These kids can't sit still!

Inspiration can come from anywhere.  And positive change can be as simple as an idea implemented!

Persistence

I'm coming to the realization that PERSISTENCE is the key that separates success from failure.  It's not talent, intellect, athleticism, skill or beauty but rather persistence that pays off, in the end. 

Sometimes when I feel like I want to quit I ask myself, "What if the 'goal' was literally right around the corner and I quit short of it?"

Here's a quote from Calvin Coolidge on persistence:  "Nothing in this world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not: nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent."  #persistence, #bepersistent
