Persistence and Failure

“Many of life’s failures are people who did not realize how close they were to success when they gave up.” Thomas A. Edison

Displayed below are two 2009 tweets by WhatsApp (acquired for $16+ billion today by Facebook) cofounder Brian Acton that show that even the most successful entrepreneurs experience a little failure here and there. In my opinion, how one reacts to the failure is most important.
