[Quote No.55376] Need Area: Mind > Persist
"The last three or four reps is what makes the muscle grow. This area of pain [namely completing the last few steps and then doing a little extra] divides the champion from someone else who is not a champion. That's what most people lack, having the guts to go on and just say they'll go through the pain no matter what happens." - Arnold Schwarzenegger
Body building champion, film star, successful businessman and later Governor of California.

[Quote No.55328] Need Area: Mind > Persist
"One way to further develop hope and optimism about the future, after all practical methods to prepare for it have been taken, is to remind yourself that humans are born with an previously evolutionarily useful negativity bias - that thought it better to be frightened by thinking a log was a lion than to mistake a lion for a log - and so it is rationally helpful to generate a counteracting positivity bias against that negativity using the concept that the negative FEAR stands for False Evidence Appearing Real!!" - Seymour@imagi-natives.com

[Quote No.55336] Need Area: Mind > Persist
"Given the negativity bias of the brain, which evolved in the distant past when our survival depended more on being 'safe rather than sorry' and therefore jumping before asking questions, it is natural for us to picture the worst about the future. The unfortunate thing about this is after you have done all you can to prepare for the future this kind of negative idea-image focusing - for example worrying in competitions - actually impairs your performance. Knowing this therefore it is useful, in these situations, to not focus on what you don't want to happen but instead to focus on what good, positive things you want to happen, which - by decreasing your debilitating fear - increases their likelihood, making a positive self-fulfilling prophecy!" - Seymour@imagi-natives.com

[Quote No.55354] Need Area: Mind > Persist
"Staying power is the final test of ability. The real caliber of a man is measured by the amount of opposition that it would take to down him. The world measures a man largely by his breaking down point. Where does he give up? How much punishment can he stand? How long can he take his medicine without running up the white flag? How much resisting power is there in him? What does the man do after he has been knocked down? This is the test. Where is your giving up point, your breaking point, your turning back point? This will determine everything in your career [and life]." - Orison Swett Marden
From his book, 'Selling Things', published 1916.

[Quote No.55356] Need Area: Mind > Persist
"[Poem: about persistence]

'Just Keep On, Keepin' On.'

If the day looks kind of gloomy
And your chances kind of slim;
If the situation's puzzlin',
And the prospects awful grim;
And the prospects keep pressin'
Till all hope is nearly gone,
Just bristle up and grit your teeth,
And keep on, keepin' on.

Fumin' never wins a fight,
And frettin' never pays;
There ain't no use in broodin'
In these pessimistic ways.
Smile just kind of cheerfully,
When hope is nearly gone,
And bristle up and grit your teeth,
And keep on, keepin' on.

There ain't no use of growlin',
And grumblin' all the time,
When music's ringing everywhere,
And everything's a rhyme.
Just keep on smiling cheerfully,
If hope is nearly gone,
And bristle up and grit your teeth,
And keep on, keepin' on.

" - Unknown

[Quote No.55380] Need Area: Mind > Persist
"[Research at Harvard found that the most motivating thing is progress in meaningful work:] This pattern is what we call the progress principle: of all the positive events that influence inner work life, the single most powerful is progress in meaningful work; of all the negative events, the single most powerful is the opposite of progress - setbacks in the work." - Teresa Amabile
From her book, 'The Progress Principle: Using Small Wins to Ignite Joy, Engagement, and Creativity at Work'.

[Quote No.55411] Need Area: Mind > Persist
"I wasn’t the fastest guy in the world. I wouldn’t have done well in an Olympiad or a math contest. But I like to ponder. And pondering things, just sort of thinking about it and thinking about it [persistently], turns out to be a pretty good approach." - Dr. James H. Simons
(1938 - ) Dr. James 'Jim' Harris Simons is an American mathematician, hedge fund manager, and philanthropist. He is a code breaker and studies pattern recognition. Simons taught mathematics at Stony Brook University on Long Island in New York. In 1982, Simons founded Renaissance Technologies, a private hedge fund investment company based in New York with over $25 billion under management. Simons retired at the end of 2009 as CEO of one of the world's most successful hedge fund companies. Simons' net worth is estimated to be $14 billion.

[Quote No.55412] Need Area: Mind > Persist
"[Intelligent persistence is required in all things, even research in mathematics:] The true work of the mathematician is not experienced until the later parts of graduate school, when the student is challenged to create knowledge in the form of a novel proof. It is common to fill page after page with an attempt, the seasons turning, only to arrive precisely where you began, empty-handed — or to realize that a subtle flaw of logic doomed the whole enterprise from its outset. The steady state of mathematical research is to be completely stuck. It is a process that Charles Fefferman of Princeton, himself a onetime math prodigy turned Fields medalist, likens to 'playing chess with the devil'. The rules of the devil's game are special, though: The devil is vastly superior at chess, but, Fefferman explained, you may take back as many moves as you like, and the devil may not. You play a first game, and, of course, 'he crushes you.' So you take back moves and try something different, and he crushes you again, 'in much the same way'. If you are sufficiently wily, you will eventually discover a move that forces the devil to shift strategy; you still lose, but — aha! — you have your first clue. As a group, the people drawn to mathematics tend to value certainty and logic and a neatness of outcome, so this game becomes a special kind of torture. And yet this is what any ­would-be mathematician must summon the courage to face down: weeks, months, years on a problem that may or may not even be possible to unlock. You find yourself sitting in a room without doors or windows, and you can shout and carry on all you want, but no one is listening." - Gareth Cook

[Quote No.55438] Need Area: Mind > Persist
"Certainly all historical experience confirms the truth - that man would not have attained the possible unless time and again he had reached out for the impossible. But to do that a man must be a leader, and not only a leader but a hero as well, in a very sober sense of the word. And even those who are neither leaders nor heroes must arm themselves with that steadfastness of heart which can brave even the crumbling of all hopes. This is necessary right now, or else men will not be able to attain even that which is possible today." - Max Weber
(1863 - 1920), a German, who was a founding father of Sociology.

[Quote No.55460] Need Area: Mind > Persist
"In many situations in life the future can 'look' terrible and fearful. At these times in the past, faith in religion and a benevolent god, and adherence to its prescribed behaviour that demonstrated belief and therefore justified 'salvation' was helpful as it made it possible for people to 'imagine' a positive future and to go on doing what was necessary to survive. In a technological present where faith is less common, Buddhist present focus - 'be here now' - has been found to relieve anxiety about imagined negative futures. Another helpful thing that science has found is that in the past - but no longer, there was an evolutionary survival advantage to having an imagination with a negativity bias so we were hyper-vigilant and didn't underestimate dangers. Keeping this scientific understanding in mind allows people to rationally argue [refer RET - Rational Emotive Therapy and CBT - Cognitive Behavior Therapy] with their often too negative imagination, reminding themselves that their FEAR is most likely False Evidence Appearing Real and therefore having sensible faith in a consciously, more positively imagined and described future, thereby relieving anxiety and enabling greater productivity and happiness!!" - Ben O'Grady

"[Persist through difficulties:] We might ask ourselves, what tools do we have? What can we count on? You can count on yourself. Believe me, your self is your best ally. You know who you are, even when sometimes it becomes a little blurry and you make mistakes or seem to be veering off, just go deeper [to find your true self and authentic desires]. You know who you are. You know the right thing to do. And when you make a mistake, it's alright - just as the song goes, pick yourself up, brush yourself off, and start all over again." - Patti Smith
Patricia Lee 'Patti' Smith is an American singer-songwriter, poet and visual artist who became a highly influential component of the New York City punk rock movement. [http://www.brainpickings.org/2014/04/21/patti-smith-pratt-commencement/? ]

[Quote No.55606] Need Area: Mind > Persist
"On the whole, try to respect life not only for its amenities but for its hardships, too. They are a part of the game, and what's good about a hardship is that it is not a deception. Whenever you are in trouble, in some scrape, on the verge of despair or in despair, remember: that's life speaking to you in the only language it knows well. In other words, try to be a little masochistic: without a touch of masochism, the meaning of life [and your personal growth-evolution] is not complete." - Joseph Brodsky

"[A story - with a message about the power of optimism and positivity in life and work:] 'Get Out Of The Shade' - One afternoon, a young man walked into [Andrew] Carnegie's office to interview him about his success. Carnegie could have told the young man about his journey from poverty to riches or about his wild dealings with John Rockefeller. But instead, Carnegie talked about something else. His optimism. Carnegie said the most important thing in his life was his 'ability to shed trouble and to laugh through life.' He said that seeing life through a lens of positivity was worth more to him than millions of dollars. 'Young people should know that it can be cultivated,' Carnegie said. 'The mind, like the body, can be moved from the shade into sunshine.' And it makes good business sense, too. By not getting weighed down by the negative, Carnegie could keep his focus on the positive, bounce back from failures faster, and see opportunities where other people didn't know they existed!" - Alex Banayan

"[A story - with a message about persistence:] 'An Irrational Level of Commitment' - Growing up, Sugar Ray Leonard would wake up, get dressed for school, and walk with his siblings to the bus stop. As the yellow bus would pull to the curb, his friends and siblings would step up into the school bus, but young Sugar Ray Leonard, who is now a six-time world champion boxer, would refuse to get on. As the bus drove away, Leonard tightened up his sneakers and ran behind the bus all the way to school. 'The other kids thought I was crazy,' Leonard said, 'because I would run in the rain, snow - it didn't matter. I did it because I didn't just want to be better than the next guy, I wanted to be better than all the guys.' My generation is used to instant gratification. But Sugar Ray Leonard demonstrated the necessity to be able to buckle down for the long haul and accept that you won't see any return on investment for years. You have to be able to stay passionately committed even when you can't see the light at the end of the tunnel. And remember, Sugar Ray Leonard, now one of the greatest boxers in history, was running behind that yellow school bus at a time when others thought he wasn't 'boxing material'. Sugar Ray Leonard kept at it, to the point that others thought was irrational. Turns out irrational commitment leads to irrational success." - Alex Banayan

"Hope begins in the dark - the stubborn hope that if you just show up and try to do the right thing, the dawn will come. You wait and watch and work; you don't give up." - Anne Lamott

[Quote No.55746] Need Area: Mind > Persist
"[Self-talk: in order to improve the way you talk to yourself, so it is more positive, supportive and rational - refer the value of skepticism and Rational Emotive Therapy - so you can be more productive, persistent and happy] You need to remember the 3 P's: Permanence, pervasiveness and whether it’s personal. Pessimists tell themselves that bad events: --- 1. Will last a long time, or forever. ('I'll never get this done.') ---2. Are universal. ('You can't trust any of those people.') ---3. Are their own fault. ('I'm terrible at this.') Optimists look at setbacks in the exact opposite way: ---1. Bad things are temporary. ('That happens occasionally but it's no big deal.') ---2. Bad things have a specific cause and aren't universal. ('When the weather is better that won't be a problem.') ---3. It's not their fault. ('I'm good at this but today wasn't my lucky day.') When talking to yourself, be an optimist, not a pessimist. [Martin E.P. Seligman in his book, 'Learned Optimism: How to Change Your Mind and Your Life' states 'The defining characteristic of pessimists is that they tend to believe bad events will last a long time, will undermine everything they do, and are their own fault. The optimists, who are confronted with the same hard knocks of this world, think about misfortune in the opposite way. They tend to believe defeat is just a temporary setback, that its causes are confined to this one case. The optimists believe defeat is not their fault: Circumstances, bad luck, or other people brought it about. Such people are unfazed by defeat. Confronted by a bad situation, they perceive it as a challenge and try harder.'] ... And when good things happen, the situation reverses: --Pessimists think good things will be short-lived, are rare and random. --Optimists think good things will last forever, are universal and of their own doing. What's the ultimate result of this? Pessimists often quit. Life feels futile. And when life feels futile, you stop trying and frequently get depressed. [The solution is to change the way they think and so change their life!]" - Eric Barker
