It took Japanese fashion designer Kazuhiro Watanabe 15 years to make his dream a reality. After great effort, he was able to grow a mohawk that is 3 feet, 8.6 inches tall. According to Guinness World Records, it’s the tallest in the world.

He says to make it stand upright it takes stylists two hours, one can of gel and three cans of hairspray. He says he wanted to grow the mohawk to rebel against the conformity of Japanese society.

Watanabe’s long but successful struggle reminds me of a statement by Calvin Coolidge:

Nothing in the world can take the place of Persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful men 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.
