Nothing in the world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful men 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

Have you noticed that successful people in life are not quitters, but they press on…. sometimes they might have to alter their plan along the way, maybe that is because of the old adage that the map is not the territory, and things emerge as you hit the ground.

I’m also not ashamed to use some mixed metaphors here, so it can also be like getting to the finish line in a yacht race, you know where the finish line is, but you need to, zig and zag, you simply can’t get there in a straight line, and you need to read the breeze and make adjustments to your course along the way to account for shifts in it.

Ultimately if you press on, you get there!

What is the best thing you have achieved by pressing on? Leave your comments to let me know.
