Total Commitment

Never give up!

 Nothing in the world can take the place of persistence.  Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with great talent.  Genius will not.  Unrewarded genius is almost a proverb.  Education will not.  The world is full of educated derelicts.  Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent.

~ Calvin Coolidge

To truly succeed requires a total commitment to your goal.  Too many people make the mistake of quitting just short of success.  Keep going no matter what.  If you really believe in what you are doing, give it all you got and don’t give up.  You will succeed.  Remember that every action, every choice produces an outcome. If you monitor the results of your actions and choices, and keep correcting what is not working or what you can do better, you will eventually produce the outcome you are looking for.
