Yes, you can! Never give up believing in yourself. Whenever you doubt yourself, rememberThe difference between a successful person and others is not a lack of strength, not a lack of knowledge, but rather a lack of will” -Vince Lombardi. Nothing in the world can take the place of persistence. Yes, talent will help. However talent will not provide everything you need to be successful; nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent. Yes, being smart helps. However, genius will not help you conquer all; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Yes, being educated will help but it will not provide the answer to everything; the world is full of educated derelicts.

The key to success is persistence and determination alone are omnipotent. One of the commonest mistakes and one of the costliest is thinking that success is due to some genius, some magic – something or other which we do not possess. Success is generally due to holding on, and failure to letting go. You decide to learn a language, study music, take a course of reading, train yourself physically. Will it be success or failure? It depends upon how much pluck and perseverance that word “decide” contains. The decision that nothing can overrule, the grip that nothing can detach will bring success. Remember the Chinese proverb, “With time and patience, the mulberry leaf becomes satin.” Every one of us can make a big difference if we only choose to believe in ourselves and never give up. Please help to spread some inspiration so that both individually and collectively we might more fully live up to our potential.

Always,

Teryn
