How to Avoid Being Mediocre
Step 3: Rest on persistence
To quote German genius Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe, “In the realm of ideas, everything depends on enthusiasm; in the real world, all rests on perseverance.”
I wish it were enough that you love your idea. That you think your idea is totally unique and will revolutionize the face of humanity. I wish it were, but it’s not. Why? Because real success isn’t built on warm fuzzies. It’s built by hard work and an honorable amount of persistence. And a healthy dose of of hopeless optimism doesn’t hurt either.
