Victory is sweetest when you’ve known defeat.Malcolm S. Forbes
All of us want to experience success.
But what is success?
Success is a different thing to different people.
How we define success may differ but one thing we can agree on is that success can be achieved only when we persevere through hardships and difficulties.
- Successful relationships have many deep or difficult talks.
- Successful businesses have undergone many trials and errors.
- Successful athletics have put in countless hours practicing their crafts over and over.
Yes, some people stumbled upon success accidentally but those successes never seem to last. For most of us, success comes at a price.
