Nothing 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 ~ Calvin Coolidge
What is your dream? Did you stick to your dream when you grew up? Or you became just another person serving to the circumstances that are created for you?
Let us first see this video and then discuss it:
Did you like the video? As you could see, there is this little girl who is passionate about twirling in a pink tutu, she loves ballet and her grandmother is always there to support her. That’s what pretty much happens in everyone’s life, we just react differently to almost the same stories.
“The two most powerful warriors are patience and time.” ~ Leo N. Tolstoy
Whether your dream is to become a doctor, a famous athlete or an English teacher, history has proved that you have to work hard on your dreams and be persistent in order to make them come true. I know life might be hard and sometimes all you have is that fire inside you, only yourself’s support but sacrificing your time for something you love doing is totally worthy when you look into the big picture.
Getting back to the little girl in the video, she became stronger and stronger with practice. The little girl grew up, she was not little anymore. She attended a National competition and you know what? She won it.
Although evil forces are all around, trying to stop her, she DOESN’T PAY attention to any of them. She fought like a beast and it didn’t matter that her dress was torn apart she could do her dancing even without it, wearing something else. Nobody can invade your mind and passion inside of you, right?
Fight the obstacles, beat those low financial incomes, surpass the everyday struggles, prove wrong those negative people saying that you can’t do it because it will pay off by the end.
