Success in business is not the result of an instant or temporary miracle, but rather the fruit of a long history of hard work, effort, trips, falls and retries that ultimately lead to the desired goal.

"When we look at people and organizations that are the most successful, we often imagine they are geniuses who made a smooth trip to the promised land. But when you examine each success story closely, they are full of crushing defeats, moments close to death and countless setbacks," says Josh Linkner, fastcompany.com blogger.

The popular lubricant WD-40 got its name from the 39 previous experiments which failed. WD-40 literally means "Water Displacement – attempt number 40." If they had given up like most of us would have, there would be many more squeaking hinges in the world today.

Do not give in to the errors, but assimilate them. Persistence and determination are the ingredients of success. And remember, as the author says, that "before Oprah was Oprah and (Steve) Jobs was Jobs, they were considered misguided dreamers rather than industry leaders."
