Sometimes you have to use what you got to get what you want. Don’t just sit on your talents and skills and do nothing. Be your personal best!
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.
