Persistence is my middle name

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

Today, people lack persistence and motivation. They often give up too easily. So how do we learn to persevere? How do we find persistence and harness its power? How do we find the motivation to stay the course against all odds? Do you know what motivates you?

Persistence is the ability to hold on, hanging on when you just don’t think you have the strength for one moment longer. Distract yourself from giving up and quitting. Have a clear understanding of your goals, your dreams and have confidence in your abilities.

One of my mentors had once commented, “There are no problems, just challenges”.

So I say to you, challenge yourself. And grow as a person and as a true professional.

A true humbling experience in sales is working in retail. It is a long tedious process and the end results are not necessarily rewarding. You work late, you work weekends, and you stack and stack shelves. But it does have its merits; you meet a broad spectrum of clients. They challenge you mentally, grill you and make you think outside the box. You cannot earn this sitting in a cubicle.

This is where I had to reach down deep inside and find the self-discipline and courage needed to solve a problem.

This is exactly what we do here at Trusted Translations, Inc. We keep digging till we find the perfect solution for our clients.

The ability to solve problems is what separates us from our competitors. We perceive the problem as a challenge and focus on solutions.

That is what persistence is – sticking it out – not giving up – trying consistently, till we get it right.

Keep trying just ONE MORE TIME!!!
