When we look at successful people we realize that they have not always had it good. They have had times of great hardship and times of exceptional trials and tribulations. We call them ‘successful’ because they made it through the hard times.

Every person has the potential for success. Some recognize it and do nothing about it, some try and give up and some persist until they succeed. Make no mistake, the successful people realize that there was a price to pay for their achievements.

“So long as there is breath in me, that long I will persist. For now I know one of the greatest principles on success; if I persist long enough I will win.” Og Mandino

If we keep believing and keep persisting we will win through! A race is a strategy and if we give up at any point we have no chance of crossing the finishing line. Life is a series of races every day and we need to put on our gear and get going hard though it may be.

We have breath and life and procrastinating and worrying stops us from moving forward. Ray Croc who made McDonalds a worldwide name did not finish school, yet through hard work won through. Behind his desk he had a plaque which stated that “persistence and determination” are omnipotent”.

So today, persist! You have life and breath and don’t give up!

Have a good day today!
