“Perseverance is the hard work you do after you get tired of doing the hard work you already did.”
Newt Gingrich

I could not agree more with Gingrich’s definition. Ideas are not easy but motivation can easily fuel them. However, motivation wanes with time and if ideas do not succeed by then, they are dropped in the graveyard of obscurity. Only persistence can keep them nourished in adverse conditions of failure. I hope the above image and quote and these little words of mine will help revive few of those starving ideas from back of your mind.

  

Victory lies in the perspective

It’s not the critic who counts, not the man who points out how the strong man stumbled, or when the doer of deeds could have done better.

The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena; whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs and comes short again and again; who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotions and spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best, knows in the end the triumph of high achievement;

and who at the worst if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who know neither victory or defeat.

Theodore Roosevelt
