Patience and diligence are the key to any progression. You must have patience in knowing that your hard work will pay off, but most importantly you must be diligent in your actions. Aim and go for it! Reach for your goals; nothing should stop you. There may be detours along the way but you must re-route yourself to reach your destination.
Say for instance, you are going up for a promotion for the 3rd or 4th time and each occurrence you miss the opportunity. Perhaps you should try adjusting your approach: reaching out to a co-worker/peer to review your application or resumé. This definitely applies to the creative field: you constantly are submitting your art to be reviewed by a committee to have it displayed for public viewing. However, time after time your submission keeps getting overlooked. Perhaps you should research a gallery that fits more with your type and style of art and submit there. Patience is important to the craft of a creative. Re-route and reassess.
