10  Harsh Realities That Help You Grow

My first mentor told me that success is ten percent innovation, and ninety percent perspiration.  Not giving up, is key to success.  Sometimes the people who hang around and keep on plugging ahead, are the ones who often get the big break, even though they may not do the best work, or have the most talent.

Persistence is the single most common characteristic of high achievers.  They simply refuse to give up.  The longer you hang in there, the greater the chance that something will happen in your favor.  Success is the good fortune that comes from aspiration, desperation, perspiration and inspiration.  No matter how hard it seems, the more you persist, the more likely your success.
