Ray Kroc, the man credited for establishing McDonald's as the number one fast food restaurant in the world was quoted as saying, "Nothing in this world can take the place of Persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful people 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."
In our high-speed Internet and fast food world we become accustomed to getting what we want now and too many times become impatient and disgruntled when we don't see instantaneous results. As a leader of the trapping community in my home state I have witnessed this and have been guilty of this myself.
As members we need to trust that the people we have elected to represent us are accomplishing all that is possible with what they have to work with. When it comes to laws, regulations and legislations all the pawns have to be positioned in the right place on the board to win the game. Sometimes this takes many years and a change in players to accomplish this, like a new senator or commissioner. It takes calculated risks and the recognition of proper timing to execute a successful plan.
Over the last year Tennessee and other states have scored victories on behalf of trapping. The NTA and its leadership continues to be persistent and its members need to be patient while its leadership works on their behalf. Remember, while we live in a high speed world, some things still require Patience & Persistence. Change worth having often times comes after a period of waiting and many times the work behind the effort is often unrecognizable until the results are revealed.
