Due to snow, an alternative topic will be discussed today.
There are a few that can't wait to get up every morning, begin their morning ritual, go to work, and manage their businesses (or chosen path in life). These are the true business leaders of the world. Here are a few examples to drive home the importance of perseverance in business. These examples were offered by Steve Tobak, editor.
Jeff Bezos founded Amazon in 1994, He says it was the tenacity of a highly competitive, results driven culture built on a version of survival of the fittest called 'purposeful Darwinism.'
Steve Jobs said in a 1995 interview, "I'm convinced that about half of what separates the successful entrepreneurs from the non-successful ones is pure perseverance. It is so hard and you pour so much of your life into this thing, there are such rough moments in time that most people give up. And I don't blame them, it's really tough." Indeed Apple has persevered; the company was nearly bankrupt when Jobs returned as CEO in 1997.
Nobody got Google at first. Larry Page and Sergey Brin pitched their idea for a standalone search-engine company all over Silicon Valley before Sun co-founder Andy Bechtolsheim finally wrote them a check for $100,000. It took years before Google came to dominate the market, and become a popular verb all over the world.
Lastly, as Tommy Newberry stated, "No matter who you are, your progress and success in life will depend, more than any other factor, on how you invest the twenty-four hours you're blessed with each day."
