Wouldn’t it be nice if business success was easy? If there was a formula for success, like all the self-help gurus would have us believe?
My answer to those questions is no. I think it’s good that business is challenging and difficult at times.
It’s only through fighting past the tough times — and puzzling through the challenges — that we learn. And once we’ve put the effort in, we appreciate the success we’re able to create more than if it was handed to us.
