In order to achieve the higher forms of success, a man must give up anxiety, hurry, and fussiness.
Pressing forward persistently along a given way is sure to lead to a destination that is definitely associated with that way. Frequent going aside, or turning back, will render effort fruitless; no destination will be reached; success will remain afar off. Effort, and the more effort, and then effort again, is the keynote of success. As the simple old saying has it: “If at first you don’t succeed, Try again.” All the precepts of successful business men are precepts of doing; all the precepts of the wise teachers are precepts of doing. To cease to do is to cease to be of any use in the economy of life. Doing means effort, exertion.
