Failure Perseverance Success

“Never Give Up. Almost nothing works the first time it’s attempted. Just because what you’re doing does not seem to be working, doesn’t mean it won’t work. It just means that it might not work the way you’re doing it. If it was easy, everyone would be doing it, and you wouldn’t have an opportunity.”

  1. It is truly inspirational to hear of people who have failed and then went on to big success. You can ad to the list Jack Canfield with Chicken Soup for the Soul, and I believe you can also add the creator of Mrs. Field’s Cookies, who was told that they wouldn’t sell because Americans like their cookies crunchy.

  2. Hey David,

    Thanks for stopping by…I did not know that about Mrs. Fields. Now her cookies are the standard that everyone else attempts to achieve.
