Motivational Thoughts on Perseverance



If you don't make a total commitment to whatever you're doing, then you start looking to bail out the first time the boat starts leaking. It's tough enough getting that boat to shore with everybody rowing, let alone when a guy stands up and starts putting his jacket on.
-- Lou Holtz

There is no mistake so great as the mistake of not going on.
-- William Blake

Heroism consists of hanging on one minute longer.
-- Norwegian Proverb

It's hard to beat a person who never gives up.
-- Babe Ruth

Sometimes love has its ups and downs. Mostly though, there are more ups than downs and true love will weather any storm.
-- K. Lytestone

Patience and perseverance have a magical effect before which difficulties disappear and obstacles vanish.
-- John Quincy Adams

Fall down seven times, get up eight.
-- Japanese Proverb

Success seems to be largely a matter of hanging on after others have let go.
-- William Feather

The temptation when the path to success gets too bumpy is to leap back into the comfort zone. Don't. Keep pushing forward, always forward. The comfort zone is the land of dreams and wishes. Success is the land of results, where all those dreams come true.
-- Mark Burnett

Success can only be achieved through repeated failure and introspection. In fact, success represents 1 percent of your work, which results from the 99 percent that is called failure.
-- Soichiro Honda

Diamonds are nothing more than chunks of coal that stuck to their jobs.
-- Malcolm Forbes

He that can't endure the bad will not live to see the good.
-- Yiddish Proverb

The first part of success is "Get-to-it-iveness"; the second part of success is "Stick-to-it-iveness."
-- Orison Swett Marden

I play to win even when common sense should tell me that I no longer have a chance. Even when I have been playing at my worst, or when all the breaks have been going against me, I approach each new day, each new hole, as a glorious opportunity to get going again.
-- Arnold Palmer

Never confuse a single mistake with a final mistake.
-- F. Scott Fitzgerald

Perseverance is not a long race; it is many short races one after another.
-- Unknown Author
