Perseverance 101:4 Never Give Up!!!

Lets talk about something must business owners don't like to think about never mind talk about, When your business fails.

So you have worked endless hours doing everything you possibly can do to have a successful business but in the end it doesn't work out.  Now you are going through all the emotions, why me, what did I do wrong, where do I go from here?  
Negatives thoughts start to sneak back into your head.  You think well if I failed once, what makes me think I won't fail again?  Why waste my time?  Owning a business must not be for me.  Go read Perseverance 101:2 Need Some Inspiration? 

So now what?  This is where perseverance comes in full force.  Learn from your mistakes then go back an follow the steps in How to build an Empire.

 Life is not easy for any of us. But what of that? We must have perseverance and above all confidence in ourselves. We must believe that we are gifted for something and that this thing must be attained. 

--Marie Curie Polish-French chemist

Are you still to scared to persevere?  Think about Romans 5:3-5

And not only that, but we also glory in tribulations, knowing that tribulation produces perseverance; and perseverance, character; and character, hope.  Now hope does not disappoint, because the love of God has been poured out in our hearts by the Holy Spirit who was given to us.
-Romans 5:3-5

Let's break this down. 

Tribulation(Your business) is a cause of great trouble or suffering.
Perseverance(Your action) is a steady persistence in a course of action, a purpose, a state, especially in spite of difficulties, obstacles, or discouragement.

Character(Who you are) is the mental and moral qualities distinctive to an individual.
Hope(How you feel) is a feeling of expectation and desire for a certain thing to happen.

Why do we glory in tribulations?  

When you have a problem, you start to solve it(perseverance).  Once you start to persevere,  you start feeling good about yourself(character).  Once you start feeling good again, your hope comes back.  When your hope comes back, you succeed!
