The most important quality essential to success is perseverance. It overcomes almost everything, even nature.
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.
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. And it's only over when YOU say it is.
If you've got the courage to stick it out, you'll attain your goal. Winning isn't everything, but wanting to is.
