I am on the eve of the biggest mental and physical challenge of my life. Supported by amazing people, I have planned and prepared meticulously, trained hard and I am now totally focused. This motto will be my constant mantra on the long walk ahead:
Persistence is everything:
“NOTHING in the world can replace persistence,
-Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful people with talent
-Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb
– Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts
PERSISTENCE AND DETERMINATION are omnipotent”
