The Persistent Man

When you do hard and right things today; life will one day turn easier. If you persist in doing only the easier, pleasurable things today; one day your life will be difficult. Difficulties today bring MORE favorable results tomorrow. This is the “compounding principle.” What you sow you will reap but what you reap will always be more than what you have sown. This principle does works not only in finance but in life as well.

A young man walks into a bar and asks the bar tender, “Do you have any grapes?” The bartender says, “No, we only sell beer here”. The man leaves.

The next day the man walks back into the bar and asks the bar tender, “Do you have any grapes?” The bartender says, “No! I told you that we only sell beer, and if you ask me again I’m going to nail your tongue to the bar.” So the man leaves.

The next day the man walks back into the bar, and asks the bar tender “Do you have any nails?” The bar tender says “No.” The man asks “Do you have any grapes?”

Never consider the possibility of failure; as long as you persist, you will be successful.

Making your mark on the world is hard. If it were easy, everybody would do it. But it’s not. It takes patience, it takes commitment, and it comes with plenty of failure along the way. The real test is not whether you avoid this failure, because you won’t. it’s whether you let it harden or shame you into inaction, or whether you learn from it; whether you choose to persevere.” ~Barrack Obama
