As long as it takes

What if you knew that you could reach your goal by taking just one more step? Would you take that step?

At some point in the process of achievement, the final hurdle is reached. What a shame it would be to stop just short of that one last obstacle.

Achievement does not require extraordinary ability. Achievement comes from ordinary abilities applied with extraordinary persistence.

You already know you can do what it takes. To reach any goal, simply do what it takes for as long as it takes.

It’s really not that difficult to take just one step, to do just a single task, to make one bit of progress. And if you can do it once, you can do it again, and again, and again without much problem.

Keep the faith and keep up the effort. Your persistence will get you there.
