I will persist until I succeed.

In the Orient young bulls are tested for the fight arena in a certain manner.Each is brought to ring and allowed to attack a picador who pricks them with a lance.The bravery of each bull is then rated with care according to the number of times he demonstrates his willingness to charge in spite of the sting of the blade.Henceforth will I recognize that each day I am tested by life in like manner.If I persist,if I continue to try,if I continue to charge forward,I will succeed.

I will persist until I succeed.

I was not delivered unto this world in defeat,nor does failure course in my veins.I am not a sheep waiting to be prodded by my shepherd.I am a lion and I refuse to talk,to walk,to sleep with the sheep.I will hear not those who weep and complain, for their disease is contagious.Let them join the sheep.The slaughterhouse of failure is not my destiny.

The Scorll Marked Three<part II>.

I will persist until I succeed.

The prizes of life are at the end of each journey,not near the beginning; and it is not given to me to know how many steps are necessary in order to reach my goal. Failure I may still encounter at the thousandth step, yet success hides behind the next bend in the road. Never will I know how close it lies unless I turn the corner.

Always will I take another step. If that is of no avail I will take another,and yet another. In truth, one step at a time is not difficult.

I will persist until I succeed.

Henceforth, I will consider each day's effort as but one blow of my blade agains a might oak. The first blow may cause not a tremor in the wood,not the second, nor the third. Each blow, of itself, may be trifling, and seem of no consequence. Yet from childish swipes the oak will eventually tumble. So it will be with my efforts of today.

The Scorll Marked Three<part III>.

    I will be liken to the rain drop which washes away the mountain; the ant who devours a tiger; the star which brightens the earth; the slave who builds a pyramid, I will build my castle one brick at a time for I know that small attempts, repeated, will complete any undertaking.

    I will persist until I succeed.

    I will never consider defeat and I will remove from my vocabulary such words and phrases as quit, cannot, unable, impossible, out of the question, improbable, failure, unworkable, hopeless, and retreat; for they are the words of fools. I will avoid despair but if this disease of the mind should infect me then I will work on in despair. I will toil and I will endure. I will ignore the obstalcles at my feet and keep mine eyes on the goals above my head, for I know that where dry desert ends, green grass grows.

    I will persist until I succeed.

    I will try, and try, and try again. Each obstacle I will consider as a mere detour to my goal and a challenge to my profesion. I will persist and develop my skills as the mariner develops his, by learning to ride out the wrath of each storm.

The Scorll Marked Three<part Iv>.

    I will persist until I succeed.   

    Henceforth, I will learn and apply another secret of those who excel in my work. When each day is ended, not  regarding whether it has been a success or a failure, I will attempt to achieve one more sale. When my thoughts beckon my tired body homeward I will resist the temptation to depart. I will try again. I will make one more attempt to close with victory, and if that fails I will make another. Never will I allow any day to end with a failure. Thus will I plant the seed of tomorrow's success and gain an insurmountable advantage over those who cease their labor at a prescribed time. When others cease their struggle, the mine will begin, and my harvest will be full.

    I will persist until I succeed.

    Never will I allow yesterday's success to lull me into today's complacency, for this is the great founation of failure. I will forget the happenings of the day that is gone, whether they were good or bad, and greet the new sun with confidence that this will be the best day of my life.

    So long as there is breath in me, that long will I persist. For now I know one of the greatest principles of success; if I persist long enough I will win.
