We all have dreams and have great plans to achieve them.  Unfortunately, when life’s hardship knocks us out, we give up after just a few attempts.  I have learned that if we really want something, we must be patient and we must persevere.

No matter how many mistakes you make or how slow you progress, you are still way ahead of everyone who is not trying. Tony Robbins

With ordinary talent and extraordinary perseverance, all things are attainable, Thomas Fowell Buxton.

Great works are performed not by strength but by perseverance. Samuel Johnson

There are days where I really feel like giving up.  Like everyone else, I am only human, and I remember Dale Carnegie ’quote: “Most of the important things in the world have been accomplished by people who have kept on trying when there seems to be no hope at all”.  I shake off all that negative energy and start doing the things that bring me joy, like my blog and cooking.

I am still trying and learning.  I am not where I want to be, but I have hope that I will reach that level with perseverance, hard work, and dedication.

The key to success is action and the essential in action is perseverance.  Sun Yat-sen

The will to persevere is often the difference between failure and success.  David Sarnoff

As we are starting this new week, I hope you go back to your dreams and feed them with hope, actions, and perseverance.
