Some times, everything goes according to plan. Other times, life feels overwhelming.

Remarkable leaders certainly must feel like giving up at times, but they persevere and often inspire their team to greater successes.


Perseverance and Practice

No matter how talented people are, there is no success without perseverance. Tenacity is not an issue of talent nor is it limited by time. It’s simply about practicing and finishing.

Practice isn’t the thing you do once you’re good. It’s the thing that makes you good. (Gladwell)

In So Good They Can't Ignore You, author Cal Newport debunks the notion that we should follow our passions, arguing that passion is the result of putting in the hard work to excel at something valuable.

Remarkably successful people are experts at practicing. They have the ability to push themselves to the limits of their skillsets, growing their talents and impact day after day.

Success is a little like wrestling a gorilla. You don’t quit when you’re tired—you quit when the gorilla is tired. (Robert Strauss)

Highly successful people are also incredibly tenacious. They imagine and follow through, viewing obstacles and tough times as part of life, and not barriers to success. 

If we want to offer a gift to the world that is meaningful and make life better for our future self, we need to practice, persevere, and leave a wake that inspires others to do the same.
