The place of persistence

“Nothing in the 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. The slogan ‘Press On’ has solved and always will solve the problems of the human race.”

It is debatable whether AAAs were ever really the first choice in the land. Maybe it is Arger’s innate conservatism and belief that he has to treat the club’s money as if it were his own; maybe it is with increasing regularity

Wen is a benevolent dictator, so it should come as little surprise that he has opted to shun the assistance of high-profile former players in favour of the yes-men he prefers to surround himself with.

He accepts he made a significant error of judgement and has apologised. However, due to the serious nature of his actions, The FA and Alla have mutually agreed to terminate his contract with immediate effect. The manager is a position which must demonstrate strong leadership and show respect for the integrity of the game at all times. priority is to protect the wider interests of the game and maintain the highest standards of conduct in football. were posing as businessmen interested in profiting from the Premier League’s transfer market. There were frequent complaints last season that these players were too self-regarding and not nearly team-focused enough to make things happen.there will have been many who expected this new project to take-off in an effortless fashion.

we've concluded that his behaviour has been inappropriate and frankly not what is expected of any manager, discussing a range of issues from potential contraventions of societal rules through to personal comments that frankly just don't work when you're the manager. We have to stand up for the other right behaviours across the whole game. We're the guardians of the game, we set the rules and we have to be seen to apply those rules consistently and evenly, whether you are the manager or someone low down in the organisation. And so that consistency, that trust that people have in us to be behaving in the appropriate manner is core to what it is about and is certainly true of the Association. deeply upset and deeply regrets the error of judgement.

Positive vibes only… block out the haters’
We must value ourselves, which includes setting aside time to regenerate and refocus our lives. When we do that, we set the tone for a new successful day, our priorities intact, our head and heart tuned on straight, and our soul settled. We essentially give the day permission to be positive because we’ve started in a peaceful direction.
The natural result of taking risks and leading well is resistance. It comes in many forms: an angry email, that internal voice of condemnation, an out-of-the-blue financial roadblock, or a colleague’s interference. This resistance slams into you like a jack hammer. All the what-if’s—the accusations about unaccomplished tasks, the berating—happen when I’m finally still.
If this resistance continues, it’s time to do a self-intervention. During a planned project launch, old voices rise up. “This won’t sell. You’re a hack. Folks will walk away.” This could have derailed one from one’s focus. Instead, remember James 1:2. “When all kinds of trials and temptations crowd into your lives my brothers, don’t resent them as intruders, but welcome them as friends!”
Let resistance be your friend to embrace, not an intruder to resent. The resistance- pushing back- helps you clarify the initial reason why you’re doing the thing you do, refocus on that effort, and reframe the why. Experiencing resistance confirms you’re doing something right—you’re bringing light into dark places.
Another thing is that pessimism is escapable. Pessimists can in fact learn to be optimists, and not through mindless devices like whistling a happy tune or mouthing platitudes…but by learning a new set of cognitive skills.” Yes, it is possible to reframe your outlook, even when angry thoughts assail you.
Focus and positivity. Such beautiful, simple words- when they’re operational in your morning and evening, a stunning synergy emerges. Workdays become productive, and your mind de-clutters from crippling negativity.

Since the turn of this century, death rates have risen for whites in midlife, particularly women. In this series, The Washington Post is exploring this trend and the forces driving it.

It takes perseverance, drive and passion to rise above difficulties, and a long-term goal always serves as a light at the end of a seemingly never-ending tunnel. My goal is simple-intellectual enrichment. My life experiences have helped me to appreciate the value f this goal and I look forward to reaching it.
