It?s a funny thing, persistence. It?s the kind of thing that?s easy to overlook. After all, aren?t things like education and leadership qualities what give the entrepreneur his edge?

Many factors contribute to an entrepreneur?s ability to succeed, education, life experience, and leadership qualities are indeed valuable, but nothing, NOTHING, beats persistence. Gone With the Wind was rejected by 38 publishers. Walt Disney was turned down 302 times before finally getting financing for creating Walt Disney World, and KFC founder Colonel Sanders was rejected 1009 times before finding a taker for his chicken recipe.

Unlike ANYTHING else in business, Persistence delivers results.

Stay persistent. DO NOT GIVE UP.
