Hello fellow students!I'm a pre-nursing student working on my pre-reqs. I've been reading lots of posts here on allnurses lately with a common theme: end of semester burnout, and debates about quitting. Did you know that the difference between success and failure is usually only a 10% difference in effort?A couple of decades ago, there was this skier. His name was...ummm... I forget. Let's call him "what's his name". In the Winter Olympics that year, the gold medal winner for a certain downhill event was a guy named "Jean-Claude Killie". The silver medal winner, was....you guessed it - "What's his name".Jean-Claude beat the number two guy by 1/10 of a second.The next year, Jean-Claude went on to earn 2 million dollars in product endorsements. That same year, the number two guy earned $30,000 as a ski instructor. For those of you who are getting behind, or are just shy of a passing grade and want to give up, please think about this story. Sometimes just a little extra effort is all it takes to make the difference between success and failure. Remember: the pain is temporary - the glory is forever.
