Think about someone like Walt Disney who battled with bankruptcy and almost giving up on his dream. Or maybe even Steve Jobs, who not only started his company from a garage, but got fired from the company he built.
These are just 2 examples from hundreds of the greatest. What did they have in common? Perseverance.
The Art of Perseverance was the name of one of the most recent podcasts that I created (If you want to check it out, click here).
This is an extremely and timely important issue to discuss, so I want to share a little bit more about this with you and expand on what I have previously written about.
There is a reason why the greatest business people of all time hold their title. Most didn’t have a handout to help them start a career.
The ability to keep going no matter how difficult the situations they faced were. They kept their mind right and put one foot in front of the other no matter how beat down or tired they were from life.
I share these stories with you just to share that you are not alone in your struggles with business. You can reach the dreams that you strive for. You can run the business you want if you keep working hard for it.
Especially in business, not many things come easily. I have had my fair share of struggles, and I am still going through them. I help my clients deal with the many business struggles that they are presented with.
When it gets difficult, giving up should not be the first thought that comes into your mind. If you truly want it, you will find the solution for it.
Perseverance is the ability to prove to yourself that you got what it takes. The confidence boost will be off the charts when you can hit a home run when no one expects that to happen.
Think about it, some of the greatest highlight reels on ESPN are game winning plays with only a few seconds left.
Just because the game is won in the final few seconds doesn’t mean you weren’t hustling throughout the whole game with the absolute desire to win.
Don’t knock yourself down because you are losing in the first quarter. Keep up the strength to put one foot in front of the other to reach the goal that you desire most.
Business is difficult, we both know the struggles. But they don’t have to define the end result.
If the problems in your business are too big, or you can’t do it on your own, With Purpose is always here to help. Whether it deals with your People, Processes, or Profit, you should invest in the solution.
