The world is full of successful people with little talent, and talented people with little success. We can find countless reasons, attribute good luck, bad luck, and timing. But as Mr. Cobbett suggests the difference may boil down to perseverance. The ability to go to work every day, day after day, fixating on details, drilling on the basics, creating a plan and working the plan.
Everyone sees the glory of success. They overlook the boring, the tedious, the drudgery, the late nights, the early mornings and countless minuscule decisions. Unfortunately, success does not come with an arrival date and time. Perseverance keeps us on task in the face of difficulties, and uncertainty. It keeps us striving when things look bleak, and we fear of ever attaining our goal.
What will you do today to bring you closer to your goal?
Keep on writing.
