“In the confrontation between the stream and the rock, the stream always wins – not through strength, but through persistence.”
—The Buddha, Indian Spiritual Teacher
Most of my elementary school teachers would have described me as an average-to-good student with a bit of an attention problem.
Starting in the eight grade, I realized that although I was average-to-good on the standardized tests, I was able to outwork others to achieve what I wanted.
This “magic quality” has been a key to success throughout my life.
Where can you apply the power of persistence to outwork others and achieve your goals?
