John Maxwell spoke today about the word “Persistence”.

You can watch the video here:

Successful people, as John said, truly understand the word “Persistence”.

Many people who could be very successful …the people with the gifts, the opportunity  and the talent ….are not successful because they quit too soon.

John tells the story of a time early in his career where he opened his dictionary to the letter “Q” , went to the word “quit” and cut it out of his dictionary.

He left the book open to that page and every time he became discouraged, he back to that page and told himself that he had cut the word “quit” out of his dictionary…there would be no quitting…quitting was not an option.


If you are consistent and persistent, you will be successful.  As John mentioned, the smartest people don’t necessarily become successful.  The fastest people don’t always win.

The people who are successful do not let circumstances overwhelm them and force them to quit.  They don’t let conditions control their attitude.  They determine to be in control of their destiny.

You  could be inches from success but if you determine to quit now you might just as well be miles from achieving your goal.

ittclose to success and quit

As John said, “When you quit, quitting is no respecter of the time you put in, the money you’ve put in or the energy you have devoted to succeeding.  When you quit – you quit.  It’s all lost. “

It’s a New Year …resolve to be Persistent and remember:

“Life has two rules: #1 Never quit! #2 Always remember rule # 1.” – Unknown
