Words Wednesday: Persistence

Very few people/products were an overnight success.

For example:

Tim Ferriss, the subject of yesterday’s post, was turned down by 14 publishers before going on to launch a bestselling book.

KFC founder Colonel Sanders was turned down 1,009 times before someone agreed to buy his chicken recipe.

The UK’s best known entrepreneur Richard Branson has had almost as many business failures as successes.

If you want to be a success, persistence is key.
