“Nothing in the world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful men 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.” –Calvin Coolidge
There’s a critical difference between “persistence,” as in perseverance, and “insistence,” as in continuing to believe that what you are believing, thinking, and doing are the right things, despite blatant evidence to the contrary.
If you could distinguish between the two, would it make a difference in your business and your life? Of course it would!
On today’s Conscious Leaderpreneurship Conversation, we discussed practical ways to tap into “superconsciousness” and distinguish between persistence and insistence.
