[Quote No.67522] Need Area: Mind > Persist
"[When faced with a choice - for example to start a plan or adjust and persist with one - remember this about criticism ...] Whatever you do, you need courage. Whatever course you decide upon, there is always someone to tell you that you are wrong. There are always difficulties arising that tempt you to believe your critics are right." - Ralph Waldo Emerson

[Quote No.67637] Need Area: Mind > Persist
"[Poem about the contribution, effort and persistence required for success:-]

Some fellows stay right in the rut,
While others head the throng.
All men may be born equal but,
They don't stay that way long.
There is many a man with a gallant air,
Goes galloping to the fray.
But the valuable man is the man who's there,
When the smoke has cleared away.
Some don't get nuthin' out of life,
But when their whines begin,
We often can remind them that,
They didn't put nuthin' in.

[Quote No.67783] Need Area: Mind > Persist
"To fight the good fight is one of the bravest and noblest of life's experiences. Not the bloodshed and the battle of man with man, but the grappling with mental and spiritual adversaries that determines the inner caliber of the contestant. It is the quality of the struggle put forth by a man that proclaims to the world what manner of man he is far more than may be by the termination of the battle. It matters not nearly so much to a man that he succeeds in winning some long-sought prize as it does that he has worked for it honestly and unfalteringly with all the force and energy there is in him. It is in the effort that the soul grows and asserts itself to the fullest extent of its possibilities, and he that has worked will, persevering in the face of all opposition and apparent failure, fairly and squarely endeavoring to perform his part to the utmost extent of his capabilities, may well look back upon his labor regardless of any seeming defeat in its result and say, 'I have fought a good fight.' As you throw the weight of your influence on the side of the good, the true and the beautiful, your life will achieve an endless splendor. It will continue in the lives of others, higher, finer, nobler than you can even contemplate." - Hugh B. Brown

[Quote No.67939] Need Area: Mind > Persist
"[Poem: about the power of focused imagination.]

'The Secret of the Ages'

You can do as much as you think you can,
But you'll never accomplish more;
If you're afraid of yourself, young man,
There's little for you in store.
For failure comes from the inside first,
It's there, if we only knew it,
And you can win, though you face the worst,
If you feel that you're going to do it.

" - Edgar Albert Guest
(1881 - 1959) American author and poet. Excerpt from book, 'The Secret of the Ages' (1926). This is like the Henry Ford quote, 'Whether you believe you can or believe you can't, you're right.'

[Quote No.68364] Need Area: Mind > Persist
"...why is success so elusive? The answer boils down to a single word: [persistent, consistent] discipline. Not many people have consistent discipline when times are good. Even fewer in times of stress. Anyone can do something once. Not everyone can do it consistently. Eating healthy for a meal is common. Eating healthy all week is not. Working out occasionally is common. Working out a few times a week is not. Going to bed on time is easy. Doing it for a week is not. Positioning yourself for future success is simple but not easy. The hardest part is the discipline required to do otherwise ordinary things for an extraordinarily long period of time, even when the results are barely noticeable. When people say you need to love the process, this is what they mean. Can you do it when it's hard? Can you do it when other people stop? Can you work on something long enough to let it compound? Can you do it when the results aren't visible?​​ Putting yourself in a position for success is simple. Doing it day in and day out is hard. Extraordinary results come from ordinary people with uncommon discipline." - FarnamStreetBlog.com

[Quote No.68623] Need Area: Mind > Persist
"[Failure, mistakes, learning; persistence; growth; health, ageing; authenticity-individualism:-] 'Kintsugi: The Centuries-Old Art of Repairing Broken Pottery with Gold' - Poetically translated to 'golden joinery,' Kintsugi, or Kintsukuroi, is the centuries-old Japanese art of fixing broken pottery. Rather than rejoin ceramic pieces with a camouflaged adhesive, the Kintsugi technique employs a special tree sap lacquer dusted with powdered gold, silver, or platinum. Once completed, beautiful seams of gold glint in the conspicuous cracks of ceramic wares, giving a one-of-a-kind appearance to each 'repaired' piece. This unique method celebrates each artifact's unique history by emphasizing its fractures and breaks instead of hiding or disguising them. In fact, Kintsugi often makes the repaired piece even more beautiful than the original, revitalizing it with a new look and giving it a second life. ... While Kintsugi's origins aren't entirely clear, historians believe that it dates back to the late 15th century. According to legend, the craft commenced when Japanese shogun Ashikaga Yoshimasa sent a cracked chawan - or tea bowl - back to China to undergo repairs. Upon its return, Yoshimasa was displeased to find that it had been mended with unsightly metal staples. This motivated contemporary craftsmen to find an alternative, aesthetically pleasing method of repair, and Kintsugi was born. By the 17th century, Kintsugi has become common practice in Japan. According to Louise Cort (the curator of ceramics at the Freer Gallery of Art and Arthur M. Sackler Gallery), it was during this time that a Japanese warrior infamously purchased, broke, and repaired standard tea bowls in order to make a profit. 'That seems to indicate that, by the beginning of the 17th century, kintsugi was a commonly used technique for repairing - and at the same time, ornamenting - ceramics for tea,' Cort explains. In addition to serving as an aesthetic principle, Kintsugi has long represented prevalent philosophical ideas. Namely, the practice is related to the Japanese philosophy of wabi-sabi, which calls for seeing beauty in the flawed or imperfect. The repair method was also born from the Japanese feeling of mottainai, which expresses regret when something is wasted, as well as mushin, the acceptance of change." - Kelly Richman-Abdou
