The Power of Persistence – Pushing through the Mantra

The key to one’s success in life is an absolute refusal to quit. Persistence, you see, usually pays off. Persistence most often pays off. Persistence damn well had better pay off!

The Trifextra challenge for this weekend is to follow the structure from James’ quote below, with a max 33 word limit:

Three things in human life are important. The first is to be kind. The second is to be kind. And the third is to be kind. –Henry James

I’m especially fond of James’ quote and wish more folks would live by it. As for my copycat version, it requires folks simply to keep living at all as the main criteria to meet its mark.

  1. This reminds me of the old saw, “If at first you don’t succeed, try, try again.” Persistence is a great character builder too. Struggling to pass chemistry in college taught me the value of both;) Wise words, you’ve written!

  2. Someone once said nothing of great value comes easily. I’m reminded of this and how persistence is what often makes the difference between success or failure. Nice job.
