WMPMI's monthly lunchtime meeting is a one-PDU event featuring a speaker that presents on a topic from the PMI Talent Triangle. 

Power of Persistence

"Nothing in this 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.”

Successful people are not necessarily the luckiest, most talented or most intelligent people – they are simply consistent people who do what it takes to achieve their goals. They become absolutely obsessed with achieving their goals. They immerse themselves in every facet of the goal and become fanatical in their approach to reaching it. The good news for us is that within each of us resides the same seeds of greatness. The session will focus on how consistency plays an important role in becoming great whatever we aim for.

Learning Outcomes:

  • Importance of passion and perseverance to pursue your long term goals
  • Setting SMART goals
  • Developing a growth mindset to motivate yourself
  • Using a growth mindset to positively influence others
