I Will Persist Until I Succeed

If I persist, if I continue to try,

If I continue to change forward,

I will succeed. I will persist until I succeed.

I was not delivered into this world in defeat,

Nor does failure course in my veins.

I will persist until I succeed.

The prizes of life are at the end of each journey,

not near the beginning; and it is not given to me

to know how many steps are necessary in

order to reach my goal.

Failure I may still encounter at the thousandth step,

Yet success hides behind the next bend in the road.

Never will I know how close it lies unless I turn

the corner. Always will I take another step.

If that is of no avail, I will take another,

and yet another. In truth, one step at a time is not too

difficult. I will persist until I succeed.

So long as there is breath in me, that long will I persist.

For now I know one of the greatest principles of success;

If I persist long enough, I will win. I will persist and I will win.

Nothing on earth can defeat me… I will never consider defeat.

I will persist until I succeed.
