When you persist

Persist, and one small effort builds upon another. Persist, and time works in your favor.

Persist, and what was once impossible becomes commonplace. Persist, and what was once out of reach will come to you in remarkable abundance.

Persist when events turn against you, and you’ll steadily put things back in your favor. Persist when there’s every reason to stop going, and the rewards will be even bigger than you can imagine.

Where you start matters not much at all. How much you persist is what makes the real difference.

To persist you don’t need any special skill or knowledge. The main thing it takes is desire.

You can persist when there’s reason enough. And somewhere in your life, you know right now, is that reason.

— Ralph Marston
