“Many of life's failures are people who did not realize how close they were to success when they gave up.” ~ Thomas Edison
I love that quote.
One of my core beliefs is that the game isn't over until I say it's over. For the most part, that means the game isn't over until I win.
That is an interesting belief to hold … and it has many consequences.
Here is another good one from Winston Churchill.
Many of the people we see as most successful have failed more times than they can count. Nonetheless, they kept going until they persevered.
Here are a few examples.
Jack Ma, Co-Founder and Executive Chairman of Alibaba Group.
"Today is cruel. Tomorrow is crueller. And the day after tomorrow is beautiful."
Richard Branson, Founder of Virgin Group
“You’ve got to take risks if you’re going to succeed. I would much rather ask forgiveness than permission.”
Walt Disney, Founder of The Walt Disney Company
"All our dreams can come true, if we have the courage to pursue them."
Keep on keeping on.
