If you hear a voice within you say, "You cannot paint" then by all means paint and that voice will be silenced.

Purposeful power of persistence

Do something once, and you learn how it’s done. Do it again and you begin to build some real skill.

Repeat the action a third time, and suddenly you’ve gained some confidence. The fourth time around, you’ll start finding ways to be much more effective.

There are plenty of people who take action and yet never seem to achieve. That’s because they give up after only one or two attempts.

Persistence is the reliable path to whatever it is you seek. Because persistence compels you to fully understand why you have chosen to achieve your objective.

When you solidly connect to the reason why, no mere obstacle can stop you. Act, and act, and act again, and you’ll feel the purposeful power of persistence start to take hold.

Persistence is how you prove to yourself that there is a sincere purpose in what you seek. Persist, and you do indeed make it real.
