You gotta have talent. Great training can help.Â Brains and vision are crucial. And do add some sizzle to the steak…Â
Â …But thatâ€™s not enough. These elements, alone, rarely work.Â In fact, youâ€™re missing the most important ingredient.

We often give up far too easily, even when a potential winner is within our grasp.Â We donâ€™t practice enough. Â We move on after 2 or 3 e-mails go unanswered.Â We change career directions when immediate results arenâ€™t evident.Â Â Â
ButÂ success requiresÂ time, follow-through, and commitment.Â If youâ€™re not in it for the long haul, donâ€™t expect miracles.Â Â Â
Â â€œNothing in this world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful people 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 omnipotent. The slogan “press on” has solved and always will solve the problems of the human race.â€
Â Â Â Â Â -Â Â Calvin Coolidge, 30th President of the United States
