    ====Not a teacher====

    If you want to encourage that person, say: Try try try until you succeed.

    A person who works very hard
    Sedulous as a bee?
    Assiduous as an ant?
    An eager beaver?

    If at first you don't succeed, try and try again.

    Also,

    Rome wasn't built in a day.

    It's more of a phrase saying that you can't expect success right away... that you just have to keep building

    Not a teacher but my suggestions:

    'Quitters never win and winners never quit.'

    'If at first you don't succeed, try, try again.' - A slight alteration on one suggested before.

    'Success consists of going from failure to failure without loss of enthusiasm.'

    Hope that helps.
