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 to receive.
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
