“We can do anything we want if we stick to it long enough”. You have often heard the saying: “You are closest to your victory when you face the greatest opposition”; Have a never say die attitude; Where there is a will there is a way; “One’s best success comes after their greatest disappointments”. “Most people achieved their greatest successes one step beyond what looked like their greatest failure”. “Through perseverance many people win success out of what seemed destined to be certain failure”. "Thousands of successful people did not achieve success on their first try, but they were not discouraged. They picked themselves up and went back at it with an even stronger, single minded tenacity to achieve their goal."

A young man name Thomas Edison has failed 10, 000 times before he made the electric light. Do not be discouraged if your plans do not succeed the first time. No one learns to walk by taking only one step." "Never, never, never quit!”

When the going gets tough, the tough gets going. When we are faced with overwhelming problems, the key to overcome this thing is not to give up and quit. The main idea is to push oneself harder. It is best to look the problem deeper. Try your best to not be stubborn and think of ways to overcome it. The world meets nobody halfway. When you want something, you have to take it.

The teachings of the past should never be forgotten, since the principles of how to achieve happiness and success are immutable. We don't need to waste resources making mistakes that can easily be avoided if we pay attention to History.

It is best to learn from the past. There is no other way or, even worse, that human beings are unable to learn from someone else's disgrace. You can find man's failure written in history.

Another person tried to make a living out of writing but he didn't succeed. His first book wasn't notice by people. Edgar Allan Poe still persists and become successful when he published a master piece called the raven. Since then he started writing pieces that the world would read.

Another master is Abraham Lincoln that started political career in 1832 but he lost the election when running a party member in General Assembly. He also lost the election as a senator. In 1860, he ran for the highest position in the government. He becomes the 16th president of the United States.

The thing is, we need to push ourselves so hard. The saying "when the going gets tough, the tough gets going" is taken on literal basis. If you are having some personal issues then work hard in order to keep mind off the problem. This is a good idea before you can start tackling and handling the situation.

Look ahead and decide if you like what you see. If you don't, take measures to protect yourself and improve your prospects. Waiting for the world to change is a waste of time. Make sound choices and play your cards wisely. There are plenty of things that you can do to make your future brighter.

Take time and live by the inch instead of by the yard "inch by inch it's a cinch, yard by yard it's too hard" is a great reminder for you.
