Leadership Minute: Hope That Prevails


Most of the important things in the world have been accomplished by people who have kept on trying when there seemed to be no hope at all. – Dale Carnegie

This is one of the secrets to personal success and your success as a leader. It’s not found in your possession of superior knowledge or skill. It’s not your pedigree nor is it your social status. Your success is realized in your ability to keep on trying. When you are up against the odds – keep trying. When you are discouraged – keep trying. When you feel like giving up and the critics are all you hear – keep trying. For in the trying you will eventually prevail. In trying you will meet with success. Don’t give up!
