An overnight success? Get rich quick? Instant gratification? We live in an instant era; we want it now. We don’t really want to take the ‘seeds,’ we want the flowers. The truth is, the path of persistence pays. Never give up on what you really know you should do. Failure is waiting on the path of least persistence. The ‘man of the hour’ spent many days and nights getting there.
Consider the man who said, “My overnight success was the longest night of my life.” The truth is an overnight success takes about ten years. Most people don’t realize how close they are to success when they quit. Remember, stopping at third base adds no more score than striking out. When you’re persistent, it’s proof you have not been defeated.
Mike Murdock says, “You have no right to anything you have not pursued. For the proof of desire is in its pursuit.” http://jetessaywriter.com/
Life holds no greater wealth than that of steadfast commitment. It cannot be robbed from you. Only you can lose it by your will. The secret of success is to start from scratch and keep on scratching. We evaluate people by what they finish, not by what they start. People do not fail, they just quit too soon.
