“Nothing in this world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not: nothing is more common than unsuccessful men 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 inevitable” – Calvin Coolidge.

Persistency is the firmness of purpose, the quality of being determined to do or achieve something.

At such a time like this, there is a need to be persistent in what one is doing, particularly the one that matters to our future and the attainment of our goals.

Many are the distractions of the 21st century, but your level of persistence and determination will be your guild as well as instruments of caution.

Irrespective of your field or profession it is pertinent to have an unshakable mindset as far as making meaning out of your life is a concern.

For instance, a football club will never be regarded as champion if it only wins a single match or two in a whole season. But a team becomes a champion through persistent winning and ability to scale through difficult matches.

One of the realities of life is that no good thing ever comes cheap, because at the counter of success the price must be paid and be paid in full.

Dear reader, there is no gain in giving up, rather determination and your willingness to remain persistent will earn you unquestionable relevance and victory – One of the secrets of champions is persistency.

Activate the power of persistence in you, look at your mirror daily and say to yourself that which you desire and with confidence repeat continuously that you will never give up, no matter the circumstances you may find yourself.

We have a few days to go in 2019, you can still achieve something meaningful only if you don’t give up.


In conclusion, there is power in Persistence and determination, remain committed to your goal and objective, you will become a champion soonest.

Thank you for reading through.
