Small Business and Industry, Who Are the Heroes?

So who are the Heroes?

The heroes, the difference makers have failure as the common core to their success. They all tried, failed, learned, forgot (or chose not to remember) that they failed and tried again.

Rinse and repeat until they succeeded. And then guess what…They failed again, numerous times even after success.

The biggest difference that I have seen in the most successful people that I have met and read about (Famous or Not) is that those who have succeeded realize that there will be trials and tribulations along the way.  They essentially went from “failure to failure without losing enthusiasm” as Churchill is famously quoted as saying.

Success and perseverance

In every great success there was those who doubted, those who overlooked and those who underestimated. But in every great success there was also someone who never gave up, kept pursuing their dreams and achieved what they sought out to achieve.

So what it is that you are working on as a small business leader?

Or maybe you are hanging out here because you see yourself as a Latino business leader in the near future, keep striving, keep dreaming and keep reaching because for those who want it bad enough, giving up isn’t an option.  Go and make a difference.

Go be a heroe!
