PRESS ON

“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.”

Calvin Coolidge

Follow your dream.  Take consistent, positive action in whatever way you can.
Anything is possible!
