The secret to success

I've been reading a book on winning by Dr. Saul Miller, "Why Teams Win".  I came across a saying I've kept close to heart that's attributed to Calvin Coolidge:  
"Nothing in this world can take the place of persistence.  Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb.  Education will not;  the world is full of educated derelicts.  Persistence and determination are omnipotent.  The slogan, 'press on' has solved and always will solve the problems of the human race".
I stopped reading and went to my wallet to find a well worn slip of paper folded over multiple times.  I got if from my Grandfather over 30 years ago when I was talking to him about how to advance my career.  He was quite blunt, "People succeed by never EVER giving up". Then he gave me the quote from Calvin Coolidge that I've kept ever since.

"Persistence". "Perserverence". Each of us is talented...Winners never EVER give up!
