Perseverance /Application:  He who would learn to fly one day, must first learn to stand, then walk, run, climb and dance.  One cannot fly into flying Friedrich Nietzche


As the quote above suggest, success is usually the result of serious, on-going daily effort and application. Learners must come to understand that it is critical that they do all the small things as they are presented. New knowledge is built upon previous knowledge. That’s why it’s so important for learners to attend school regularly, to pay close attention in class and to take their education seriously. Continuous application to work is essential for success.
