You've got to say, "I think that if I keep working at this and want it badly enough I can have it". It's called perseverance. ~Lee J. Iacocca~
It is NEVER too late to realize your dreams and step into your destiny, no matter what your age or station in life. If you have been given a vision for something as yet unrealized, don't allow initial failures or setbacks to keep you from achieving it. Stay focused on your purpose, knowing that every obstacle that comes along in your pursuit of it, is merely bringing you one step closer to its attainment. Colonel Sanders (Kentucky Fried Chicken) traveled the entire country by car, and had to approach over 12,000 restaurants, trying to get them to take a chance on his "secret recipe"...all at the age of 65, while living on a $105/month Social Security check! Now that's perseverance!!!
So I say to you, Ask and keep on asking and it shall be given you; seek and keep on seeking and you shall find; knock and keep on knocking and the door shall be opened. For everyone who asks and keeps on asking receives; and he who seeks and keeps on seeking finds; and to him who knocks and keeps on knocking, the door shall be opened. ~Jesus, Luke 11:9,10 (Amp)~ Consider it pure joy, my brothers and sisters, whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith produces perseverance. Let perseverance finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything...Blessed is the one who perseveres under trial because, having stood the test, that person will receive the crown of life that the Lord has promised to those who love him. ~James 1:2-4, 12 (NIV)~ As you know, we count as blessed those who have persevered. You have heard of Job's perseverance and have seen what the Lord finally brought about. The Lord is full of compassion and mercy. ~James 5:11 (NIV)~
