The only way to fail in SFI is if you give up.
SO many people quit just as they're ready to break through. Imagine mining deep into a mountainside, then walking away mere inches away from striking gold. Don't be that person.
Worse is the person who does this over and over again. If they had just kept digging instead of moving on to the "next great thing" every few months, they'd already have their gold–and they would have reached it so much sooner!
And, yes, sometimes it will seem that your efforts are not accomplishing anything, but always remember that even the mightiest oak tree will eventually be felled by the steady chops of even the smallest axe. Persistence always pays off.

"Success seems to be connected with action. Successful people keep moving. They make mistakes, but they don't quit."
"It's when things get rough and you don't quit that success comes."
"Failure is the path of least persistence."
