An insight into the system of creation reveals that… Every being, you and I inclusive, that comes into existence develops and grows in struggle and adversity… right from the first day of its life until when it hits the highest point of perfection. It’s a well established norm of nature that rules… over all.

Every person is thus inclined to select the shortest path to success and to get result from its effort as soon as possible. This is the way we are…all, ABSOLUTELY. Well, as you and I know…In any kind of undertaking, one cannot shorten his path to success without…patience, persistence and determination and reach the desired objective. There is NO possibility of progress and/or success without this moral virtue. To quote Calvin Coolidge:

“Nothing in this world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful people with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent. The slogan “press on” has solved and always will solve the problems of the human race.”

Anyone who desires to achieve success in any undertaking, whether he is a man of ordinary talents or someone endowed with exceptional creativity, will power, intelligence and genius… must cultivate persistence and determination.


A great task is NEVER accomplished instantaneously and spontaneously. Rather… An enormous amount of ENERGY, in any of its form, and TIME is required to bring them to fruition. While there are some who languish behind the caravan of life, you’ll observe some others achieve remarkable success.

The basic difference between these two sets of people lies in the QUALITY of their efforts and the EXTENT of their steadfastness, persistence and determination. Think of anything at all…? WHY WAIT. Your success is determined by YOU and ONLY you. Be patient, persistent, and determined… Success is SURE to come.
