Success is connected with continuous action. It's largely a matter of hanging on after others have let go. You're not finished when you're defeated, you're only finished when you quit.
The most important quality essential to success is perseverance. It overcomes almost everything, even nature.
You can have a fresh start any time you choose, for "failure" is not in the falling down, but in the staying down. It's not over until it's over.
Winning isn't everything, but wanting to is. If you've got the courage to stick it out, you'll attain your goal.
