10 Awe-Inspiring Quotes About Persistence & Passion To Fuel Your Journey

Stand Out In The CrowdEntrepreneurship is a labor of love, and like any great love, that often means a lot of passion and a lot of persistence to reach your happily ever after. There are setbacks, failures, successes and triumphs, but it just may be that all those peaks and valleys are what make being an entrepreneur so great.

The one ingredient you’ll always need for the journey of entrepreneurship is persistence. It can take you further than any other quality alone. Here are 10 great quotes about persistence and passion to fuel your journey forward.

Energy and persistence conquer all things.

– Benjamin Franklin

The power to keep going will conquer all other obstacles. Combine that with the energy and passion to see new ways around challenges and you’ll achieve your goals.

Nothing in this 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.

– Calvin Coolidge

Persistence can overcome almost any challenge. When you put your mind to something and are willing to do everything it takes, including patience, putting in time and adjusting your strategy to get there — you’ll ultimately know the omnipotence of determination.

Patience, persistence and perspiration make an unbeatable combination for success.

– Napoleon Hill

It’s important to want things, to have goals and aspirations, but it’s even more important to take the action to achieve them. Thoughts alone won’t get you to the goal line; you’ll need to do the work necessary to reach the objective.

Success is the result of perfection, hard work, learning from failure, loyalty and persistence.

–Colin Powell

The qualities that will carry you through to achieve your goals are often the same ones necessary for great leadership. As an entrepreneur, you’ll likely be a leader, so the quality to inspire as well as persevere will be key to your personal growth and success.

You may encounter many defeats, but you must not be defeated. In fact, it may be necessary to encounter the defeats, so you can know who you are, what you can rise from, how you can still come out of it.

– Maya Angelou

Perseverance is the ability to keep going after defeat. Don’t define each stumble or failure along the way, as they are only there to make you stronger. Try to see the other qualities and lessons that come forth and shape who you are as you go.

Ambition is the path to success. Persistence is the vehicle you arrive in.

– Bill Bradley

It’s easy to see successful people and think they were born that way. The reality is that every successful person was ambitious and relentless. Persistence is the vehicle you should be most interested in.

Paralyze resistance with persistence.

– Woody Hayes

Sometimes feelings of defeat, failure and anxiety will sneak up on you. When they do, try to feed your courage instead of fuel your fear. Overcome the resistance with unrelenting persistence.

If you’re going through hell, keep going.

– Winston Churchill

Parts of the journey will be hellish and hard, but the only thing that can make it worse is quitting. Keep going. Make the struggle worth it by persisting.

Champions keep playing until they get it right.

– Billy Jean King

If you want to become a champion in life and in your niche, keep going. No matter what hardships you face, learn to keep playing the game until you succeed.

If you can’t fly, then run, if you can’t run then walk, if you can’t walk then crawl, but whatever you do you have to keep moving forward.

– Martin Luther King, Jr.

Some days the actions you take will be big, other days your best will be very little, but keep moving forward to persevere and succeed.

When was the last time you sent a “Get Well Soon” card to an ailing friend? Make that time now and drop a line to cheer them up, or better yet, send them an unexpected sentiment in the mail that is sure to brighten their day.

Sending a “Romantic Card” can be tough. Looking for the perfect message amongst the piles of cards stocked on the shelves to tell your loved one how special they are is a task in itself. Take the time to sit down and create a card laced with your special message that has all the aesthetics you desire and that you know your sweetheart deserves.

Do you know when your friend’s birthdays are? If not, it’s probably time to update your contacts so you are never to miss an occasion again. Be the person who sends cards ahead of time. Don’t miss out on sharing your gratitude towards that special person. Nothing puts a smile on a face faster than a piece of mail that expresses love, thought and makes that person feel unique.

Have you ever sat down to browse through the number of festivals and holidays that are being celebrated? What about the number of greeting cards for every emotion a human being can feel? If you haven’t, then you should.

SOC Social Leader Award

Social Team Card

This quoted sentiment is so true about those we are highlighting today. Creating habits by performing small acts of kindness, shines a light on the true colors and character of a person. And we believe this is the essence of the SOC Social Leader Award.

We would like to announce and honor three very special SendOutCards Distributors for their positive influence and gracious acts of kindness. As many of you know, SendOutCards has an Official Facebook Group for distributors all around the globe to interact with one another in an educational and inspirational format to better build and support their business.


Often times simple and complicated questions alike are proposed, a brilliant idea is shared or advice on how to engage within the group is given. There are three driven, selfless individuals who are eager to jump in and help in any way they can. These three Distributors have been nominated by the SendOutCards Corporate staff to receive our SOC Social Leader award. We will continue to feature SOC Social Leaders and we can’t wait to see the positive influence the group has on SendOutCards and the distributors. 

Please join us in congratulating the following social rock stars
