1. Persistence



"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
If you want to practice being more persistent, don't look too far in the future. On days you feel like giving up, focus on the immediate moment, and how you can make even just the slightest bit of progress (or fix a setback) by the end of the day.
