Perseverance is a great substitute for talent.
I know that’s true.
But I can also see it in my own life too.
I mean, any blogging success I have seen has not been from a post that won some kind of critical acclaim.
It has been from simply showing up every day and shooting par.
See, while many might have some kind of natural aptitude for whatever it might be, that issue – and the amount of luck involved – is entirely outside of your control.
What you do control is how hard your work, and for how long you work.
Understand: Keep Going.
But there was a problem. At age eighteen, I had absolutely no gifts. I could not sing or dance, and the only acting I did was really just shouting. Thankfully, perseverance is a great substitute for talent.
