The highest reward for a person's toil is not what they get for it but what they become by it.

Persistence is

Anyone can have persistence. It requires no special skill.There’s nothing to it really. Persistence is as simple as putting one foot in front of another.

Yes, you’ll probably stumble every once in a while. And yes, you could let that stop you.

Or you could simply get back up, learn from your mistakes, and keep on going, with even more determination than before. Persistence is a choice you are always free to make.

Your mind will sometimes fill with doubts, excuses, and reasons to quit. Persistence is a matter of letting them go, as you move on ahead and leave them behind.

Where do you want to go? Persistence will take you there.
