Abraham Lincoln and Failure

In business, we are constantly looking for leaders. One of the characteristics of leadership is to keep going with your mission after a failure. Since you have been in this business for three weeks, you must have had a failure by now.

Did you quit because of it already?

How about when you first fell from walking? Did you quit then?

The PRIZE in MLM is so much more than the PRICE, it’s silly.

Again, I’m a big fan of Abraham Lincoln; here are some quotes:
“That some achieve great success, is proof to all that others can achieve it as well.”

“When I do good, I feel good. When I do bad, I feel bad. That’s my religion.”

“You have to do your own growing no matter how tall your grandfather was.”

“I don’t know who my grandfather was; I am much more concerned to know what his grandson will be.”

Many of our leaders are constantly talking about how personal development has helped them become the people they are and helped them achieve the success they’ve had. I admit that I am junkie when it comes to personal development recordings and books too. Reading about the great leaders of the past, and what they went through inspires me to keep going; it will help you too. Here is Abraham Lincoln’s Resume:

“My great concern is not whether you have failed, but whether you are content with your failure.”- Abraham Lincoln.
