There is no giant leap towards success. There are only little steps of persistence that ultimately lead to success. The only difference between those who have succeeded and those who have given up half way through is persistence. If the spirit of persistence prevails in the minds of the mentally strong and determined people, they are sure to win the race and achieve their goal they have set for. Failures are the stepping stones to success. Failure may occur any number of times but it the persistence that ultimately takes us towards success. Persistence comes from motivation and motivation can be in the form of words, actions or quotes from those who have succeeded. Talent, genius, hard work, education are all the necessary ingredients to success but if persistence is absent, these ingredients will be of no help. So, read these motivating quotes on persistence and share them with others.
