Tuesday's Tip:: Persistence


According to Webster’s Dictionary, being persistent means existing for a long or longer than usual time. When it comes to creating and building your own business, persistence is one of those words of advice that keeps popping up.

Be persistent. Stay focused. Do not give up. Sometimes easier said than done, right? I’ll be the first to tell you that persistence isn’t always the easiest virtue to possess. But, if you stay strong and weather the storms, I firmly believe they will pass and you will reach your reward at the end.

Success doesn’t happen overnight for most of us. So, what do we have to gain by being persistent? Each day that you work to further your business you learn more, meet new contacts and gain credibility. You aren’t working for nothing, even though it may seem like it at times.

If you don’t believe in yourself, how can you expect others to believe in you?

This is a great quote from our 30th President of The United States, Calvin Coolidge::
"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 are omnipotent."
