The Will to Achieve

How does one get that will, that drive? It depends on how one handles failure. There is no success without failure.  Try to learn from your mistakes. There is something called a positive mindset. Reassess, eliminate, then re-execute.

Beyonce Knowles, the singing diva, never forgot when she lost a singing competition in 1993. It is reported, Oprah lost her TV job in Baltimore, but persevered and is now worth 3 billion dollars. And then there is Alexandria Ocasio Cortez, and her fellow fresh women of color in the US Congress: Ayanna Pressley and Ilhan Omar.
