No matter the person, no matter the task, no matter the goal, sustained effort and dedication are essential ingredients of success. Tenacity and perseverance in the face of obstacles are of utmost importance in achieving excellence in the long run. Students who recognize this are able to see initial failure for what it is: not a sign they should quit, but the first step on the road to accomplishing their goals.
