Making our mark on the world is hard. It takes patience, commitment and it comes with plenty of failure along the way. The real test is not whether we avoid this failure but whether we learn from it or whether we choose to persevere. Success is almost totally dependent upon our drive and persistence. The extra energy required to make another effort or try another approach is the secret of winning.

The price of success is dedication, hard work and devotion to the things we want to see happen. Some people give up when they have almost reached the goal; while others obtain a victory hitting hard at the last moment. Being busy does not always mean real work. The object of all work is production or accomplishment through fore thought, system, planning, intelligence, and persistence. There are basically two types of people. People who accomplish things and people who claim to have accomplished things. Actions speak louder than words. The awareness of the difference between what we do and what we are capable of doing would suffice to solve our problems.

To increase our effectiveness, we should make our emotions subordinate to our commitments. Concentration is the key to achieving our targets. People lose their effectiveness when they lose direction. Change is the law of life. Those who look only to the past or present are certain to miss the future. Our self discipline is the bridge between our goals and accomplishments. When we discover our mission, it fills us with enthusiasm and a burning desire to get to work on it. We have to be careful about our goal. Every human has four endowments- self awareness, conscience, independent will and creative imagination. These give us the power to choose, to respond, to change.
