“I’m convinced that about half of what separates the successful entrepreneurs from the non-successful ones is pure perseverance.” – From an interview with Steve Jobs.
Commentary: Perseverance has been a common trait among successful people in life, government and business. Keeping your eyes on the ball and not giving up is a must-have life skill.
“Nothing in the world can take the place of Persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent. The slogan ‘Press On’ has solved and always will solve the problems of the human race.” – Calvin Coolidge, 3oth President of the US.
