Care enough to keep going

One attempt gets you started, and a dozen attempts show you’re serious. A hundred attempts earn respect and generate momentum, and with a thousand attempts, you’re highly likely to create lasting value.

Once is a good start but it’s almost never enough. Achievement comes more from persistence than from just about anything else.

You may not know every answer, but you can always keep going. Your strengths and skills can run into limits, but your persistence never has to.

When your first effort fails, the second effort can be quite difficult. Yet as difficult as it may be, still it is possible, and powerful.

When you persist, you keep open the path to success. When you persist, you’re able to transform disappointment into progress, misfortune into fulfillment.

Focus on meaningful purpose and persist in bringing it to life. Care enough to keep going, and you’ll arrive at some amazing places.

— Ralph Marston
