How to get what you want in business: the benefits of persistence

Learning the value of persistence and persevering when times are tough can connect you to a successful business career and life.

Don’t give up or throw in the towel too early – success might be just around the corner.

As the saying goes, ‘where there’s a will, there’s a way’. If you want something bad enough, follow my video blog guide to perseverance which covers the four simple steps of getting what you want:

1. Ask – know what you want
2. Seek – take action
3. Knock – just because a door isn’t opened instantly, it doesn’t mean it won’t be opened one day

Remember, ‘no’ is just the beginning of negotiations.
