Warning: Graphic Display of Persistence

Every morning, I tweet Patience & Persistence….They are my reminders and the keystone to mental toughness and success. But, what does persistence actually look like?

Warning: This is a graphic display of persistence. 

This is NO MAGIC Trick- this is real!

David Blaine revealed that this “trick” took 10 years to accomplish. He actually created a fistula , which is a hollowed out area of scar tissue through his arm where the needle is inserted, that’s why there is NO BLOOD.

For 10 years, David would take a needle through his arm in the same spot and increase the damage every so slightly. He drilled a hole through his arm to perform a magic trick- That is a display of persistence!
