As the upcoming season approaches, a quote I recently read seems approriate for all regardless of goals and abilities:

“Nothing in the world can take the place of perrsistence. 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.” Calvin Coolidge

Swim on with persistence and determination!
