Keep On Walking

KeepOnWalking2For almost 20 years, his career was full of what he considered, “studio defined failures”. He felt the films that he did during that period were “box office poison”. That has long changed.

In 2002 his movie, Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl was a huge success. Johnny Depp kept pushing until something happened; he’s got staying power.

According to dictionary.com, perseverance means steady persistence in a course of action, a purpose, a state, etc, especially in spite of difficulties, obstacles, or discouragement.

Greatness is not for the faint-hearted. Sometimes a ‘normal’ existence becomes more attractive considering all that those who seek greatness have to endure. Many go through some really crazy stuff, but always find a reason to keep going.

  1. That’s right. It’s important to persevere through the trials. Make no mistake, as you climb the mountain, the terrain gets rougher, the air gets thinner, and the temperature gets colder. In the same way, when you become a leader and are determined to succeed, you can expect difficult terrain, but never give up chasing your dreams. Thanks for the article.
