You need persistence to succeed in life. Absolutely no question about that. You are going to face barriers and obstacles, no matter what you are trying to achieve, and you just have to push yourself through this.

But persistence, in itself, does not guarantee success. If you are doing the wrong things persistently, it isn’t going to work out for you, no matter how determined you are.

You can do the wrong things as much as you want and for as long as you want, and you will be as far away from success as when you started. If not further.


When all is said and done, unless your heart is truly called to it, all your persistence will be to little effect.
