A Quote To Keep Me Pressing On...

I am in a continual journey of self-improvement and growth to become my best self as a person and an actor.

I have not fully developed my new personal mission statement.

I am getting there... just haven't hit on something that inspires and keeps me "jazzed" to take on the world.

No rush. It is coming... 

I have however, stumbled across a quote  by U.S. President Calvin Coolidge that, for an actor, is something that will be useful to draw strength from when those moments of frustration get me down. For me inspiration is the strongest resource for creativity and simply keeping going. These words inspire me and remind me to live my life on my terms and never stop moving in the direction of my dreams.


If you need a pick me up, read these words and "Press On".
   

Nothing in the 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. 
The slogan 'Press On' has solved and always will solve the problems of the human race. 
 
-Calvin Coolidge

  1. Spot on Kevin.

    Enjoyed the Coolidge quote -
    `...nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent...' - indeed!
    & that's one reason why we should have faith in ourselves.
    Cheers, ic

  2. As long as you have a goal, know the direction in which you must go, and keep on track (sometimes having to change directions in order to get where you are going) with persistence, then hopefully all will be well.
    Press on Kevin, press on :) You'll never where you will end up without trying.
