Persistence & Determination are Omnipotent

Lately I have come across numerous references to the words “persistence and determination” in my readings and videos. Dan Pink has an excellent YouTube video on persistence which speaks to the huge importance of persistence. Today J.C. Maxwell’s quote on LinkedIn reads as follows:
“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 alone are omnipotent.”
I hear the stress of persistence in almost every classroom I enter as well as from most parents I encounter. Any successful business requires persistence. So should you!
