What does the World Cup, Grant Cardone, and lots of points have in common?

I just read an article by Grant Cardone (click here to see it) in which he was talking about the world cup and how in some games you may see a score of 1 – 0.  

On the surface, you can say it only takes 1 to win the game or to use another metaphor it only takes one sperm to do the job.  

What you don’t see is the number of shots attempted, or in the case of sperm all the other millions that don’t make it.

Applying this to business and life, it takes trying something multiple times in order to make it.  Thomas Edison attempted 10,000 times, and I’ve read other accounts where it was closer to 14,000 attempts to invent the incandescent light bulb.

"Our greatest weakness lies in giving up. The most certain way to succeed is always to try just one more time."   Thomas Edison  CLICK 2 TWEET

14,000 attempts to invent one product that went and changed the world!

Think about that in your own business and life.  Are you giving up too early when you just simply haven’t tried enough times?

I know I used to be in that same boat!  Thank you again Grant Cardone for the inspiration (Click here to see his Youtube channel).
