Achievement is everywhere. There is plenty to be had if you just go for it. You are never too old to accomplish a major success (infographic). In every case you hear about achievement, not excluding the recent breakthrough in quantum teleportation, the first thing they point out is how they overcame a hurdle.
Persistence is the key to achievement. Those that pull out all the stops continue on. Those that stretch themselves get further. Quantum achievement doesn’t just happen, it is earned.
