why I cried
I could go on and on, but my point is that it takes continuous forward movement, believing in yourself, never giving up and persevering no matter what, to get you where you want to be.
Sure, there are those lucky few that just land that big gig or go huge with their product right out of the gate. Congrats to them! But the truth is, to make it, whatever that "it" is for you, you either have to be incredibly lucky or you have the tenacity and perseverance to never give up!
My definition of perseverance: the only thing between success and failure. I have gone through peaks and valleys and I am so glad I never gave up; I truly couldn't be happier about where I am today!
