The Characteristic Every Successful Person Possesses

Do you know what characteristic every successful person has?

Persistence.

That’s one of the things that separates winners from losers. Persistence fuels the energy to keep you moving towards that goal.

My little God-daughter, Emma, is the epitome of persistence. When you tell her “No”, she will keep asking over and over and over and over until you say “Yes”. I once watched Emma ask her mom to buy her something - I believe it was a Hello Kitty purse - for one whole day. I could have easily bought the thing she wanted, but I was curious to see how long Emma could persist before her mom eventually gave in to her pleading. Needless to say, Emma is very good at manifesting what she wants.

How about you? Are you persistent? Do you keep going when people tell you that you can’t do it or it’s “impossible”? Do you follow inspiration when it calls or do you listen to what people think you should do?

“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.
Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts.
Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent.” --Calvin Coolidge
