During the time of preparation for attempting the Guinness Record I put up a large motivational banner almost from the ceiling to the floor in front of my bed so I would see it continually! The content of the banner was a quote from President Calvin Coolidge and it kept my batteries charged up no matter what obstacles or challenges I faced from those who were negative or discouraging about my goal to set a new world record!

Today I wear that banner on my heart and the message is a key to the lyrics in my Mountain Song!!!

“Nothing in the world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent. The slogan Press On! has solved and always will solve the problems of the human race.”
― Calvin Coolidge
