Persistence

"Every great work, every big accomplishment, has been brought into manifestation through holding to the vision, and often just before the big achievement, comes apparent failure and discouragement."
~Florence Scovel Shinn

"Life is all about timing... the unreachable becomes reachable, the unavailable become available, the unattainable... attainable. Have the patience, wait it out It's all about timing."
~Stacey Charter

"It's well known in wisdom communities that delays are not denials. Remember this at all times. Keep focused on what you can do in the moment, and if there is nothing to be done - you are being taught patience. Apply yourself everyday towards your deepesdt desire - work hard, then let go. This is how mastery is attained."
 ~Jackson Kiddard

"Making your mark on the world is hard. If it were easy, everybody would do it. But it's not. It takes patience, it takes commitment, and it comes with plenty of failure along the way. The real test is not whether you avoid this failure, because you won't. it's whether you let it harden or shame you into inaction, or whether you learn from it; whether you choose to persevere."
 ~Barack Obama

"What you still need to know is this: before a dream is realized, the Soul of the World tests everything that was learned along the way. It does this not because it is evil, but so that we can, in addition to realizing our dreams, master the lessons we've learned as we've moved toward that dream. That's the point at which, as we say in the language of the desert, one 'dies of thirst just when the palm trees have appeared on the horizon. Every search begins with beginner's luck. And every search ends with the victor's being severely tested."
~Paulo Coelho – from his book The Alchemist

"The journey is filled with ups and downs. Don't confuse the two as ever being everlasting. Get up everyday and apply yourself, be authentic, trust your instincts and know that the more you apply yourself the better you get day by day. The day you are waiting for is the day you want to give up, that is when you MUST keep going. That's the barrier between normal and greatness."
~Jackson Kiddard

"Whatever obstacles appear in your path, put your head down and get past them. Those obstacles aren't real. They're just God's way of testing you.He's asking you, "Do you want to make it or not?"
~Russell Simmons

Those who are certain of the outcome can afford to wait, and wait without anxiety.
~A Course in Miracles

"Failure is not the opposite of success, it's part of success."
~Arianna Huffington

"Losers live in the past. Winners learn from the past and enjoy working in the present toward the future."
~Denis Waitley

"Fear knocked at the door and faith answered. No one was there."
~English Proverb

"In the middle of difficulty lies opportunity."
~Albert Einstein

"Opportunity often comes disguised in the form of misfortune, or temporary defeat."
~Napoleon Hill

"When you get into a tight place and everything goes against you, till it seems as though you could not hang on a minute longer, never give up then, for that is just the place and time that the tide will turn."
~Harriet Beecher Stowe

"People who make money often make mistakes, and even have major setbacks,
but they believe they will eventually prosper, and they see every setback as a lesson to be applied in their move towards success."
~Jerry Gillies

"Readiness to fall is the confidence to walk."
~Anon

"Failure is not falling down, it's staying down."
~Renee Yohe

"If I had to select one quality, one personal characteristic that I regard as being most highly correlated with success, whatever the field, I would pick the trait of persistence. Determination. The will to endure to the end, to get knocked down seventy times and get up off the floor saying, ''Here comes number seventy-one!''
~Richard M. DeVo

"Believing in yourself is an endless destination. Believing you have failed is the end of the journey."
~Anon
