Determination that just won’t quit — that’s what it takes.
Nothing great will ever be achieved without great men, and men are great only if they are determined to be so.
The thing that contributes to anyone’s reaching the goal he wants is simply wanting that goal badly enough.
No man can fight his way to the top and stay at the top without exercising the fullest measure of grit, courage, determination, resolution. Every man who gets anywhere does so because he has first firmly resolved to progress in the world and then has enough stick-to-it-tiveness to transform his resolution into reality. Without resolution, no man can win any worthwhile place among his fellow men.
The wayside of business is full of brilliant men who started out with a spurt, and lacked the stamina to finish. Their places were taken by patient and unshowy plodders who never knew when to quit.
The longer I live, the more I am certain that the great difference between the great and the insignificant, is energy — invincible determination — a purpose once fixed, and then death or victory.
Once while a man was hoeing his garden, he was asked, “What would you do it you were suddenly to learn that you were to die at sunset today?” He replied, “I would finish hoeing my garden.”
Construct your Determination with Sustained Effort, Controlled Attention, and Concentrated Energy. opportunities never come to those who wait…they are captured by those who dare to attack with victory minded concentration.
