You are no exception for Failure
There are times that unfortunate circumstances happen and you are no exception. Every successful people in history have experienced failure along the way. Steve Jobs – ousted from Apple at some point of his journey, Richard Branson suffered dyslexia in his early 20s. My list could go on, but looking at the journey of these successful entrepreneurs, they have encountered defeat and momentary setbacks. But they used every failure and defeat to their advantage. And they are now one of the successful personalities in the industry.
For Steve Jobs, he always has it in him. From the beginning, he already knew what he wanted in life. Having fired from his own company did not stop him from pursuing his passion for technology and he continued to harness his skill and came up with innovations for the market, which lead him to establish 2 companies, Pixar and Next. The latter company would have been a strong competitor of Apple had it not been purchased by the latter. And once again, Steve Jobs is back as the CEO of Apple, until such a time that his resignation is announced.
Richard Branson, although he has poor academic performance because he was suffering from dyslexia, it did not stop him from wanting to be successful. Just like Steve, he already knows what he wants at an early age. He has always wanted to become a successful entrepreneur. And he did everything he could to become one. His frustrations motivated him to become UK’s Business Magnate. The Title of his published book, “Oh Screw it, let’s do it.” Is his philosophy that led him to own Billion dollar companies.

Steve Jobs and Richard Branson have a successful mindset. They both have the passion and tenacity of purpose. They have the right attitude for success and are resilient when it comes to having to face difficulty. And I guess this is what every entrepreneur should possess.
