If there is one thing , one prize piece of knowledge that I would pass on to someone who asks me what it takes to make it in the world of business I would tell them that it is Persistence. Not just persistence in interviews, meetings and pitches… but persistence with yourself.
Who is the person that keeps you on track and goal-oriented? It’s you of course. If you choose not to be hard-headed in dealing with yourself then who will? It is of the utmost importance that you push yourself each day in order to get where you want to be. It is greatly important that you hold yourself responsible for your victories and your losses.
