"Persistence is the ability to maintain actions regardless of your feelings. You press on even when you feel like quitting. When you work on any big goal your motivation will wax and wane like the waves hitting the shore. Sometimes youíll feel motivated, sometimes you wonít.

Persistence allows you to keep taking action even when you donít feel motivated to do so, and therefore you keep accumulating results. Persistence will ultimately provide its own motivation. If you simply keep taking action, youíll eventually get results, and results can be very motivating." - Zig Ziglar
