Blogging Mindset: Persistence

“My great concern is not whether you have failed, but whether you are content with your failure.” Abraham Lincoln

Odds are that every new endeavor you are thinking of trying, all the shoulds, all the things you wish you could do, all of those are clouded in fear. You do not know what’s going to happen, whether or not you’re going to be successful, or how long will it take.

Maybe you’re trying to justify that fear by researching the best strategy. Maybe you’re telling yourself it’s not worth it, you’re not good enough, or that there’s too much competition.

Maybe you’re telling yourself you don’t have the time. Or the energy. Or the money.

What if I were to tell you that 90% of success is just getting started, developing a habit, and persevering in spite of numerous obstacles?

That it doesn’t matter what strategy you employ, that it doesn’t matter what resources you have at your disposal. All that matters is that you decide to do it and keep on doing it regardless of what the world has to say, how you feel, or what your results are.

Imagine deciding to go to the gym. Would you expect to notice visible results after one workout?


Well… the same goes for blogging. Or anything else in life.

Persistence is 90% of success. Keep that in mind!

  1. Growing up I was always bad at video games, but I could beat my older brother by just challenging him so many times in a row he’d eventually just get annoyed and let me win or be too tired to play properly. So yes, I know exactly how to be a success, who needs skill when you can just keep bashing your head against a wall until you have your breakthrough.

      1. It doesn’t. But it’s not talent. Talent does not exist. Talent is a word used by the lazy.

        If talent existed, I wouldn’t be able to do what I do in a language I had to learn.
