Perseverance

The more challenging the goal, the more important it is for us to find the strength to see the project through to the end. Perseverance has many names and faces and is exemplified by many famous and not so famous people. Coaches such as Vince Lombardi evidenced an incredibly strong will and demanded the same from his players. I remember my football days in the early 1970s when my coach told me repeatedly, “You have to want it bad enough, Shapiro. You just don't want it bad enough. “

I think that's a common theme for most of us. I wish that I had learned that lesson earlier in my life. Like most people, I have moments when I look back and say, “I could have done this,” or “I could have done that.” My list of “could haves” included sports like football (I was heavily recruited out of high school) and the theater (I was a theater voice major for two years in college). But I eventually gave up at both of these, and I really can't even tell you why except that apparently I didn't want it bad enough.
