talented people quit when things get tough. Whereas people who may struggle with a concept, habit or move that are determined conquer even the toughest challenges to them. Everyone struggles with something, so we just need to be encouraged- learn from our mistakes and press on!

  3. My spouse and I stumbled over here from a different website and thought I should check things out.

    I like what I see so i am just following you. Look forward to looking over your web page again.

  4. I would like to thank you for the efforts you have put in writing this blog.
    I’m hoping to check out the same high-grade content from you
    in the future as well. In truth, your creative
    writing abilities has encouraged me to get my own, personal website now
    😉
