"Perseverance is one of the key qualities that you need to reach success."
-Anna LeMind

I've been working on this Ocean Goddess painting every morning, trying to correct some things about the anatomy that I wasn't happy with.  I'm beginning to wonder why I've been seeking such perfection, can it ever be reached, and when!?!?!?

I've started to realize that I will not give up when it comes to painting. I will not stop painting, but I will always try to be my best.

Is that the key to success?
I found this great post about perseverance leading to success from Learning Mind:

"Perseverance is one of the key qualities that you need to reach success. Really, perseverance is a great tool to use, which doesn’t require neither college education nor training of any kind.
Persistence almost always leads to success. No matter what area your goals have to do with, but if you persevere, you will succeed.
In fact, your persistence has helped you learn to walk, to talk, to write. And you have succeeded in this.
You may be active, but it doesn’t mean that you move forward. If you don’t move forward, you will not achieve success. Remember when you learned to ride a bike. Most of us made many attempts to obtain the skills of riding a bicycle, but we showed perseverance, which led us to success, and we learned to ride a bike.
The key means to develop perseverance is doing small steps, resulting in small achievement. Small achievements form a big success. Think about creating a puzzle: you add part by part and finally get the final image.
Persistence usually means learning something new in order to achieve the main goal. Always invest in your knowledge as it will assist you in moving forward and exploring new areas to succeed.
The way to success can’t be without failures. The most important thing is to learn from these failures and to continue moving forward. Do not give up. Take the necessary lesson, and move on toward success.
The key to success in any field is to continue making efforts to achieve your goal even if you haven’t managed to do it from the first time."
