Strategic Essentials

Business Motivation – November 17, 2010

Success Requires Courage

The goals and dreams we seek require courage and risk-taking. Have the courage to take just a little more risk every day, but never risk more than you are willing to lose.

Remember that all we ever get in life are results. Not always the result we wanted, but still, results. Thomas Edison didn’t fail over 500 times. He succeeded in finding over 500 different ways a light bulb would not work.

On your road to achieving your goals we can learn from a valuable lesson from the turtle. A turtle only make progress when it sticks its neck out.
