More Important than Talent, Training, Intellect, and Good Looks…

You gotta have talent. Great training can help.  Brains and vision are crucial. And do add some sizzle to the steak… 

 …But that’s not enough. These elements, alone, rarely work.  In fact, you’re missing the most important ingredient.

  P E R S I S T E N C E

We often give up far too easily, even when a potential winner is within our grasp.  We don’t practice enough.  We move on after 2 or 3 e-mails go unanswered.  We change career directions when immediate results aren’t evident.    

But success requires time, follow-through, and commitment.  If you’re not in it for the long haul, don’t expect miracles.    

 “Nothing in this world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful people 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, 30th President of the United States
