Part of being a champ is acting like a champ. You have to learn how to win and not run away when you lose. Everyone has bad stretches and real successes. Either way, you have to be careful not to lose your confidence or get to confident.
Paying attention to simple little things that most men neglect makes a few men rich.
Pearls lie not on the seashore. If thou desirest one thou must dive for it.
Robert Silliman Hillyer
Perfectionism is a dangerous state of mind in an imperfect world. The best way is to forget doubts and set about the task in hand... If you are doing your best, you will not have time to worry about failure.
Permanence, perseverance and persistence in spite of all obstacles, discouragements, and impossibilities: It is this, that in all things distinguishes the strong soul from the weak.
Perseverance is not a long race it is many short races one after another.
Perseverance is the hard work you do after you get tired of doing the hard work you already did.
Persevere and get it done.
Persistence is to the character of man as carbon is to steel.
Persistent work triumphs.
