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.
Perseverance and determination alone will bring breakthrough.
Whatever your objective for the road ahead, it must be distinctly yours or there will be little incentive to pursue it.
If there is no sense of motivation for the said prize, there is no desire to press towards the goal.
The path forward can and should be as unique as you are...
...and zero apologies need to be made for not conforming to someone else's ideas on your life path.
This is *especially* true if those with suggestions are not either paying all your bills or living the life you desire.
What is your intention for 2021?
Set it and get it!
