Persistence

Posted by Jeffrey Fortner on

Calvin Coolidge said, "Nothing in the world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent."

When obstacles arise, you can't give up. You must persist. Trust yourself, your vision, and your ability until your goal is accomplished. People will object. They will try to hold you back, and you will be told "no, you aren't good enough." It is what you do in the moments directly following a failure that will determine the course of your future.  

Once, there was an older man, who was broke, living in a tiny house and owned a beat up car. He was living off of $99 social security checks. At 65 years of age, he decided things had to change. So, he thought about what he had to offer. His friends raved about his chicken recipe, and he decided that this was his best shot at making a better life.

He left Kentucky and traveled to around to different states to try to sell his recipe. He told restaurant owners that he had a mouthwatering chicken recipe and he offered the recipe to them for free, just asking for a small percentage on the items sold. Sounds like a good deal, right?

Unfortunately, not to most of the restaurants. He heard NO over 1000 times. And even after all of those rejections, he didn’t give up. He believed his chicken recipe was something special. He got rejected 1009 times before he heard his first yes.

With that one success Colonel Hartland Sanders effectively changed the way Americans eat chicken. Kentucky Fried Chicken, popularly known as KFC, was born.

Remember, never give up and always believe in yourself in spite of rejection. Even when the world seems dead set on keeping you down, the spirit of persistence can guide you to better opportunities and successes. At Truwear we want to help facilitate your persistence as you struggle to achieve your endeavors. Creating a clothing line that easily traverses with you throughout any activity means you can look good, feel good, and accomplish more because your clothing can handle it.
