Nothing is More Important Than Persistence

"Nothing in this world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful people with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent. The slogan 'press on' has solved and always will solve the problems of the human race." --Calvin Coolidge

Believe in the goal of becoming a millionaire

" This isn't something to discuss in terms of "possibilities" or "maybes". You must believe that you both deserve to be and will become a millionaire. Many people don't truly believe they deserve more money than what they're already getting. In fact, many people discount wealth as being bad, dirty, an evil and something ignoble to pursue. Yet, this ignores the reality that money creates opportunities both for yourself and for others. With more money, you can help more people just as much as you can help yourself. For example, you will have far greater opportunities to help others through charity donations, mentoring, creating projects that people can be a part of and possible even providing jobs if you're a business person. None of these things are tainted reasons for wanting to be rich."
