Day 131 of 365: Elements of Success

Day 130: Elements of success. There is a quote by Winston Churchill that resembles my photography career journey, “Success consists of going from failure to failure without loss of enthusiasm.”

He has also been known for this quote, “Never never never give up.” Like I have said before, I am a Taurus and I am inherently bull-headed and stubborn. I keep going which is my nature. Some people might think that I am fighting a futile battle or as my husband would say – – – – – – – up a rope. Not that he feels that way about my current pursuits, however. All I know is this is my passion. It is what gets me up in the morning. It is what feeds my soul. It is what lights me up. All of us need that something that gives us enjoyment.

We all know people that give up too easily, right? In this day of instant gratification it can be too easy to give up. Take diets for example, they fail all too often. Success takes a lot of effort. The effort needs to be long term. It requires persistent engagement. You have got to “keep the pedal to the medal.”

Colin Powell once said, “Success is the result of perfection, hard work, learning from failure, loyalty, and persistence.”

Keep on fighting the good fight! What are your keys to success?
