"Often it is not the wrong start but the wrong stop that makes the difference between success and failure."
The inspirational message for the self employed from this quote is:
By saying that “Often it is not the wrong start but the wrong stop that makes the difference between success and failure”, Og Mandino is trying to tell us that, usually, we start out in business all keen and full of energy, but then we just stop. And it is by stopping, that we not only limit ourselves in terms of achieving our dreams, but we also stop any means of ensuring the future success of our businesses. Yes, business is tough and there will be many times when you feel like just giving up, but you cannot. It’s in the tough times that you need to just push on through till you get to the other side. The tough times will pass and you will be able to continue on your path to achieve your dreams. Ensure that one of your personal strengths is the ability to carry on, no matter what. Above all else, be aware of making the wrong stop.
