The Power of Persistence

When nothing seems to help, I go and look at a stonecutter hammering away at his rock, perhaps a hundred times without as
much as a crack showing in it. Yet at the hundred and first blow it will split in two, and I know it was not that last blow that did it, but all that had gone before.
Jacob A. Riis

This quotation reminds us that being successful doesn’t mean we have to be perfect or get everything we want immediately.

What is important is that we keep trying, learn from our mistakes, and keep going even if things are tough.
