Perseverance makes the difference - just ask Abe. When Abraham Lincoln took the oath of office in 1861, it was not a miraculous moment in time. It was the culmination of a long, difficult journey filled with disappointments, setbacks, failures and ultimate success an incredible testament to the power of faith and perseverance.

My mother died in my tenth year. When I came of age I did not know much. Still somehow, I could read, write, and cipher...but that was all."

Given his early fortunes in business, politics and life, however, no one would have blamed him had he given up his ultimate dream.
