“Good people are good because they’ve come to wisdom through failure. We get very little wisdom from success, you know.”
Your business will go through cycles of success and failure. Some days you will be toiling away in the valley of hard work, with little reward in sight. Later, you will find yourself on the mountain top of success, with an intoxicating view of rewards stretching in front of you. The problem is that we don’t learn anything on the mountain tops; the air is too thin up there. We do our learning in the valleys, while we are working without the intoxicant of success. So don’despairir that you are in a valley; you have to make it through the valleys and the work and the lessons to reach the next mountain top.
