It's all about being:
• Pleasant: Letting your affable personality open doors for you.
• Patient: The tolerance needed to get you over the rough spots and through the journey.
• Positive: A winning attitude, and a conviction that you're going to make it.
• Passionate: The motivating force you never want to lose.
• Persistent: Refusing to take "no" for an answer, and refusing to give up.
"Nothing in this world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful people with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent."—Calvin Coolidge
