“This is the touchstone of such a spirit; no prizefighter can go with high spirits into the strife if he has never been beaten black and blue; the only contestant who can confidently enter the lists is the man who has seen his own blood, who has felt his teeth rattle beneath his opponent's fist, who has been tripped and felt the full force of his adversary's charge, who has been downed in body but not in spirit, one who, as often as he falls, rises again with greater defiance than ever.”

I learned over the last 5 years or so, that if you have a go-getter mindset, despite having little talent, you can achieve much more than those who have a lot of talent with a no-getter mindset. Yes, I'll admit it, in my naiveté once upon a time I thought that all one needed was to be blessed by talent and success would fall into their laps. The internet change all of that. It seems now that one can develop talent just so long as they apply relentless pressure consistently.
