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.

Steve Jobs’ Vision of the World

Transcript: “When you grow up you tend to get told the world is the way it is and you’re life is just to live your life inside the world. Try not to bash into the walls too much. Try to have a nice family, have fun, save a little money.  That’s a very limited life. Life can be much broader once you discover one simple fact: Everything around you that you call life was made up by people that were no smarter than you and you can change it, you can influence it, you can build your own things that other people can use.  Once you learn that, you’ll never be the same again.”
