    at the moment of your conception

    Hi again,

    1) No matter what obstacles and difficulties lie in you way, they are not one-tenth so great as the ones that have already been overcome at the moment of your conception.

    Does it mean the greatest obstacle is to win our mind???

    2) Please explain the following context.

    I found no quality save persistence, in either of Edison or Ford, that even remotely suggested the major source of their stupendous achievements.

    Thanks!

    1- No, it means when your mother became pregnant with you.
    2- Edison and Ford were persistent- there was no other outstanding characteristic which explained their success.

    [QUOTE=tdol]1- No, it means when your mother became pregnant with you.

    So it means, nothing is more difficult than the pregnancy? it sounds pretty weird, doesn't it?
