 because your SUCCESS matters...

Self-Talk: I Persist Until I Succeed


I was not delivered unto this world in defeat, nor does failure course in my veins. I am not a sheep waiting to be prodded by my shepherd. I am a lion and I refuse to talk, to walk, to sleep with the sheep. I hear not those who weep and complain, for their disease is contagious. Let them join the sheep. The slaughterhouse of failure is not my destiny.




The prizes of life are at the end of each journey, not near the beginning; and it is not given to me to know how many steps are necessary in order to reach my goal. Failure I may still encounter at the thousandth step, yet success hides behind the next bend in the road. Never will I know how close it lies unless I turn the corner.


I always take another step. If that is of no avail I take another, and yet another. I am determined to keep on keeping on




I always try, and try, and try again. Each obstacle I consider as a mere detour to my goal and a challenge to my profession. I persist and develop my skills as the mariner develops his, by learning to ride out the wrath of each storm.




~Based on the teachings of Og Mandino in The Greatest Salesman In The World
