Continuing to press forward even though you experience life’s challenges.

The video reminds us that despite obstacles, we must stand firm and press forward.  In 1947, Robinson was a black man in white baseball who experienced racism and discrimination.


With his opponents, the fans, and even his teammates against him, Robinson fought with persistence.  Through persistence, Robinson had the guts not to fight back, but instead focus on the goal.  Through persistence, Robinson changed everything.


“Success is the result of perfection, hard work, learning from failure, loyalty, and persistence.

“The big talent is persistence.”

The quote by Colin Powell tells us that success can be realized through persistence.  Jackie Robinson did not let color, racism, the past, or injustice stop him. Through persistence, he overcame adversity.


Octavia Butler’s quote tells us that Robinson’s patience through adversity, perspiration to develop his skill, and persistence not to quit made an unbeatable combination for his success.
