Take a Tip From Edison
The only way to succeed is to believe in yourself. Here's how to keep the faith even when you run into roadblocks.
Thomas Edison is credited with developing more than 1,000 inventions. His friends and family called him crazy because he refused to give up on any of his ideas. His persistence and tenacity in finding practical solutions to any problems he encountered became his hallmark. The word failure wasn't in his vocabulary; he simply believed that with hard work and determination, he could achieve anything he set his mind to.
Edison's success teaches us that if we give up too easily, we can lose out on all kinds of opportunities for advancing our businesses. No matter how well you execute your plans, you will always encounter complications along the way. If you want to persevere in the face of challenges and achieve your goals, you must remain committed to succeeding--no matter the circumstances.
