Persist until you win
Building a successful business will require persistence and determination. Though many
would like you to believe otherwise (including most of our competitors), there's simply
no such thing as "get rich quick." And, I'm sorry, but almost all "overnight success"
stories you hear about were actually YEARS in the making.
Success comes before
work ONLY in the
dictionary, but stick with it
and you can experience the
massive success that those
with unrealistic, "I-want-it-now" expectations never
hang around long enough
This is the core of my
personal success. I hung
around! I'm sure hundreds
of thousands of people
started a business in 1985
as I did, most perhaps with
more experience, more talent, and/or more money to invest, who are no longer in
business today. Why did I succeed when they did not? I believe it's because I
APPLIED MYSELF to the goals I set for myself and I refused to fail. "Persist until you win" has always been my motto and it continues to serve me every single day!
"Failure is the path of least PERSISTENCE."
"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 alone 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."
-John Calvin Coolidge
