“Victory belongs to the most persevering.” — Napolean Bonaparte

American industrialist John D. Rockefeller Sr., often regarded as the richest person in history observed, “I do not think that there is any other quality so essential to success of any kind as the quality of perseverance. It overcomes almost everything, even nature.”

Walt Disney writes, “All the adversity I’ve had in my life, all my troubles and obstacles, have strengthened me….You may not realize it when it happens, but a kick in the teeth may be the best thing in the world for you.”

The Bottom Line: Leaders understand the value of adversity and see it as an opportunity to persevere, learn and grow in character.
