Persistent enough

Expect the best, and if it does not come, expect the best again. Your positive expectations will indeed pay off, when they are persistent enough.

Learn from your mistakes, and if that leads to more mistakes, learn from those as well. You are sure to find what works, when you are persistent enough. Give all you have to the effort, and if it doesn’t bring the results you want, give all you have again. The achievement you seek is going to happen, when you are persistent enough.

Meaningful persistence is not a sometime thing, on one day and off the next. The persistence that gets you where you want is the persistence that continues until the goal is reached. No one can say before you begin just what the measure of that persistence must be. Yet it’s clear to see that what truly works is when persistence persists as long as it takes.

What you seek is yours when what you contribute is the will to keep going. Reach for your dreams and see them come true by being persistent enough.
