The Most Important Advice You Will Ever Get
Always searching for ways to improve myself, I end up finding so many great quotes. Most seem to come and go, but there are a few that really stick with me. One that has really hit home for me is a quote by Calvin Coolidge.
Nothing in this 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.
My biggest take away from this quote is never stop. If you are passionate and motivated don’t allow anything to stop you.
There is a popular youtuber I take about from time to time by the name of Casey Neistat. Over the years he has had some viral youtube videos, but he wanted to start a daily vlog. In his video “3 words got me 3 MILLION SUBSCRIBERS” he shared that the most important 3 words of advice that anyone ever gave him were “Just Keep Uploading”. This was shared to him by a friend named Roman Atwood. Casey claims its the greatest piece of Youtube advice he has ever been given.
Casey, regardless of how tired or overworked he felt, continued to upload every day. His channel has grown to nearly 8 million subscribers and his videos have millions of views. Of course, this did not happen to Casey over night. He had to put in long hours, work hard, and be persistent.
It took Casey 5 years to reach 1 million subscribers. Thats a long time to work toward his goals, but it is also allows for a lot of time for others to give up.
If you have a dream or passion supported by motivation if you are persistent you will out perform most of the people chasing the same dream. Like the previous quote said “Nothing in this world can take the place of persistence.
