Taking Steps to Reach Your Goals — Daily Quote

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. We must find 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 decisions over minuscule details. Unfortunately, success does not come with a guaranteed arrival date. Perseverance keeps us on task in the face of difficulties and uncertainty. It keeps us striving when things look bleak, and when we fear we may never attain our goals.

What will you do today to bring you closer to your goal?


Keep on writing.
