I am not the smartest guy, and certainly not the luckiest. The only trait about me, that sets me apart from 90% of people, is my persistence. Everything I’ve achieved, I gained from being persistent.
Everybody I’ve met on my journey, that I persuaded to try their hand at entrepreneurship, quit at some stage, when challenges arose. I’ve done nothing but trudge through bullshit obstacle after another.
At this point, the only difference I perceive between successful and unsuccessful people, is that the former just won’t quit. In a game of survival of the fittest, survival is victory.
