There is no pretense for being dense; either we are or we aren’t, without which we lose our warrant to success. Density in fact is the test.
Endurance is often the difference between average and greatness. Talent is important but not preeminent.
After all, how many people with average talent do we see helping to pilot the age?
Yet they endured and stayed with it even as those who were more gifted were sifted by circumstances.
In this regard, only the dense attend the dance where success and greatness are celebrated.
This means that we must choose to rebound no matter how many times failure frowns on our efforts.
In doing so, we give our dreams the chance they deserve.
