Having willpower can be a great incentive to push harder and strive for more. It’s what gets you up after defeat or failure. That sense of resolution that helps you forge new paths on your road to success—that’s the power of persistence!

The 30th president of the US, Calvin Coolidge, described it best. In his 1932 speech, he said, “Nothing in the world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not…Genius will not…Education will not…Persistence and determination are omnipotent. The slogan ‘Press On’ has solved and always will solve the problems of the human race.”

When you persevere, you keep going even when the odds are stacked against you.
