Several years ago I was interviewed for a business magazine. The reporter wanted to know what was the one thing that caused me to be successful. I could tell she was surprised when I responded, “persistence.”
“Persistence”, she asked?
“Yes”, I replied.
I went on to tell her I had hired those who failed who were:
- impeccable dressers
- extremely gifted in speech
- very charming
- highly educated
- gifted with personality
- highly confident.
“But, I have never hired a person who was persistent–one who did every day what she needed to do, regardless of the results of the previous day, who failed. Those who don’t quit, don’t fail. Those who choose to continue day in and day out, cross the finish line.
“Whether you think you can, or you think you can’t–you’re right.”–Henry Ford
