Walt Disney was turned down 302 times before he got financing for his dream
of creating the "Happiest Place on Earth". Today, due to
his persistence, millions of people have shared 'the joy of
Disney'. Colonel Sanders spent two years driving across the
United States looking for restaurants to buy his chicken recipe.
He was turned down 1,009 times! How successful is Kentucky
Fried Chicken today?
Having said this, keep in mind that you must constantly
reevaluate your circumstances and the approach you are using
to reach your goal. There is no sense in being persistent at
something that you are doing incorrectly! Sometimes you have
to modify your approach along the way. Every time you do
something you learn from it, and therefore find a better
way to do it the next time.
