The Principles of Success

I will Persist, I will Persist,I will Persist

The one and only principle of success that keeps the successful on the successful path is persistence

No beast, no plant, no wind, no rain, no rock, no lake had the same beginning as I, for I was conceived in love and brought forth with a purpose. Thus I was not delivered unto this world in defeat; I am not a sheep waiting to be slaughtered. I am a lion and I refuse to fail.

The Principles of Success


The prizes of the race are at the end of the competition, not at the beginning. Thus the prize of life is at the end of the journey

I will always take another step, and if that does not give me success, I will take another and another and yet another. I will never consider defeat and from my vocabulary I will remove words such as quit, cannot, unable, impossible…I will avoid despair, but if I despaired then I will work on in despair

I will toil, I will endure, and I will ignore the obstacles at my feet. I will persist with knowledge that each misfortune I encounter will carry in it the seed of tomorrow’s good luck. T must fail often to succeed only once

I will try, I will try, I will try.I will persist, I will persist, I will persist. So long as I live, that long will I persist. For I know one of the greatest principles of success is; if I persist log enough I will win
