Persistence Is Key

Posted on by Brian Hertzog

"Every journey begins with a single step".  Persistence is key.  Step by step.  One foot in front of the other.

The Grand Canyon was carved from the Colorado River, over millions of years.  One stream at a time.  The pyramids were built block by block.  The secret to winning is not always defeating the opponent, but not giving up.  When you arm-wrestle, the battle is initially even, then after a few seconds, someone caves.  The game is over.

If you want to build something as remarkable as the Grand Canyon, it wont happen in an instant.  You need persistence.  Stone by stone, chip by chip, step by step.

The key to greatness is persistence.  Stick with it.  Don't be the first to give up.  Time is often portrayed as the enemy, but time should be your friend.  You don't need to build the pyramids over night!  You just need to move one block.  Over time, you will have a pyramid.  The key is persistence.
