Persistence perfects talent

A Chinese proverb says: "The master has failed more times than the beginner has even tried." I think some are better with talent but no one has ever achieved something without determination, persistence and hard work. Examples help us realize how important this is: many famous people have different reasons for never giving up. Mark Zuckerberg, the creator and co-founder of Facebook, was just trying various kinds of apps because he liked to write code: android music player, simple server-client chat... He tried new things until he founded his, now well-known, company while still at college. This is exactly what Anna Šišková - the renowned Slovak actress - told me in an interview: “I was not trying to get famous. I just wanted to do what I enjoyed doing." - “Ja som sa nesnažila, aby som bola slávna. Chcela som robiť, čo ma baví."
