As the simple saying goes, “If at first you don’t succeed, try, try again.” Taking the first step can sometimes be the hardest. Unfortunately, the first step may not be the one that sets everything into motion. Oftentimes, it requires being persistent.
Whatever you do, don’t sell yourself short. Don’t take the first step and then be discouraged if things don’t immediately start coming together. Keep pressing on.
Sometimes, you need to not take no for an answer. Sometimes, you need to be the one who keeps on keeping on. Don’t be a quitter. Anyone can be a quitter. Be the person people can count on for going the extra mile.
I’ve found time and time again that things don’t always work on the first attempt. Sometimes, you’ve got to learn from past failures to create future success. Sometimes, you’ve got to be the person who just won’t give up.
Be persistent in the small things. Be persistent in the big things. Be persistent when it’s easy. Be persistent when it seems impossible, because while you’re busy being persistent someone else is busy giving up.
